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. 

I started Kindred Homestead Supply, a place 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.

Kate is Kindred's first employee and resident fireball. She helps make the shop beautiful in it's endless iterations and loves doing it. With a vocabulary that would make a sailor blush, her bark is always worse than her bite. She is a better wingman than your buddy from work, and is funnier than your cool older cousin.

Kate is a lover of good company and bad influences. After a lifetime in the service industry, Kate has relished being able to get paid to be creative in a space where she feels like she gets to make a difference. It also doesn't hurt that she enjoys leaving things better than she finds em.  She's lived in Vancouver since before it was cool but hasn't ever been cool herself. She remembers everyone's names.
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."
Molly is our inventory specialist, a maven of organization, Molly’s enthusiasm for everything in its place keeps us in line. she’s the roommate that does the dishes when you don’t. She dabbles in ceramic art and loves to cook. She likes gardening and with her green thumb, she became our in-house expert. Molly loves that she gets to do something new every day, always working on projects, I love that Alex gives us the independence to do what we think is best on projects

“My favorite thing about working at kindred is being immersed in the community. I’ve always wanted to work downtown and the community here in Vancouver is very important to me. It is cool that I work for a place that supports local and upcoming businesses and really cares about people.”
