Sustainable Foundations Inc. is a green business that works to promote sustainable philanthropy throughout Eastern Ontario. We do this by supporting local environmental charities with our time and talents.

In addition, she volunteers with the Peace & Environment Resource Centre and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
