Sansin Corp. donates 100 gallons of Eco2 wood stain to town of Souris, Prince Edward Island

Published October 31, 2012
The Sansin Corp. – which focuses on wood stain products and technologies – believes very strongly in preserving and protecting Canada’s national heritage and history, the company reports.  When the company was contacted by the Town of Souris on Prince Edward Island to support its “Paint Our Town Beautiful” program, Sansin donated 100 gallons of Eco2,a zero-waste, recycled exterior wood stain.

A sub-committee of S.T.E.P. (Strategic Tourism Expansion Program), called the Main Street Improvement Committee, launched Souris’ beautification program to spruce up historical cedar shake homes and farm buildings on Main Street, which reflect the area’s farming heritage and rural nature. “We’ve had some challenges lately with a factory closing, and we wanted to rally our community together and apply the love for our community to a project that will reflect our town’s pride,” said Joeanne Roche, special events coordinator for the town of Souris.

Sansin sent two Eco2 colors – Adobe and Lava – to the town and volunteers came out on Sept. 11 to begin staining five buildings.

The town of Souris on the eastern tip of Prince Edward Island (www.sourispei.com) is the gateway to the Iles De La Madeleine Ferries. “Wood staining and preservation go hand in hand in our business,” said Sjoerd Bos, VP at Sansin. “Our company is very pleased to have helped this community’s efforts to preserve its rural heritage and the history that resides in those Main Street wood buildings.”
