Angeline Dixon - Visionary - Sole Proprietor
I spent 20 years in the airline and freight forwarding industry, with the last 8 years focused on helping small businesses grow by supplementing their departments, streamlining their processes and building partnerships worldwide. 2020 proved to be a challenging year, and with a job loss, social distancing, and state lockdowns, I had time to think about what I wanted for my future. I have always been passionate about environmental issues, human rights, and animal rights. I became a vegetarian in 2007 after doing a research paper on factory farms and the effects on the environment, and I hoped to convince my dying mother to switch to a vegetarian diet with organic dairy to help prolong her fast and short life. I am quite the resilient warrior in the face of adversity having survived the Great Recession from the heart of the rust belt in 2007 and 2008. I spent the better part of the last 13 years becoming mindful to learn how to do things from the ground up as our ancestors did not too long ago, such as making my own yogurt, breads and butters. I have since retired from vegetarianism after 10 years, and now include fish in my diet, which I enjoy curing and smoking.
*The Ardent Habitat®️ offers reusable or biodegradable eco-friendly products for your home, and personal care. Most products are sourced within the United States from small businesses that share the same values and concerns for the environment. An effort is made to source U.S.A. made goods, however if a particular product is not made in the U.S.A., then it is sourced from fair trade and ethical producers worldwide. At times there will be no other option to source locally, or confirm a product is fair trade, however these are a very few select items that may come from China, being that they are the only producer of these reusable goods. Please note that if you are in the European market, efforts are made to source from the European Union, however goods may come from the U.S.A. or under the same conditions as mentioned above. We make every effort to have our producers use sustainable packaging, and shipping materials.
