I have had diverse positions at Bare Necessities; from making the products in my kitchen (in the early days), shipping them out, to cleaning my mum's kitchen in the aftermath, working with stores to retail our products, to spending my weekends at pop-up markets, conducting trash talks and DIY workshops, and coding the website at nights. Today at Bare Necessities, I ideate on new projects and initiatives to make our work more inclusive, consult on zero waste and sustainability projects and work on developing our overall mission alongside this amazing team!
