Whenever possible we use inks that are water-based
Key Innovations is committed to environmental sustainability. The best way for us, and our clients, to be sustainable is by selecting branded products that have the most environmentally friendly origin and lifecycle.
That means the item is:
Useful and held on to by the recipient as opposed to a low value giveaway promotional item that ends up of in the trash.
Is made in a way that the product, packaging, and delivery is designed to reduce its environmental impact.
Product Selection to Reduce our Impact
Selecting local sources for our custom branded promo products whenever possible
We source locally, within Canada, then the US, and lastly abroad
Choose the most environmentally friendly products and highlight those options for our clients
Reduce the amount of plastic we use in our products and packaging
Show products made from other, more sustainable, materials
We specifically request to remove excess plastic packaging for products that do not need it
Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction
We find the most efficient way to transport goods is to use a courier rather than our own vehicle
Key Innovations encourages our sales people to work from home rather than commute into the office to reduce emissions.
When ordering multiple items from the same supplier source we request that all packages ship together in one shipment rather than separate shipments to reduce courier vehicle emissions.
Refusing, Reducing, Reusing, Recycling
We request no individual plastic packaging on items such as pens and request items ship bulk to reduce the use of excess packaging.
Our building is part of a strata complex built in the 1990s and does not have the physical space for recycling bins. Because of this limitation, we take old cardboard boxes, paper and catalogues, recyclables, metal, and Styrofoam home to our residential recycling stream.
old cardboard boxes, paper and catalogues, recyclables, metal, and styrofoam
We donate defective products and deleted clothing samples to local charities
After we receive a shipment we will re-use the box and any packaging that came with it
