Meet Sasha Prior of Nezza Naturals
Our 2015 Eco Hero Contest features some amazing individuals in our community who are making the world greener through living their passion.
We were curious to know more about our nominees so we asked them a few questions.
Here is the lovely
Sasha Prior of Victoria's own Nezza Naturals!

 

What specific event put you on the path of sustainability?

To be honest there was not a specific event but rather people in my life that put me on this path. My family and community on Galiano as well as Saltspring Island were big influences! Natural products was something that just made sense to me
and I was thrilled to be able to make a career of it.
 
If you were not doing this line of work- what would you be doing?
My dream years ago was to become a Naturopathic doctor and I actually spent years completing all the pre-requisites required to apply. However, I woke up one day and realized I was already in my dream job, that I was already helping people with their health concerns but in a different way.
 
Who is YOUR Eco Hero?
To be honest - my father, James, is my personal eco hero. He and I started Nezza Naturals together. I recall him teaching me about the healing power of simple, plant based products and it gave me a sense of respect and wonderment for nature, the environment and health.
If I could say one other, it would be David Suzuki! He is has accomplished so much positive change in this world and I believed inspired many people to shift to natural, eco-friendly household and beauty care products.


What change would you most like to see in the world?
A change that I would love to see would be the end of animal cruelty and animal testing. This is something I have always felt very passionate about and I am thankful to be able to support other cruelty-free companies and organizations.
