Candice Batista: Eco journalist & TV producer/creator, The Eco Hub

My NativeAdVantage:


As The Marilyn Denis Show's very own eco-expert and producer, Candice Batista educates viewers on how to incorporate sustainable environmentally friendly choices as part of their everyday living. Candice began her career as a weather broadcaster at The Weather Network, where she covered major weather events across Canada and around the world. In 2006 Candice launched the first-ever local Canadian Eco-themed television show A GREENER TORONTO, which looked at how Torontonians were fostering and facilitating environmental stewardship. Following that, she successfully launched GLOBAL FOOTPRINTS and @ISSSUE EARTH,  two documentary series that looked at a wide variety of issues facing the planet today, including the role of factory farming, the effects of fast fashion, and toxins in personal care products, just to name a few.

Along with her television experience, both in front of and behind the camera, Candice is a regular blogger for Huffington Post. To date, Candice has lectured to more than 2,000 people. In 2010, she became one of a few select Canadians to be personally trained by former U.S. Vice President and environmental activist Al Gore to help deliver his infamous Inconvenient Truth Presentation. Currently, she runs The Eco Hub, a lifestyle blog (and soon to be brand directory) about discovering how simple it is to take control of the various corners of your life, and how rewarding it feels to open your eyes to an eco-conscious lifestyle.

What do I do best?

My passion for my work comes from a deep love for this planet and the creatures that inhabit it. I believe strongly in collaboration and lifting others up and I believe this has been a huge part of my success.

What makes me the best version of myself?

Compassion, patience and empathy. I always try to think of what others need in a given situation and try to focus on that. I have learned that when you take the focus off yourself and place  it on others you can solve anything.

What are my aspirations?

I am in the process of producing my first documentary, and launching a new angle to my website which is very collaborative and has a strong charity component, my hope is to build a community where like-minded people can really make a difference in the world.  

My Biggest Success?

I was the first person in Canada to host, produce and develop the first local green tv series (A Greener Toronto) that focused on how people were facilitating and fostering environmental stewardship. I am the first person to bring green to mainstream TV in Canada. I work closely with World Animal Protection to raise awareness on the plight of animals around the world.

My Most Challenging Moment?

The biggest challenge has been convincing mainstream media that green in the new black. It’s an ongoing battle. And also convincing people that going green is much easier than they think.

My Motto?

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy practice compassion! Sounds easier than it is! But worth it.

and Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

My husband Bodhi Batista.

Jane Goodall.

Nelson Mandela.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Anywhere in nature.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

Anything that is smart AND sustainable. Good design, solves a problem.

My Current Passions?

Now and always!! LIVE MINDFULLY
