Small Business Focused on Saving the Planet Wins Again
Newmarket, ON, October 15, 2020 – For the 5th consecutive year, Eco Guardian has won its place in Canadian Business’ Growth 500 List as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies.
Imagine a small business tucked away on Leslie St. in Newmarket with a mission of saving the planet and, in a sense, winning the battle by being one of the fastest growing companies in Canada – five years in a row. Starting out 15 years ago with a simple idea – replacing single-use plastic bags with reusable bags, in order to reduce the staggering amount of plastic bags that are polluting the planet has turned into a portfolio of environmentally friendly products. Pure Products. Clean Future.™
Is the statement that summarizes Eco Guardian’s vision. Anil Abrol, President & CEO, is humbled and delighted to see the progress of his small idea and attributes the success to his dedicated team and valued customers. “All I knew at the time, was that I wanted a cleaner planet and I thought that replacing single-use plastic bags with reusable bags would be a great start. That idea has led us to creating a portfolio of environmentally friendly foodservice and food packaging products to replace single-use plastic in the foodservice industry,” explained Abrol.
In Canada, up to 15 billion plastic bags are used every year.1 Abrol’s reusable bag idea certainly has grown since then, the company now develops, markets and sells tableware and foodservice packaging containers for take-out, delivery, grab & go, home-meal-replacement, in-room and in-flight service, food processors and retailers; that can be composted, recycled or reused. With the recent announcement of the Canadian plastics ban going into play in 2021, Canada is catching up to Eco Guardian’s vision of a cleaner planet. Abrol stated that, “Going above and beyond is what we do, it is who we are. Our focus and preference is a zero waste future, meaning that all our products go back to the earth. Making a planet that is clean for future generations – is why we do what we do. We hope to keep growing and making an impact.”
Eco Guardian hopes to continue growing as their continued growth means less single-use plastic is being used, that they say, is a win-win. www.canada.ca
