Martket is proud to be an active participant in the following initiatives supporting sustainability and recycling:
Eco Packaging Alliance
Martket is a member of the Eco Packaging Alliance committed to environmentally sustainable packaging and is an inaugural industry partner of noissue, promoting compostable, recycled and reusable packaging. Martket’s partnership with noissue also contributes to global reforestation, with trees planted for every order.
Additional eco-friendly printing and packaging initiatives:
- Martket Business Cards are 100% recycled, made from cotton t-shirts.
- Martket uses shipping labels that are certified compostable, printed on 100% recycled tree-free natural paper with compostable adhesive.
Martket maintains an eco-friendly office with EcoAction office recycling services, including in-office solutions for organics & compost, mixed container recycling, and paper & cardboard recycling.
EcoAction Recycling was started solely on a concern for our planet and a new way of doing business within the waste management sector. As a trusted local recycling company, EcoAction strives to be a part of a larger network of forward thinking businesses that put climate change and sustainability at the forefront of our business practices.
Nespresso Ecolaboration™ Recycling
One of our Martket Perks is a Nespresso Vertuo coffee station and Nespresso certified Fairtrade coffee. We chose Nespresso, a Certified BCorp, for their AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program and shared values of creating “The Positive Cup,” a commitment to delivering long-term positive impact for farmers, society and the environment.
Martket also participates in Nespresso’s capsule recycling program. Through Nespresso’s Ecolaboration™ with Canada Post, capsules are shipped to a partner where they undergo a technological process, the first of its kind in Canada, which mechanically separates the coffee grounds from the aluminium. The aluminium is repurposed into various objects and the coffee grounds are transformed into a high-quality compost, used by farms, at no additional cost to citizens or municipalities.
HP Planet Partners Recycling
Martket participates in Hewlett Packard’s closed-loop cartridge recycling process, being part of a more circular, sustainable system by recycling HP Ink and Toner supplies with HP Planet Partners, so they become new products and don’t end up in oceans or landfills.
