REAP SUSTAINABILITY PROFILE (2016)
Vertical Oxygen recognizes the mental and physical health benefits that plants bring to our lives, and has been building living walls across North America since 2012.
Founder Nathalie Callede grew up in Africa surrounded by tropical plant life, which planted the seeds of her passion. She studied ethnobotany in France, and after putting up with seven year's worth of frigid Alberta winters wanted to create a tropical escape for herself and others. She runs the company with her carpenter husband Tim Suddaby by her side.
