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.
