In 2014, we, at the Baltic Club, committed to creating stylish and green quality products. We’ve never stopped trying to find the best approach to actively protect our planet ever since.
In an effort to minimize our ecological footprint, we mostly use paper products made of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) -certified fibres. We thus help the FSC in fulfilling its missions of protecting forests and wildlife, Indigenous rights, as well as community and worker rights.
Always striving to use local material, we work closely with short distribution channel printers and suppliers, and order our paper from quality paper suppliers. Our favourite manufacturers are Rolland, a St. Jerome company making paper with 100% recycled fibres, and the Michigan-based French Paper, powered by its own fully renewable hydroelectric generators. With such green partners, we can certify that our paper products are all at least 30% recycled, and mostly 100% recycled.
Our clients from the Greater Montreal area can save on shipping fees and pick up their online order at our Mile-End flagship store. As for customers from our neighbourhood, they can opt for 48 h-bike delivery, and contribute to protecting our planet.
In accordance with our environmental mission, our 24” × 36” prints come in returnable tubes. In other words, every customer returning a tube at the store will benefit from a $4 discount. We are also transitioning to unpackaged goods, so feel free to ask for plastic-free products!
At the Baltic Club, we take pride in sustainable development-focused partnerships. Our favourite so far has been with the Word Wildlife Fund (WWF), by creating postcards, notebooks and t-shirts consistent with their mission. Working with Space for Life, a participatory movement made of the Biodôme, the Insectarium, the Botanical Garden and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, we also have the privilege to support wildlife, flora, and science.
Today, we renew our pledge to environmental sustainability and to our planet. Why don’t you join our movement?
