<strong>Shawn</strong> joined <strong>The Organic Box</strong> Team in September 2013 after a summer spent planting trees in BC. Upon returning to Edmonton he had hopes of finding a job that inspired him - ideally a work environment that carried similar values to his own within a company working towards making the world a more positive and sustainable place. He had a few friends working on our Team at the time and heard we were exactly what he was looking for - the rest is history! <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Fun facts about Shawn:</strong></span> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">• In his free-time - he enjoys dancing, adventuring, climbing trees, rapping, writing poetry, and yoga.
