The Gaia Collection was started by two year 13 students and friends from Wa Ora Montessori School in Wellington Olivia Ediriweera and Finch Bennett. After a successful first year of business, it was decided that the business would continue with just Olivia, but Finch is always going to keep in the loop with where the business is going.
Olivia Edirweera - Owner and Co-Founder
A little bit about me: I’m the owner of The Gaia Collection and have a huge passion for protecting the environment. So passionate that now that I’ve finished high school in 2022 I will be starting at Massey in Palmerston North to do a Bachelor of Science Majoring in Zoology (Pst that’s animal studies!). I’ve always wanted to make a difference for wildlife and am so proud to say that even before I’ve started my career I already am!
