Green has always been our colour, but moving forwrd, it means a little something different…
OUR GREEN GOALS
We are working towards eliminating unnecessary waste in our packaging. See our Holiday Sleeve story below for our first initiative.
We’re sourcing responsibly made materials that can also be disposed of conscientiously.
We are making things easier for our customers to understand how to responsibly dispose of our packaging. NEW 2023
HAPPY HOLIDAY SLEEVE
Every Christmas season, we offer a complimentary holiday wrapping paper on our gift boxes. The problem… most Canadian communities aren’t able to recycle wrapping paper!
So when we looked into just how much of an impact this choice made each holiday season we were shocked to discover that it took over 6,000 trees each year just to make our complimentary wrapping paper. Not to mention the fact that it couldn’t be recycled after it was enjoyed!
So we created the Happy Holiday Sleeve – an easy to recycle (for ALL communities) alternative. These sleeves are made of 100% recyclable paper and inks and don’t require additional tape (a whole other environmental challenge) to go on your box of chocolates.
Beautiful. Easy. And environmentally conscientious. This is our first of many new packaging initiatives to address how Rheo Thompson Candies can help take care of our planet.
“It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live.”

COMING IN 2023
We’ll be expanding our green initiatives even more!
- New packaging strategically designed to meet our Green Goals.
- Holiday Sleeves for all occasions as an eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper.
- Eliminating single-use plastic bags and providing the alternative recyclable paper bags.
Here’s a sneak peak at our new logo design – new look, same great chocolate!
