Sustainable Corporate Gifts

Sustainable Corporate Christmas Gifts are a great way to get your company into the spirit of giving. Giving out ethical gift hampers can encourage employees to think more sustainably, as well as protect the environment. Sustainable corporate Christmas gifts are also ideal for any company that wants to show its staff that they care. Giving a sustainable employee gift hamper communicates that your company cares about communities as well as their staff.

 There are many different ways to give sustainable corporate gifts. You can give them to employees, customers, or even volunteers at your organisation. You are inspiring the receivers of the social enterprise hampers to make environmentally friendly choices when they shop as the packaging is all sustainable. Another benefit of sustainable corporate gifts is that they can be a morale booster for employees. People love receiving gifts, and if you choose wisely you can give them something they want that also inspires them. You can even out your brand front and centre with our branded corporate hampers.

Environmentally Friendly Gifts 

We wish to encourage people to become a part of the solution to social issues by shopping at social enterprises like Social Stories Club. We hope to spread the word through our ethical Christmas hampers about how these companies have a positive effect on societies- and that is what we do at Social Stories Club! Every item in our box is linked to a positive social or environmental impact, from chocolate that supports global reforestation to Earl Grey tea that helps educate Indian girls. We also are trying to make the most sustainable Christmas hampers that have as little impact on the environment as possible. As a result, in 2021, all of our deliveries were declared carbon neutral. Whenever we send one of our eco-friendly boxes, we will compensate for the carbon emissions by protecting 17,601.50 km2 of forest. In addition to reducing 42 tons of CO2 emissions and planting 1,100 trees, your purchases have helped save an area of forest the size of 17,601.50 km2.
