Ecoleader: Montreal Science Centre Foundation

Grow your ideas
– January 2018 –

A plant to grow!

The project

Montreal Science Centre Foundation wanted an object for their annual benefit evening: the Celebration of Science Gala. The theme of the year is the Future. The team chose our green pixel. The pixel is in the image of pushing the ideas of the future.

The positive impacts of locally made products

Economic spinoffs– We’re committed to locally sourcing our products: it’s one of our most important values. For this project, we worked with Montreal designers Allstudio. The concrete is poured by hand in our workshop in Montreal. The logos are printed on vinyl and glued one after the other. That means 4local businesses were involved in the creation process.

Environmental impacts – Like we said, manufacturing and production were local, meaning products were only transported within the province. We’re all located in Montreal, meaning the pixels travelled less than 10 miles, so not much greenhouse gas was produced overall—that’s a win for the foundation!

Social benefits – By handing out a locally made gift, Montreal Science Centre Foundation is putting the spotlight on local products and showing off the creativity of Quebec designers. Desjardins is therefore positioning itself to promote local talent.

Montreal Science Centre Foundation – A role model for our Ecoleaders

Montreal Science Centre Foundation can see the impact it makes by choosing a local supplier: it encourages local creativity, minimizes environmental impacts and supports jobs in the province. This strategy is in line with its mission and vision.

Thanks to your generosity, you help future generations to flourish.
