Reflecting on 2022

Reflecting on 2022

As we step into a new year we would like to take a moment to thank you and to reflect on the highlights we experienced with Earth Warrior.

First I would like to start with a big THANK YOU!!!!  Without you and your support, we wouldn't be where we are today. Earth Warrior is now 4 Years old because of all the support we receive to work towards our mission to reduce textile waste as well as single use waste. We hope to continue this Journey for many more years to come!

Now to Reflect on 2022.

This past year we made some changes, stepped into new beginnings and achieved some pretty cool things.

February 2022 We moved into a new space which gave us a lot more room to work with. Our studio space almost tripled in size, plus we have a separate room just for textile recycling now!

I had the honor to make a dear friend of mine, Kaitlyn's, wedding dress. It was repurposed from her moms white wedding dress, and I transformed it into a stunning red wedding dress. It had always been a dream of mine to make a wedding dress so when the opportunity came my inner child was tickled. 

Earth Warrior had a few firsts when it came to markets. It was our first time being a vendor at the Banff Yoga Festival, The Edmonton Folk Fest, a one day pop up at the Canmore Farmers Market, and we made it to Vancouver for Circle Craft. 

We hosted a number of Garbage clean up's, 6 in Edmonton, 1 in Kananaskis, and 1 in Canmore. The Garbage cleanups outside of Edmonton were hosted by my friend Kaitlyn.

Earth Warrior's Textile Recycling Program surpassed our year end goal of textiles we were hoping to divert. Our Goal was to reach 8,000lbs of textiles diverted from the landfills by end of the year, and instead we reached 10,593lbs!!! Thank you for sharing our program and bringing us all of your unwanted textiles. 

Moving forward we will continue to keep our textile recycling program going and we hope to have even more garbage clean up opportunities this year.

We feel so blessed to continue this work and we can't wait to continue down this Earth Warrior Journey with you!

Wishing you a wonderful New Year!

Katrina and the Earth Warrior Team.
