Our Story

 

 

Welcome to Naturally Canada Marketplace, founded in 2016 and now located in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

It all began with doing research in sourcing Canadian sustainable designers and manufacturers of natural products, focusing on sustainable fibres and fair-trade efforts. 

Our research taught us just how harmful 'fast fashion' is to our environment.

And so our intent and goals quickly became a need to encourage slow fashion; a wardrobe full of great quality, comfortable, yet stylish pieces that will last a lifetime rather than a closet of synthetic materials that will end up in landfills after a short life span. 

It is our intention to diversify and include Global brands that are really making a difference in producing environmentally friendly, low impact fashion and related products, that do no harm.

We are also committed to helping small businesses, and supporting local artisans. Contact us for collaboration and share your stories on our new blog page 'the movement'.

We support One Tree Planted and plant trees with every purchase made on our store.

We also support CarbonClick, by reducing our carbon footprint one small step at a time. Read more about how we are doing this (one carbon footprint at a time) on The Movement page

And of course we advocate for Ocean clean-up and all the good they do in cleaning up our oceans worldwide!

It would be great if we would all just 'do something', no matter how small.

Along the way, many people contributed to naturallycanada with their ideas and input, including my talented, loving family and friends. It is important for me to pay homage to Greg Conyngham, Co-Founder, who is no longer with us, having been inspirational in our early days. He will always remain in our story!

And most importantly, thank you to our loyal customers for making this journey with us so much fun and inspiring! We now offer loyalty rewards that we call "nature points", please take advantage of this and contact us with any questions you may have!

Our story continues...in the caring of our environment.

We know where our clothing comes from; do you?

Kimberley Lisa Milette is the Founder of  naturallycanada and Co-Creator of eco.spirit.emporium Inc. Kim's attraction to clothing/textiles, in general, began quite some time ago, slowly developing into a love of fashion - not all fashion and not all fabrics. One of her greatest pleasures is to encourage women and men to take a chance and wear something different, in more natural, earth healthy choices. The discipline of many years of classical ballet has resulted in a solid work ethic. Her innate, creative drive extends itself into all areas of life, including interior and exterior spaces, with gardening being a love. Kim has a constant stream of ideas, which she willingly shares with others in her desire to see benefits for all and as she prefers to call it "imagineering"...
