B Corp Ambassador: Chanelle Sladics

Chanelle Sladics
aka “Captain”
Professional Snowboarder

Q: Where are you from?
A: Newport Beach, CA but now I’m in Breckenridge, CO

Q: When do you think you first developed a love for the planet?
A: I started camping as soon as I came out of the womb.  I have been on nature excursions my whole life, and nothing feels more like home than being surrounded by the power of prestige nature. The older I get, the more remote I want to go. The more untouched, the more beautiful. 

Q: What’s the change you seek in snowboarding? 
A: I founded Community Cup, a 5 star WST event, and executed it as the first zero-waste World Snowboard Tour competition. I want to continue to use my voice as an athlete, commentator, and consultant to inform on creative ways we can nurture our earth, so we can continue playing.

Q: Other than the B Corps, what other organizations are you supporting?
A: Protect Our Winters, Plastic Pollution Coalition, 5Gyres, Keep A Breast, 1% for the Planet...and many more!

Q: Any words you live by?
A: If you can’t see beauty in all, you can’t see beauty at all. 

Q: If you could share a chairlift (or hike a backcountry trip) with anyone, who would you invite? 
A: Those that actively choose happiness, love, and respect for all living things.  Today I’d choose Bob Marley and The Beatles. They found their gift and used it as a creative outlet and force for good. 

Q: What does B the Change mean to you?
A: Actions speak louder than words. 

Q: Who are some of your favorites in the B Corp family?
A: Simply Straws, Klean Kanteen, Guayaki, Elemental Herbs, Patagonia, AOSA … we are all a community.

Q: Want to make a shout out to the community of B Corps?
A: Thank you, you are the solution!
