We introduced new procedures for assessing product life cycle when purchasing for Andgo. We committed to prioritizing purchasing local, sustainable, and ethical products first.

Some of the local vendors we supported include:

Road Coffee, Escape Sports, SaskMade Marketplace, Fable Ice Cream, Darkside Donuts, 9 mile legacy, Bill’s House of Flowers, Michelle’s Flowers, Harden & Huyse, The Bagel Shop, Prism Coffee, Hometown Diner, and more.

Andgo is open to working with other vendors who prioritize social responsibility. Feel free to reach out!

Level Up Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We conducted two DEI surveys intended to measure employee sense of inclusiveness, respect, diversity, and belonging within the organization. We also completed an internal review of DEI at Andgo to determine which areas we should focus on throughout the year.
