To do good, you actually have to do something.

Giving Our All for the Planet

From day one our goal at Relish Branding has been to build a different kind of company – one that grows through positive relationships with our staff, our clients, our community and our planet.

Our work doesn’t stop at the bottom line, because we know having a successful company is about more than just profit. 1% For the Planet has inspired us to do more, and be held to a higher standard.

There are countless environmental pledges businesses can sign up for, but Relish chose 1% for the Planet because this one has teeth! As part of our member pledge, Relish has committed to donating a minimum of 1% of our annual gross revenue to environmental causes. And we’re kept accountable to this commitment through an annual third-party certification of our revenue, and review of our philanthropic, volunteer, and in-kind support for environmental not-for-profit organizations.

Canada has a wide range of worthy environmental causes, and Relish has selected two incredible organizations who are working hard for the planet: Green Action Centre and Zero Waste Canada.

Zero Waste Canada

Zero Waste Canada is a non-profit grassroots organization, dedicated to ending our age of wastefulness through improved industrial design and education for the 21st century.

From supporting the continuous reuse of resources on the front-end, to advocating for the elimination of landfills and incineration on the back-end, Zero Waste Canada’s takes a holistic approach.

Zero Waste Canada provides education on what “Zero Waste” means, and the logic behind the strategy. Through its certification program, Canadian companies can become Zero Waste Certified according to internationally accepted standards. Any company, public or private, for-profit or not-for-profit can become a member and learn the guidelines, and gain technical knowledge to reduce waste.
