Social and environmental commitment

The F.L. Chicoine Printing House has a green side! Our social and environmental commitment is proof of how important these aspects are in our lives and industry. Each stage of a printing project involves small concrete actions to minimize our ecological footprint and promote sustainable development. Here are a few little things that make a difference in our company.

Environmental Inks

The inks we use are eco-friendly, meaning that they contain no volatile organic compounds and heavy metals, ingredients that are very unhealthy and contribute notably to the production of smog.

Alcohol-Free Environmentally-Friendly Presses

Our equipment stock includes the Komori brand presses which have many environmental benefits: quicker start-up, decrease in unjustified expenditure of paper and savings of precious natural resources. Komori is a manufacturer that has removed volatile organic compounds from printing operations and its Komorimatic dampening system allows a savings of several litres of alcohol per year! For more information about our equipment, please see our Equipment Section.

Paper Recovery by Cascades

Each month, the printing company from Saint-Germain-de-Grantham, near Drummondville , participates in Cascades’ waste printing paper recycling program, allowing us to recover about twenty-five tons of paper monthly! This paper can be used to recreate Enviro100 TM paper, toilet paper or paper towels, all of the Cascades brand.

Mentoring

Since 2005, Line Chamberland has been a mentor at the Drummondville Economic Development Authority . Through this involvement, she can share her experience and the entrepreneurial success of the F.L. Chicoine Printing House with novice entrepreneurs.

Other Commitments

Annually, our company is proud to provide a contribution of about $25,000 to the community of the region in the form of entrepreneurial scholarships and sponsorships for minor sports. We are actively involved in the projects Science en ligne (science online) and Chaîne de réussite éducative (chain of educational success) of the Des Chênes School Board. Finally, we are also partners of the Maison des Arts (arts centre), Collège Saint-Bernard and many other Drummondville organizations.

Did you know that…?

  • … one ton of paper equals 17 mature trees?
  • … one ton of recycled paper equals 15 mature trees saved?

With 100 tons of waste paper, it is possible to make 90 tons of recycled paper! So if you multiply 25 tons by 12 months, 5,100 trees or 300 tons of paper can be saved! 

 

Whether your printing project is large or small we offer: printing of magazines, booklets, advertising brochures, catalogs, flyers, calendars, corporate stationeries, or any other product.Left Shadow BoxRight Shadow Box
