There is a common belief that a corporation’s only objective is to maximize profits for its shareholders. However, at AOR, our goal has always been to create value beyond monetary gains. We believe that we have a clear duty to take care of all stakeholders that are connected to, or impacted by a company’s operations. In our case, this includes “Mother Nature” herself.
To create a greener world today, and to help preserve our planet for future generations, we have created the Eco Series, a line of products contained in the world’s first carrageenan-free vegan softgel. Throughout its development, we have ensured that from start to finish, our products are sustainable.
It takes just one second to stop and make a more ethical decision, but that decision can help change the world.
Pollinators are among some of the most important species in the world, allowing plants to continue to flourish. In Canada, the most important subset of pollinators are the bees, which are responsible for over 70% of all pollination. While the Western Domesticated Honey Bee might be the first species that comes to mind, Canada is also home to around 855 species of native bees, all of which remain key to our ecosystem.
However, bee populations throughout the country have been in a state of decline for over a decade. Honeybees in particular have dealt with parasitic mites, losses of wild habitats, and pesticides, leading to a steep decrease in their populations, and making the production of honey all the more difficult for farmers.
Thankfully, there are small steps that each person can take, from reducing your pesticide use for gardening and landscaping, to growing forage plants that bloom at a variety of different times during the year.
We made the decision to print all of our Eco materials on stone paper instead of traditional pulp paper. Instead of being made from pulp, stone paper is, as the name suggests, made from crushed stone. One tonne of stone paper saves up to 20 trees and 16,000 gallons of water. Furthermore, it is also, fire resistant, 100% recyclable, and conserves energy. Learn more. While the process of recycling paper uses water to turn paper back into pulp, stone paper can be recycled indefinitely, using less energy. Some other benefits of stone paper include: it being smudge proof, acid free, and difficult to tear. Watch more to learn about other stone paper benefits.
