The first time I met Bridgitte, CEO and Founder of sustainable furniture manufacturer Natural Pod, it was around 2am in a forest on a remote island off the rugged coast of British Columbia.

NaturalPod make sustainable furniture for learning environments like schools. Here's an example at the Fairchild Junior Academy in Hong Kong where they designed and built the furniture. Her and her team are redefining how we think about classrooms, and how children develop and grow.
This is all the more remarkable considering Bridgette is a self-confessed introvert and started the company knowing virtually nothing about manufacturing, or early childhood education.
