Ecoleader : BOMA

– April 2019 –

A sustainable object to highlight the Earth day

Mandate

Boma Québec was looking for a special customized gift for the Earth day. They wanted something useful and unique. They had a crush on our reusable veggie bags.

The positive impact of the object!

ECONOMIC SPINOFFS

One of our greatest commitments and values here at Kotmo is to design and create products locally. The material, the seam, and the label come from local suppliers. This means 3 local businesses were involved in the creation process for this unique product.

As we mentioned, the manufacturers are located in Quebec and the production is local. Therefore the products only traveled within the province – meaning less than 310 miles. This means greenhouse gas impacts were limited throughout the production process — that’s a win for the company, and the environment!

THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

SOCIAL SPINOFFS

By handing out a locally made product, Boma Québec 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.

Boma Québec – A model Ecoleader

Boma Québec 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.
