Westerly Creations was founded by B.C. local Stacey Juss in 2017. This company was created with two goals in mind, to reduce single use plastic and keep food fresh.
A note from Stacey:
First, a question: Does single use plastic fit in with your values?
I am grateful to have grown up in an environmentally conscious family who encouraged me to respectfully explore the mountains and the coast of B.C. However, each time I saw a plastic bag/wrap carelessly left on a mountain trail or floating in the ocean I felt a twinge of sadness. These were sharp reminders of the damage plastic can cause to our environment.
But I was guilty too, I was also a user of plastic bottles, bags and wraps. Let's be honest, it’s convenient and it’s everywhere! Yet, I know that these products are slowly suffocating the environment that I live, work and play in. So, in order to uphold my values of respecting this earth and my own health, I decided to change my behaviour and create a more sustainable product.
This is why I created Westerly Creations; to kick-start my own behavioural change and to help others who share my values. It’s hard to make adjustments to our behaviour. But if I can do it, so can you! Westerly Creations is here to provide you with a stylish alternative to environmentally harmful plastic wrap. So I’ll ask you again, does single use plastic fit in with your values? If not, Westerly Creations is here for you!
