OUR STORY

While living on the West Coast, it is virtually impossible not to have a connection to nature. Multiple experiences over time can transform into a deeper understanding; to conserve what you love. Whether it is learning to sail, catching a first wave kite surfing, or just sitting at a beach and observing nature, connections are formed.

 

 

The Team: Salt Legacy’s team has a deep passion for what they do. They embody characteristics that align with the core values of the brand. One of the strongest values is connection.

Meaghan McDonald

Founder

Growing up in landlocked Alberta, Meaghan found her true calling for the ocean when she started traveling. She realized her passion for the marine environment through scuba diving. She spent many years working overseas as a certified Dive Master, conducting research and giving educational programs on coral reefs (her first true love). Witnessing multiple ecosystems interacting in a foreign world is what initially shaped the rest of her life. She formally studied Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology, while contributing to multiple marine conservation initiatives on and under the water.  She currently works on the water as a Marine Naturalist and Program Coordinator for a local education program that teaches younger generations about the importance of our fragile ocean ecosystems in the Salish Sea.

 

In 2018 she took the leap and bought her sailboat; Spyhop.  With zero knowledge of sailing, and purchasing the boat within 24 hours of viewing, she decided to also test the waters and live on it for 3 years.  She has a love/hate relationship with her boat, that runs purely on trial and error, but has grown to love the lifestyle and the deep feeling of connection to the sea it embodies. The full story HERE.

 

"I have wanted to create a project for a while that would connect my interests and passions together. Sailing, the ocean, species conservation, and more sustainable alternatives are very important to me." This is how Salt Legacy's concept was born. 

Stay tuned for her full story in the Salt Legacy Speakers Series.

Moadese TAHERI
Lead Sewist 

Moadese is an Iranian slow-fashion designer with 17 years of experience in the fashion industry and tailoring. Her love for this industry started when she was 13 years old, chopping her mother's sheets to make dresses for her younger sister.

Since then, she continued to dig into the fashion world, always striving to learn more to satisfy her ambition. While living and studying for her Masters in "Design for the fashion system" in Politecino di Milano in Italy, she was exposed to an atmosphere that showed her the importance of slow fashion and sustainability. Being involved in pro-environment communities is very important to her while playing an active role in her everyday life to help protect the planet.
