Recycling and our Environment
Artisan currently has an aggressive recycling and waste reclamation program, partnering with a Recycling Organization that collects all material and production waste from our facilities. We are able to provide reports to support that of our own material and production waste and are able to account for 97% landfill diversion through recycling and reclamation processes with our partner.
We have increased our digital print department, which decreases our material set up waste. Artisan Complete Limited will always direct clients to sustainable and recyclable materials when possible. We have recycled over 200,000 lbs of plastics and 730 metric tons (1,606,000 lbs) of paper and cardboard in 2015.
This year, in 2016, Artisan Complete Limited will be installing waste material balers to reduce trucking and we will continue to improve our recycling program as well. We continuously work with our vendor partners and substrate manufacturers to produce higher grades of materials which then reduces our waste percentage.
VOLUNTEERISM AND FUNDRAISING
Many members of the Artisan Complete team are involved in various charities in one way or another - whether it be a personal connection or through volunteerism, bake sales, toy/food drives or other events. We all participate to support our team and our community through fundraising efforts, raising thousands of dollars each year for such charities as the Unionville Alliance Church, Muscular Dystrophy, Cancer, Alzheimer's Research and most recently, the terrible Fires of Fort McMurray.
