I founded Nutmeg & Co in 2018 because of my love for animals and running my own online shop. I started the business when I was 15 years old out of my home in Vancouver, BC. At the time, I was fostering orphaned kittens from my local cat shelter, VOKRA or Vancouver Orphaned Kitten Rescue Association and wanted to start a business that would allow me to help VOKRA. Since we opened, we have been donating 10% of all profits to VOKRA so we can give back to the community through a rescue I am passionate about. We also make all of toys with eco-canvas and 100% cotton fabrics so our toys are eco-friendly and we use biodegradable bags to package our toys so we make the smallest possible environmental impact.
