Ecoleader: Sharegate

Whiskey Rocks
– September 2018 –

 A Gift with Class, Perfect for Your Favourite Glass


Sharegate was looking for an elegant and classy product to give their VIP clients at the Microsoft Ignite conference. They chose our whiskey rocks for this special occasion, made by Lithologie.

The positive impacts of our product 

Economic impacts – One of our greatest commitments and values here at Kotmo ​​is to design and create products locally. This product was designed and produced by Lithologie. The premium rocks were extracted in Trois-Rivières, north of Quebec, with the utmost care for the environment, using simplified extraction methods. The cutting and polishing of the rocks was done in their factory, in Trois-Rivières, as well as the hand-made packaging. In total, 5 local businesses were involved in the creation process of this unique product. 

Environmental impacts – The manufacturers are located in the province, making production entirely local.  The products only travelled a total of 5 km to reach the client. This means greenhouse gas impacts were limited throughout the production process — that’s a win for the company, and the environment!

Social impacts –By handing out a locally made product, Sharegate 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.

Sharegate – A model Ecoleader

Sharegate 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.
