Business and sustainability can absolutely co-exist.
We don’t work like most companies.
Ice River Sustainable Solutions believes that how we do business is just as important as the business we do, which is why we only team up with forward-thinking companies that share our sustainability approach. And by keeping business local, we reduce our carbon footprint. Working together with our partners, consumers and communities, we’re leading the way to a greener future.
These ethical partnerships enhance our sustainability strategy.
A state-of-the-art plastics recycling facility, Blue Mountain Plastics (BMP) Recycling is a sister company to Ice River. We buy mixed plastic bales from municipal recycling programs, then separate and sort those materials. The sorted plastic is ground into flakes, washed and purified. We end up with food grade plastic pellets that are used to create new food containers, including our 100% recycled blue and green bottles.
We create sustainable outdoor living, made from up to 100% recycled plastic. That means our furniture will never rot, splinter or crack, and can withstand all weather conditions. And because we add an automotive-grade UV stabilizer, our furniture is guaranteed to maintain its beautiful colour for years – no need for staining or painting!
Producing products that are good for people and the earth is our passion. We started our farming operation to protect our natural spring water sources by taking agricultural chemicals out of the equation.
Now we run an Ecocert, fully organic farm that grows and processes 3,500 acres of premium organic products and maple syrup, to ensure consumers have healthy options when it comes to deciding what to put on their table. We have great respect for the land, we believe that harvesting the goodness from it should come naturally.
Blue Mountain Plastics (BMP) Extrusions is a state-of-the-art film extrusion and printing facility developing eco-friendly packaging. So far, we have introduced 20% recycled content into the film we wrap around our cases of water. We’re working towards incorporating even more recycled content into our case wrap by developing new sustainable processes and technologies.
