Ecoleader: Cogeco

Handmade iPad sleeve
-October 2017-

An elegant and sophisticated product  !

Mandate

Cogeco was looking for an elegant and sophisticated iPad sleeve to give at their Leadership Team Summit. With their partner Cabana Seguin, we designed an iPad sleeve in felt to express the prestige of their Summit.

The positive impacts of our sleeves

Economic spinoffs – One of our most important commitments and values ​​is to design local products. The product was produced by the designers Allstudio. The cutting and engraving of the felt were done in our studio in Montreal as well as the seems. The logos were made by Machine Design Appliqué. The white boxes are from 100% recycled material and bought in Canada, as well as the black paper. That means 7 local businesses were involved in the creation process for this unique sleeve.

Environmental impacts – Like we said, the manufacturers are located in Montreal and the production is local. Therefore the products only traveled inside Montreal from our office to Cogeco’s –  meaning less than 20 miles. So not much greenhouse gas was produced overall — that’s a win for the company!

Social benefits – By handing out a locally made product, Cogeco is putting the spotlight on local products and showing off the creativity of Canadian designers. The company is therefore positioning itself to promote local talent.

Cogeco – A role model for our Ecoleaders

Cogeco can see the impact it makes by choosing a local supplier: it encourages local creativity, minimizes environmental impacts and supports jobs in the country. This strategy is in line with its mission and overall vision.
