 Meet Dan Vandermolen - Founder & Owner

"I spent a number of years working in the film and TV industry in Toronto Canada, before changing careers and pivoting to a leadership position in a not-for-profit organization. I proudly worked with a small team that managed and led a highly successful thrift store in Waterloo region. This is where my passion for service and a vision for business for the benefit of others was ignited.

The fast pace of film life contrasted with the personal engagement and power of community I experienced in the not-for-profit world gave me the idea to create CHANGE Lifestyle & Apparel. I have been searching for a professional career that would fulfill my need for creativity, my desire to create a for-profit business that is environmentally and sustainability driven, and my passion for community building. I could not find it, so I decided to create it!

I have come to realize that everyone can learn, and everyone can do a bit better. It is better to take one small step closer to a goal than no step at all."
