Christina started her web design business at the height of COVID-19 when everything was shut down. She was inspired by other young entrepreneurs to take a leap of faith and leave her stable job to pursue her passion. Almost two years later, she has designed close to 30 brands and websites for people all over the country. When she was approached by ErthCycle to come on board as their brand designer, she knew it was the perfect fit. When she’s not working away on her laptop, you can find Christina managing a spin + yoga studio in Arizona.

Paige fell in love with ErthCycle in her friend’s backyard at 1:00 a.m. on a random Thursday as she drilled Coop with questions about the product around a firepit. Ever since that fateful night, Paige has been bursting with passion for this product and the desire to bring ErthCycle into the sustainability sphere. She has quickly learned and absorbed all things ErthCycle, and she cannot wait to share it with the world. She takes care of all of the front-end stuff – socials, marketing, blogging, PR, etc. She’s used to wearing many hats and enjoys keeping on her toes. She earned her BA in English and has discovered her passion for writing about intersectional sustainability, educating others about the climate crisis, and informing people of the actions we can take as individuals. She’s also a big fan of her cats, Gnocchi, Rigatoni, and Cheese (oh yeah), hoarding glass jars, shopping secondhand, and cooking. Oh, and eating – can’t forget eating.
Sustainability Tip: One of my favorite ways to reduce food waste (and get a bang for your buck) is to collect food scraps in your freezer and then make your own stock/bone broth!
