On this week’s show, Cayley shares more on her background and what got her interested in the sustainability, and heritage conversations. Turns out, for her — language was her entry point. Having studied linguistics, and speaking multiple languages, Cayley was exposed to the power of sustainable business through some of her experiences abroad, that her interest in language originally connected her to.
The below thoughts, ideas + organizations were brought up in this chat:
Symbology, Cayley’s friend was launching this company nearby in Jaipur, while she was studying in India
Dr. Habashi, professor at University of Oklahoma, Cayley worked with her and her nonprofit Child’s Cup Full in the past, as well as helped them launch the Darzah brand, focused on Palestinian embroidery
Masaya & Co, furniture brand Made Trade carries, that started as a reforestation project in Nicaragua (for every piece they sell, they plant 100 trees because reforestation is their top priority)
