We ask ourselves this question every day and work hard to find the best solutions we can. Here are some examples of the solutions we have worked with to date.
Zero Waste Certification
Our silver Zero rating means we divert a minimum of 90 percent of our waste for reuse, recycling, composting and recovery for use in nature or the economy. Our initiatives include having one of our offices go entirely paperless, and expanding and labeling our waste and recycling system to divert efficiently. Certification is a rigorous process, and each year we submit 12 months of data for scientific evaluation by Green Business Certification Inc., a global, third-party credentialing body.
When a product is certified organic, it means that it is made of ingredients that have been produced without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified plants.
The farming practices used to grow organic food are designed to encourage soil and water conservation and to reduce pollution. The benefits are: less chemical contaminants entering your body and farming practices that are better for the environment.
To claim a product is organic it must comply with the USDA Organic Standards.
B Corps are a group of for-profit companies, certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. These standards match perfectly with our company values. There are many requirements but here are a few that we are most proud to meet:
- The promotion of women to management positions
- The employment of newcomers to Canada
- The introduction of Zero Waste Initiatives
- The endorsement of an inclusive work environment
- The operation of a sustainable business model
Together we can make the world a better place for future generations. We greatly appreciate the support of our partners and consumers in this endeavor.
