Sustainable wooden trophy
– February 2019 –
Fairtrade was looking for a special trophy to give for his awards.
The positive impacts of a locally-made trophy
One of our most important commitments and values is to design local products.
For this project, we worked with Atelier Antoine, a social reintegration organism. They have used recycled ash. The serigraphy was also made we a local business. In total, 3 local businesses were involved in the creation process for this unique product.
Like we said, the manufacturers are located in Montreal and the production is local. Therefore the bags only traveled in Quebec – meaning less than 115 miles. This means not much greenhouse gas was produced overall — that’s a win for the company!
By handing out a locally made product, Fairtrade is putting the spotlight on local products and showing off thecreativity of Canadian designers. Fairtrade is therefore positioning itself to promote local talent.
Fairtrade – A role model for our Ecoleaders
Fairtrade 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.
