Eco-Friendly Promotional Gifts: Reducing Your Carbon Footprint and Boosting Brand Awareness

Are you tired of the same old promotional giveaways that end up in the landfill within days?

It's time to switch to eco-friendly promotional gifts that not only reduce carbon footprints but also boost brand awareness. In today's environmentally conscious world, consumers appreciate brands that prioritise sustainability. By choosing promotional gifts made from renewable, compostable or recycled materials, you're showing your commitment to a greener future.

A promotional branded plastic pen

Traditional promotional gifts, such as

plastic pens, keychains, and cheap trinkets, have a significant negative impact on the environment. These items are often made from non-recyclable materials and are designed for short-term use. As a result, they contribute to the growing problem of plastic pollution and waste. Plus for you as a brand, these types of gifts don't create a positive relationship with the recipient. Plastic pens and cheap promotional gift items often break very quickly. Is that the message you want your clients or staff to receive from you?

We want to help brands in the UK find memorable and eco-friendly gifts with our range of seed packets, growing kits, and Magic Dust wildflower seed mixes. If you want to know more about what Magic Dust is, read this blog post.

Promotional branded plastic bottles, one is wrapped in plastic

We know sometimes it doesn’t feel easy trying to be green. We have heard many stories of people being caught out. One person told us how they wanted to do the right thing environmentally, and ordered branded reusable water bottles for an event. It was only when they arrived that they found out that they were made in China and such low quality that they leaked. Worse still, every single one was individually wrapped in plastic!

Greenwashing is a problem for many brands, who has the time to put in the research? Well that’s where we come in. The founder of The Crop Club has a PhD in sustainable materials and takes the research and details of every product very seriously. We have done the hard work so you don’t have to.

Some suppliers are only paying lip service when it comes to being eco-friendly. They are in fact greenwashing with low quality items that they import from abroad. We make all of our products here in the UK and the majority of our components are made in the UK too, reducing mileage and of course the carbon footprint. Not to mention that our eco gifts will create a positive impact going forward when the recipient plants it.

We work with businesses, corporates and charities. Here are just of couple of examples of eco friendly promotional gifts we have made for clients.
