Sherry Sobey

IMG_1783Sherry Sobey is the Owner/Manager of Generation Green at The Forks.

Sherry is proud to call Winnipeg home, and couldn’t imagine living anywhere better! As the mother to 3 boys, life has always been busy but she couldn’t imagine it any different!  After winters filled with basically hockey and cheering on her sons, Sherry always looks forward to Winnipeg summers, and spending them at the cottage on Lake Manitoba.

“We don’t do it enough, but every once in awhile I love to detach from the stress life can bring, and just breathe in all the glorious things this world has to offer.  The lakes in Manitoba are the best places to do just that.”

Sherry has an appreciation for life and living it to it’s fullest. After a major health scare in 2007, Sherry made a conscious effort to start living more naturally.  Along this journey, Sherry discovered that others were also searching for safer products. Sourcing these types of neccessaties became quite the task, as well as an ongoing learning process.

Finding fabulous, innovative products that are better for our health, our home, and our families, has become Sherry’s mission. Her hope is that Generation Green will become a showcase for all that is good!


Savannah

img_9445Savannah has been born and raised in Winnipeg. Despite various travelling adventures she has known nowhere else as home.

At the age of 13 she decided to go vegetarian quite naively, and from there developed her deep passion for animal welfare, and since has become vegan. Savannah regularly interns at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary located in High Falls, NY.

Savannah always looks forward to spending her summers at all the local fests-from jazz, to folk, to fringe. She really embraces Winnipeg’s small town feel and appreciates all the amazing local businesses and happenings in the city.

Currently enrolled at the University of Manitoba, she is finishing up her Bachelor of Arts, Honours.

Savannah is excited to be able to spread the message of making your impact on the planet count. Shopping locally, sustainably, eco-friendly, organic, and fair trade are all important aspects of well-being!

 


Dallas Gillingham

Dallas was born and raised here in Winnipeg. Although she’s fallen in love with cities around the world, Dallas is always happy to arrive back home in friendly Manitoba.

 Currently, Dallas is completing an undergraduate degree in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg and has a fiery passion for all things Simone de Beauvoir.

 In her spare time, you can usually find Dallas bobbing/step touching to one of the amazing bands that call Winnipeg home, or sniffing out the best vegan dishes/doughnuts in the city. She also enjoys snapping photos (usually of something glittery) and is the proud owner of six wonderful camera babies.

  Dallas strongly believes in living a conscious, eco-friendly lifestyle that benefits not only the wellbeing of our planet, but also all the beings that call it home! She’s an avid supporter of the amazing locally owned shops of Winnipeg, and is always sporting something second hand (again… usually glittery). 

  Dallas is thrilled to be apart of the ever-growing local Winnipeg business scene and is so excited to work alongside some of her favourite, like-minded, eco-friendly pals on the Generation Green team!

Lori Maione

Lori has always known Winnipeg as home. As the mother of three boys, she’s spent her adulthood caring for and raising her sons. She’s always enjoyed baking for others, travelling to see new places and finding new stores where she can satisfy her love for shopping local.

Recently while spending time at the hockey rink supporting their sons, Lori met Sherry and adored her enthusiasm and zest for her business. Sherry provided Lori samples for some natural skincare products after she expressed her concerns with conventional stuff she was using and Lori was hooked!

Lori has always loved seeing the success of local businesses and visiting farmers markets throughout the summer, so when the opportunity arose, she was so excited to be welcomed into the Generation Green family.

 


Lily Thrift

Lily, though born in Winnipeg, began moving around Canada and Australia at 7 months old. Eventually, almost twenty houses later, she settled back here in Winnipeg.

She has always had a passion for the environment. As a child, she would rescue bugs and take them outside, and wouldn’t let a single toilet paper roll go in the recycling bin before using it in a craft.

As she grew older, she learned more about how to reduce her negative effect on the environment and at 15 became vegan. Always on a journey to a more ethical lifestyle, Lily has recently begun an effort to shop locally and support small businesses.

Lily is pleased to have joined the Generation Green team to help others on their own journeys to more ethical and eco-friendly lifestyles!

 


Elyce Mankewich

Elyce was born in Winnipeg, but raised in Teulon, Manitoba. Although she had moved to Winnipeg to attend the University of Winnipeg, home will always be out of the city limits.

Still at the University of Winnipeg, Elyce is completing her B.A. in English, Honours, with the hopes of continuing her education into a Masters and PhD in Literature, Critical and Cultural studies.

Quite the literature buff, she can be found writing and reading, and often scoping out local bookstores to add to her ever growing pile of books. Currently, she is writing a few stories and novels. When she isn’t doing any of the above, Elyce can be found checking out local music, and exploring Winnipeg for all the wonderful local gems, cafes, and vegan –friendly restaurants.

Being conscious of the environment and her impacts on the earth is a large part of Elyce’s life, from buying second-hand and using vegan and eco-friendly beauty products, to recycling and reducing her carbon footprint as much as she can.

Elyce is super excited to be a part of the Generation Green family, and to help others get into the green lifestyle!
