Founder & Lead Consultant
Leila never thought a career in sustainability was feasible. While studying for her Bachelors, she learned about the harmful impact of our every day personal care products (shampoo, soaps, etc.) on our precious aquatic systems. This ignited her passion in taking care of our natural world. So she decided to pursue it further. In 2012, she decided to complete her Masters in Environment & Sustainability at Western University in London, Canada. Since then, she's worked in the non-profit world, mainly focused in waste management. More specifically, she lived in the fascinating second-hand apparel world. (Do you know what happens to your clothes when you drop them off at a charity? Ask Leila!). Typical of a non-profit, Leila wore a lot of different hats and learned much about project & people management, sales & budgeting, writing business plans & managing vendors in a competitive market. During this time, Leila was inspired by a London (Ontario) fashion designer who was making clothing using local labor and sustainable material like bamboo. She wondered how much a business like this would grow if they shared their impact against the backdrop of fast fashion. So, she got to work in helping businesses in measuring, reducing, and sharing their impact. And W2R Solutions was born.
Anisa's background working in cleantech made it clear that our linear economic model could not be maintained. Working across heavy-polluting industries, including oil and gas, mining and waste management, highlighted the detrimental social and environmental impacts of product production and disposal, and trained her to apply systems thinking to explore sustainable solutions from a holistic perspective. She helps business owners incorporate sustainability in their business by measuring and reducing their impacts. When not working on climate solutions or advocating a circular economy, you can find her exploring the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Anisa is also the Founder of The Circular Consumer, a platform for sharing ideas and creative solutions to climate change and circular economy for businesses and consumers.
