My invention would invent a company that serves the neediest of our population. This company is ethical, because it will produce school supplies with recycled materials and distribute them to schools to enable all children to study and have the equipment necessary for their academic success. As we cannot have free education and all school books cost a fortune, it will greatly help all the people who want to study. In addition, this company hires people who are in a bad situation. So, this company offers even more disadvantaged job for a better quality of life.

Hi everyone ! I'm Stéphanie and I'll do my work about Ethical enterprise. I chose Claire France because I work on it and I think it's very a good enterprise. This enterprise is ethical because we give at client what they need and not what they don't need. Claire France is very nice to work on it because it's a good enterprise where we have a good relation with customer and other employers. The logo is simple because it's just content Claire France with a nice skin. So Have a nice days :)

I decide to invent a service.  My invention is very simple. I will prepare the entire menu of the week  for the people and I will do the grocery for my clients. The only thing they will do is to prepare the dishes. They have also the chose to have a cook for them. We prepare lunch and dinner.  When the clients decide to have this service, they will have a discount for it. This service will be interesting for people who don’t have time in life or to save more time. I will offer specifically my product to family who want to save some time.

I didn't have any idea of a brand new products or services so; I prefer using a service which already exists. I'll open a bar where you’ll find the biggest varieties of Quebecer’s micro breweries. It will be filled by recycled furniture and majority of the stock will be environmentally friendly. This kind of business will help Quebec's economy and will encourage the local beer producers. It'll also offer some specialized products as the BSG beer; it is made gluten free so people with health problem can enjoy freely their drink.

I'm Noémie Parent Laperle. I am a student at Cegep du Vieux Montreal in business management. I chose this technique because it is an area that fascinates me. I always wanted to have my own company and work on my own. In addition, my parents have their own company which helped me even more to choose my future. I'd like to open a company that could be expanded through Quebec and even Canada. That is why I chose to study business management. In addition, I decided to study in Vieux Montreal, because it is the college that gives the most complete technic.

I choose Cirque du Soleil, because I think that is interesting to talk about a company who belong at Montreal. They are entertaining and have a lot of creative. Here are eight types’ characteristics that define what we are all about; acrobatic performance, acting, art forms from around the world, imaginary worlds, daring, dance, dexterity and grace. Cirque du Soleil is a special business even their website is very bright like they are.The owner of this company is famous because he is the creator of this big empire: Guy Laliberté.  Also, he became the first tourists who visit the space.

I have decided to talk about Subway Company because I believe it is an ethical business. First of all, this company import their vegetable from country that doesn’t exploit the children. Also, Subway presents a healthy menu. She encourages the people with her active life program. This program helps people to lose weight and to have healthy life and support them with a mentor/coach. Subway Company supports the young sport teams. She subsidises local team and provide them with free submarines and bottles of water during sport tournament like hockey, golf and soccer.

Encana is a Canadian company in Calgary. Encana is a leading North American energy producer that is producing natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids. I found Encana by searching on google. Then, I went on a list of the one hundred and ten most ethical companies. Encana was one of them and I found interesting that a company producing energy is ethical. I red a little about them and I was surprised how environmentally implicated they are.

 1. Three successive sentences begin with the same word. I have to reword the sentence or use a thesaurus to find a synonym.

2. Leads people:  Adjectives and noun modifiers are almost never plural in English.

3. "..." --> Consider eliminating this ellipsis. Is it really necessary?

I think you have a great idea. I am a woman and I love the way we can choose the color, style, and fabric, for the product. Your invention is really ingenious because everything is ecologic. Everybody should think like you, because it will save the future of our earth!!  I actually wait to have some of your product if the dragons choose you :)

Hi Anne,
I really like your idea. I think I'll go a lot of time if it'll exist. Showing people the local beer would be very good for Quebec!

If your product is accepted by the Dragon's, it’s sure I buy it. It’s hard to find a good and environmental product today especially in cosmetic. I hope the price of yours business isn’t expensive. Are you sure, your product is 100% vegan, because you import by the other country.

Hi pitou22 !
I believe, your idea of eco-friendly clothing is great. We need to take care of our environment and by choosing clothes that are that respond to a set of environmental and social criteria, we can help. Also, those pieces of clothing are usually expensive, so if you can find a way to reduce the price, I am pretty sure people will choose the environmental option. To resume, it is a good idea to produce in Quebec and to make people choose what they want. I hope Dragons will help you as you wish.

This time, I think I made less mistakes than my previous posts.

I like your idea! When I do my shopping for a swimsuit I look for a quality product, who resist longer and fit well. I can spend a lot of money for a good swimsuit. I did not buy swimsuit who are create by a Montreal companies because I did not currently see this in store. The most of the time the products from Montreal companies are too expensive for me. If you can sell your swimsuits for a good price, I would buy it for sure! You said your company was environmentally friendly because you doing recycling, it's a very good idea. I like it! In the post, you talk about the models. I think you can take more models in a real form and not too skinny like the fashion industry.

I corrected my mistakes with Word and Virtual writing tutor.

I forgot my capitals on Canada, Canadian, United States and Australia.

I need to search for synonyms, I tend to write ''also'' when I start a sentence. I tried to change, I used ''as well''.

Non-toxic, I wrote it without a dash : non toxic.

Wow! I never thought that the company Cascade is environmentally engaged. The stats are amazing! You take a good company to describe what is a Canadian Company engaged. Cascade didn't do green washing. They do recycle for making their product. So, you really choose a good company :)
