Words from Nikki:

“You have to believe in it, love it and see the vision for it. If you don’t believe in it, then no one else is going to. If you are going to grow a company, you’re going to have to live and breathe that company.”

“It starts with children and now I’m reconnected to all of what that personal experience means. There’s something world-changing about a child understanding how to grow their own food for example. Think about what happens with that child in their lifetime and the ripple effect that has on the rest of the world. The greatest service I can do is raising a child in a conscious way that can contribute back to the world.”

We’re coming into a time where what you wear and what you choose to put on your body is also a statement of who you are and what you care about. It’s about the love that is put into that thing and its origin story. It becomes a part of your identity.”
