Top 10 Sustainable Giveaways

Earth Day is an annual event that takes place on April 22nd to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EARTHDAY.ORG including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries.

Sustainability is close to our hearts at emc3.

We’ve been doing everything we can to make our businesses more environmentally friendly and recently co-founded an amazing initiative called ISLA. The first step in your sustainability journey should be to reduce, even
the most sustainability sourced giveaway has a negative impact if it is not going to be used and appreciated by
the recipient. Ensure that your guests have the option to opt-in or out of receiving the giveaway. Let them know what the items are and if they don’t want to receive them, they could have an option to have a donation made in their name instead to a chosen charity.

Desktop Garden

Our first pick is an awesome product that will add a touch of class and freshness to a desktop space. If this is included in a giveaway it will sure to be the favourite. It includes an aluminium corked pod with organic soil, seeds and growing instructions.

Zero Waste Kit

This kit includes a cottons ting shopping bag, a bamboo toothbrush with plant-based bristles, a handmade natural shampoo with three scents, aluminium travel tin, a bamboo cutlery set in a cotton pouch and a bamboo straw with a metal straw cleaner and coconut bristles. A very strong contender for a giveaway.

The Sprout Pencil

This pen can be replanted and grown into plants, herbs and vegetables after they’re no longer useable. Amazing right? This way you can make sustainability visible to others and inspire them to make changes too!

Recycled note pad and pen

Simple but effective. A notepad is always useful in many scenarios so this will definitely be a great filler for a giveaway. As it uses recycled paper it is a lot more sustainable than other options.

100% bamboo tote bag

Another great option as a filler, the bamboo tote bag is a great option and is 100% no other materials included.

Bamboo coffee cup

These bamboo coffee cups are made from recycled bamboo are very useable for hot drinks. A lot of people drink coffee everyday so this wouldn’t go to waste and even if it did it wouldn’t be bad for the environment, which is our goal! 

Wheat Straw Pen

These Promotional Eco pens show that your company cares for the environment whilst advertising your brand to potential clients, made from a range of materials including bamboo, PLA corn, wheat straw, carton paper, recycled paper and recycled plastic bottles this is a perfect choice for a giveaway item.

Bamboo Water Bottle

If a hot drink container wasn’t what you were looking for, hopefully this water bottle can suffice, or even both if you really want to fill that giveaway bag up! 

Wooden Keyring

A very popular item in giveaway goodie bags, the wooden keyring is a great alternative to the typical plastic tacky keyrings everyone is used too. In our opinion, this option really gives the statement that you’re trying to make a difference.

Aluminium Cup and Straw

Another option for containing beverages. If you weren’t feeling the bamboo/wooden feel for your giveaway this aluminium option serves well!
