The Duckish Philosophy
In our opinion, if you have a business, you should try to create the greatest possible positive impact. That kind of thinking runs through everything we do, from sourcing ingredients, to the people we hire and the organizations we partner with.
For instance, we’re proud to have hired through the Halifax YWCA’s LAUNCH and Step Ahead programs, which help women experiencing barriers to employment. We’ve also hired through Nova Scotia Works’ TEAM Work Cooperative, whose mission is to facilitate inclusive employment and workplace opportunities for people in Nova Scotia.
We’ve partnered on fundraising efforts with the Halifax affiliate of Dress for Success, whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence, and with Adsum for Women and Children, who provide shelter, housing, support and other services to its clients. We’ve also donated products to The Shoebox Project, the IWK Health Centre, Western Memorial Regional Hospital and Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis.
