Domtar EarthChoice Ambassadors Year-End Review

Domtar’s EarthChoice Ambassadors (ECAs) had a very successful 2016, clocking more than 4,000 volunteer hours in our communities. Domtar’s ECAs organize events to promote sustainable business practices focusing on our customers, employees, company and community. With 23 teams in three countries, our ECAs contribute their time and energy to improve literacy, sustainability and health and wellness in the areas where Domtar employees live and work.

In addition, 11 EarthChoice Ambassador chapters partnered with First Book to share books with hundreds of elementary school students. Volunteers visited classrooms and read the donated books to the children. Each child took home a book. Our “Domtar Delivers Books and Smiles” video looks back on the First Book events.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our EarthChoice Ambassadors and all the work they do year over year,” said Heather Stowe, corporate social responsibility manager at Domtar and founder of the EarthChoice Ambassador Program. “This year, we doubled our volunteer hours from last year and added new chapters in Addison, Illinois; Hawesville, Kentucky; and Washington Courthouse, Ohio. I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for us.”
