Toronto entrepreneur Jackson Wyatt is somewhat of a poster child for sustainable, design-minded start-ups. An avid environmentalist, he’s dedicated most of his career to developing tangible solutions for climate change. Wyatt cut his teeth at Greenlid, catapulting the company from its roots in compost bins to build out a full suite of products that minimizes plastic waste.

Along the way, he realized that educating people about sustainability was just as important as creating eco-conscious products, kickstarting workshops to teach Canadian students about composting and environmental health. A true jack-of-all-trades, his expertise comes together in his newest venture, CABN: a solution for energy-efficient, affordable, off-grid housing that can be assembled just about anywhere.
