About Wychbury Ave

In 2011, I biked over 2000 km on a cycling tour with thirteen other women on The Otesha Project to teach communities about environmental sustainability and social justice. After delivering over 30 performances about how to reduce unnecessary plastics in our everyday life and prevent human rights abuses, I wanted to put those solutions into practice and decided to make my own bath and body products with fair trade and ethically sourced ingredients, using only plastic-free and reusable packaging. In 2014, in the middle of a maternity leave from teaching, I transformed my basement into a soap-making studio and joined a community of like-minded individuals who were starting a farmers market.​

Starting with tiny batches of only 7 bars at a time, I made, cut and packaged each batch myself, printing my own labels and learning the ins and outs of business as I went. I found a used bicycle trailer, and started towing my entire market setup back and forth to the Esquimalt Farmers Market each Thursday, began stocking local shops in Victoria with my soaps, and I’m now selling from my online shop at www.wychburyave.com, and at over 12 retailers on Vancouver Island. My dream began as a mission to show others how to enjoy the products we love while reducing waste and caring for people and the planet at the same time. I continue to provide vegan, palm oil-free, and fair trade products through my shop and educate others through workshops and daily insights on social media. Come join me! Let’s plant those seeds and be the change together.
