We are committed to being part of the global movement of companies that are redefining success in business. We focus our energies on reducing our ecological footprint and increasing our social impact, by adopting an environmentally and community-conscious business model.
In our workshop
reducing our ecological footprint
- Short supply chain: the wood and steel used to make our products come from Quebec. All our suppliers* are within a radius of 100km from our workshop in Drummondville.
- Non-toxic coatings:
the steel parts are coated with resistant powder paint, without volatile organic compounds (VOC). Our eight choices of vegetable oils are natural, non-toxic and eco-responsible.
- Zero-plastic packaging:
our customers receive their products packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard and 100% recycled, recyclable and recoverable paper cellulose.
- Reusing scraps: the largest scraps of wood left from the making of our clocks and tablets are used to make our vases, while the smallest are used to make our Lumina candle holders and Christmas ornaments. The remaining chips are composted.
*The parts used for the movement of the clocks and our glass cylinder come from China. These are certified free of harmful products. Noir et Bois is constantly looking for local alternatives for these clock parts and accessories.
In our community
increasing our social impact
Noir et Bois wishes to have a positive impact in its community and thus, gives to organizations whose mission brings hope for a better world. Our donation program will be enhanced annually as our business grows.
Donation to Moisson Centre-du-Québec / Mauricie
Eating is a basic need and yet, in Quebec, 600,000 people rely on food banks every month. Each year, on Giving Tuesday, Noir et Bois will donate a portion of the proceeds generated by its annual holiday sale to Moisson Centre-du-Québec.
- Every $1 donated distributes approximately $28 worth of food.
- Every month, 26,500 people, including 7,815 children, use food aid in Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec and 600,000 people throughout Quebec.
