There are many factors that make up the Domtar difference. One of them is our EarthChoice Ambassador (ECA) program. ECA is an employee engagement program that began in 2010 to promote sustainable principles throughout the company.
Domtar volunteers in Missouri and Ontario invested hundreds of volunteer hours this spring to clean up community parks, with help from the Student Conservation Association (SCA). Participating in an SCA clean up is a great way for our colleagues to give back to the communities in which they live and work.

Like so many school districts around the country, it’s back-to-school time here in Santa Rosa, Calif. I look forward to this week every year, the excited buzz of students filling the halls and classrooms and the celebration of a new school year. But this year is a little different. With more than 800 families in our district displaced as a result of last October’s wildfires, we just won’t know until those school doors open how many students will be back this year.
