Sustainable Promotional Gifts – Green is the new black!

Climate change has been a hot button topic over the past few decades. The green movement is here to stay and it is our responsibility to make sure that our efforts are geared towards protecting the planet for a more sustainable future. 

The need for a greener world extends from top level management right down to one’s marketing strategy. Being part of the solution is attractive not only to our clients but our client’s clients. Our personal contribution to the cause is to ensure that we provide a wide range of bespoke and readily available sustainable promotional items which include eco-conscious gift solutions made of cork, wheat straw, bamboo and recycled paper material to reinforce a zero plastic, greener economy. 

The chance to choose naturally: 


Cork is a material that is stripped from the bark of a cork oak tree. It is considered to be eco-friendly because the cork tree is not cut down to obtain the cork, and the tree will regenerate the cork harvested from it. Cork is a natural product which has been used as a substitute for parts of these products which would usually be made from synthetic materials.


While it looks and feels like wood, bamboo is actually a type of grass. It grows incredibly fast and can reach full size in a fraction of the time it takes for a tree to grow. This makes it a highly sustainable material, which can actually be harder than oak, depending on the type and species. Bamboo has been used as a substitute for parts of these products which would usually be made from plastic or other synthetic materials.


Wheat Straw is the stalk left over after wheat grains are harvested. Traditionally it has been treated as waste, but now it can be used in combination with traditional plastic. This reduces the quantity of plastic needed to produce an item, and accelerates its biodegradability once it is eventually disposed of. These products are durable and re-usable, offering an alternative to single use plastic.


Trees are a natural and renewable resource that absorb CO 2 from the atmosphere and store carbon in wood, which can be pulped and used to manufacture paper and cardboard. Our paper is made from the wood pulp of sustainably farmed trees, and can be recycled over and over again.


Jute is a natural fibre made from the outer stem and skin of the jute plant. Harvested fibres are spun into yarn which is then used to make reusable bags and other products. The plants are easily farmed without pesticides, and grow to maturity within 6 months. The material is entirely biodegradable and compostable.


Cotton plants produce fibres which are harvested, spun into thread and then woven into fabric. Cotton fabric is soft, durable and washable. It is sustainable and biodegradable making it a more natural choice than synthetic fibres, which are often petroleum based, and made from non-renewable resources. Reusable cotton bags reduce the need for disposable plastic bags, which pollute our oceans and fill our landfills.
