Sustainability



Keeping our Planet Healthy. It's in our DNA.


We believe that all parts of our operations should reflect our devotion to a greener planet, which is why we adopt a sustainable mindset each time we make a business decision. We like to give a nod to Mother Nature by making sustainability a top priority in our wall art production and frame production, and that means using materials that are eco-friendly. Locally sourced products are the first step towards more sustainable consumption.


Our posters are printed on FSC certified paper that is not only partially recycled but also manufactured locally by a mill in Quebec (Canada) that uses advanced green bio-gas technology. Our wood frames and poster hangers are exclusively made of FSC certified wood. Finally, packaging and supplies are made from post-recycled materials produced in Canada and the U.S. Keeping our forests growing and our planet healthy is important to us. After all, it’s the only one we’ve got.

Giving Back to our Planet


Our devotion does not end there. Linking sustainability with Opposite Wall does not solely imply the promotion of locally sourced goods. Since giving back is an integral part of who we are, we're proud to announce a partnership with 1% for the Planet. Each year, we commit to donating 1% of our annual proceeds to help support environmental initiatives that secure a more sustainable environment now and for the future. Specifically, our donations go towards approved non-profit organizations that focus on the issue of renewable resources and product lifecycle research, both viable areas for more climate-smart consumption.

For each purchase made with us, 1% of the sale goes towards non-profit partner organizations that share our ambition to create a healthier planet and a brighter future.

We believe that taking collective responsibility is how lasting change can come about. Help us help the planet.

Join a Global Movement


1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. It recognizes that the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet. 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions.

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, its members have given more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, a new and expanding core with hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries.

Contribute to Reforestation With One Tree Planted 


Because our business borrows from Mother Nature's precious ressources, we make it a priority to offset our paper and wood usage by contributing to reforestation initiatives. 1% of our sales go to One Tree Planted, a Non-Profit which is committed to planting one tree for every dollar donated. While One Tree Planted operates in 43 countries, we've chosen to focus on our home: Canada.
For instance, British Columbia is home to marvellous biodiversity and breathtaking landscapes. Unfortunately, it has also become the target of many insects, pests and diseases which have ravaged an important part of the tree population. This, along with other factors of climate change, has increased the region's vulnerability to wildfires as we've sadly witnessed in recent years. Since the beginning of our partnership in 2020, we're proud to say we've help plant over 9000 trees in British Columbia... And it's all thanks to customers like you!
Together with One Tree Planted, we are committed to doing our part to limit climate change to 2 degrees all while nursing our venerable forests back to health.
