About Our Team


The names behind the faces you see in the shop...



Peadar is hands-on when it comes to the running of the shop. If he's not to be found behind the till, making juices & smoothies, he's probably out the back tending to our urban garden or making displays for the shop with reclaimed materials.  He's also a director at Forest Friends Ireland, a keen supporter of the Dublin Cycling Campaign and having grown up in Rath Cairn Gaeltacht, Co. Meath, Peadar loves an auld chat as Gaeilge. Send any business related messages to peadar@smallchanges.ie

Finn Melvin Caird


Shop Assistant & Graphic Designer

Finn is in her final year of Visual Communications at NCAD and works as a freelance graphic designer when she's not in the shop (she created the design on our t-shirts and reusable bags)!  Finn believes in designing a future that is both sustainable and exciting, and is always grateful for suggestions of new artists to develop her music education, as well as dog-eared vegan recipes. If you're interested in working with Finn you can see her work here  and contact finnmelvincairddesign@gmail.com.


Brand & Content Manager 

With a background in social care, content creation, community management, and a goal to be kinder to the planet, JR feels right at home working at Small Changes. When she's not in the shop a couple days a week or finding new local products/suppliers, she's building websites like this one and creating online content for businesses. Got a good idea for collaboration? For anything content related chat to JR at jr@smallchanges.ie


Shop Assistant

Brigid works in the shop a couple of days a week but is always popping in and out to lend a hand. She loves a good chat both in English and as Gaelige, all the better if you're a fan of Bruce Sprinsteen...she's his biggest fan/stalker.


Shop Assistant & Artist

With a natural flair for freehand art and sign-writing, any of the (good) posters and (neat) signs in the shop are accredited to Nadia! Currently studying hard for her leaving cert and with her heart set on communication science, Nadia works with us one day a week. Also if you'd like a chat in Polish, Nadia is fluent.
