Ethical and Affordable Swag Items for Sustainable Branding

Businesses are making more conscious choices to make sure the products they choose to promote their brands align with corporate values, goals, and actions. Traditional swag items can sometimes be at odds with values, especially environmental, social, and (ESG) objectives. They are typically: 

  • Produced with little regard for their environmental impacts. 
  • Lack transparency about labor conditions. 
  • Made from materials that are not sustainable or ethical in their production, such as petroleum-based and non-renewable resources. 

Discover affordable, ethical promotional product alternatives available for businesses to brand responsibly, champion sustainability and support global efforts for a greener tomorrow.
