Sasa Bacani

Wander Woman and Environmental Advocate

After realizing that working in the corporate world didn’t leave her feeling satisfied, Sasa wanted to do something more purposeful. She’d always had the urge to start her own business, but what really pushed her to do it was her mother’s death. It made her realize that life is too short to not do the things you want to.

Now she heads the Daydream Republic, a merchandise brand for mindful creative travelers, with a goal to spark magical moments of personal growth and to help people transition to a more sustainable way of traveling. All of this, she says, is geared towards collectively creating a positive impact on our environment.

One of the most difficult aspects of inspiring people to switch to a more sustainable lifestyle is the fact that many people would rather not put in the effort. People think that since only a few people are making the effort to lead a zero-waste lifestyle, it wouldn’t make a difference and would, therefore, be a wasted effort to do it as well.  But in the past year, when she and other zero waste groups began campaigning intensively, she saw the shift in the community. Amending their efforts down to even the little things, as small as using a washable coffee cup instead of a disposable one, and she’s proud of the consistency that they’ve maintained.

She knows that while it may be challenging sometimes, to pursue an unconventional career path that doesn’t end up with her at the usual nine-to-five, having a purposeful business and leading a persevering life make her feel fulfilled—and that is enough for her.
