HANA JAMES

Co-founder and di­rec­tor of re­tail, Green­house Juice

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

If Hana James’ ef­fer­ves­cent per­son­al­ity is any in­di­ca­tion of the ben­e­fits of juic­ing, we’re stock­ing up, stat. The Toron­to­nian opened Green­house Juice in 2014 with An­thony Green plus five part­ners who work be­hind the scenes in New York and Los An­ge­les. Since its launch, the juicery has opened five more lo­ca­tions across the city, quickly be­com­ing the go-to for a pick-me-up. When James isn’t serv­ing up or­ganic cold-pressed elixirs be­hind the counter, she’s con­coct­ing new recipes (the su­per­food-packed smooth­ies are her brain­child) and work­ing with a holis­tic nu­tri­tion­ist to en­sure that ev­ery­thing on the menu is as good for you as it tastes. While the Green­house Juice team has a no­com­pro­mise motto when it comes to sus­tain­abil­ity (glass bot­tles are a must) and pro­duce (it’s al­ways 100-per­cent or­ganic), James is quick to point out that they don’t take them­selves too se­ri­ously. “We like to call our­selves ‘recre­ational juicers,’” she says.
