More Than A Store…

It’s that time of year when for much of the North American population, shopping begins in earnest in preparation for the Christmas season. Giving gifts in honour of Christ’s birth is a long standing tradition, but the management at Epic Roofing & Exteriors Ltd and Red Dot Restoration (Epic & Red Dot) is sensitive to the fact that wild consumerism does not honour Christ’s humble birth or his service to the poor.

Although we recycle shingles as part of our efforts to be environmentally conscious, we also want to help others in need. In order to encourage employees to shop in a way that respects the earth and enables people to escape the oppression of sex trafficking and abject poverty, our management team has started what we call “More Than a Store”, now in its second year.

For two days in December our employees will have the opportunity to shop at our main location for quality fair trade goods and products that have been sourced from companies and organizations devoted to helping skilled people in other parts of the world escape oppression and poverty.

But the company doesn’t just provide access to great products, it provides employees with an incentive!
