A gift box perfect for the home!
Desjardins was looking for a gift to give their clients to welcome them into their new home. This gift box includes a wooden stand to hold a cellphone and a pair of keys, a small cactus and two bulk bags to help adopt a zero-waste lifestyle.
The positive impacts of our gift box
Economic spinoffs – One of our most important commitments and values is to design local products. For this project, we worked with the Montreal designers Allstudio. The wood was cut, sanded and engraved in our studio in Montreal, and the bulk bags were developed by québécois entrepreneur Dans le Sac. In total, 9 local businesses were involved in the creation process of this project.
Environmental impacts – As we mentioned, the manufacturers are located in Montreal and the production is local. The gift boxes therefore only traveled within the province of Quebec – less than 180 km. This means greenhouse gas emissions were minimized — that’s a win for the environment and the company!
Social benefits – By handing out a locally made product, Desjardins 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.
Desjardins – A role model for our Ecoleaders
Desjardins 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.
