Local Roots, Local Service
At Allegra, the businesses and nonprofits in and around Barrie are the lifeblood of what we do. We know a business can only remain as strong as the community it serves. It’s a pretty simple business philosophy that helps keep this community vital.
Like you, we are local business owners who live, work and play in this community. Our commitment to the Barrie area goes beyond just doing business here.
Serving our CommunityAt Allegra Barrie, we enjoy working with different nonprofits and associations in and around our centre. Every year we team up with groups like the Barrie Baycats, David Busby Street Centre, Rotary Club of Barrie, Barrie Chamber of Commerce, Salvation Army, YMCA and many more. We understand the value of investing in and working with our community, and if you have a project that you would like to work on, we hope we get the opportunity to work with you as well.
Thinking Green. Printing Smarter.
The printing process can be resource intensive, but there are many “green practices” we can incorporate in our daily work routines to help diminish the amount of waste we generate. Here are some methods we are currently using:
- Recycling Programs – From paper to ink to money and everything in between, recycling saves. It also reduces air pollution and waste to landfills.
- Controlling Waste – By establishing inventory controls, we reduce waste and save cash. Sequencing print jobs by ink color saves ink changes and labor while eliminating waste.
- Using Resources Wisely – Incorporating recycled papers – with high levels of post-consumer content – into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills.
- Choosing “Smart” Inks – Using vegetable- or soy-based inks means less toxins and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air and soil.
- Confidentiality is also top of mind – We shred all of our paper waste to make sure your information in secure.
Local roots, local commitment, and a local business to support your work – that’s a pretty powerful combination. Talk to us today about your business or organization, and let’s see what we can build together.
