About the Team

Hey, I'm Alex. And I believe that: 
♥ A low-waste lifestyle should be accessible and affordable for everyone. 
♥ In order to leave this world better than I found it I can make better decisions about what and how I consume. 
♥ We all deserve to be a part of a community where we are valued, loved and lifted up by one another.
Life is too short to take yourself too seriously.
I started Kindred Homestead Supply in the hopes of creating a space for like-minded folk to gather, converse, shop for low-waste products, learn, grow, share, and exist together. I can't wait to meet you and learn your story.
Emily started in January and hasn't looked back. After graduating with her Bachelor's degree in communication & environmental science, Emily looked for a place that aligned with her values.⁠ She is our Social media manager, content creator, outreach coordinator, event planner, and photographer!

"I love working downtown. I was born and raised in Vancouver but am just now feeling a part of the downtown community. My favorite part is building connections and seeing familiar faces. I appreciate Alex for hiring me as her second employee. I have grown so much here and I'll owe a lot to her."
Lexie moved halfway across the country from Iowa and started her journey with Kindred in May 2022. She feels they have found a home in Downtown Vancouver and at Kindred. Lexie attended PCI Academy and graduated to go on to be an esthetician and social media manager for a local painting company. Although they choose to not be in spas anymore, they still continue their education and have found a greater, continued love and purpose for supporting local businesses/creatives, education to a more low-waste lifestyle, thrifting second-hand, and growing Kindred’s impact.

“Having just started my low-waste journey I was so stoked to have been introduced to Kindred. I was welcomed into Washington and downtown with open arms and couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of this community. Coming from jobs and places where I didn’t feel appreciated, Alex and Emily took a chance on hiring me and continue to have trust in me. And, they have let me grow as a person and team member. Because of my support system, I am committed to continuing my journey in healing, educating myself and others, and uplifting those around me.”
