We are seeing more and more companies that want only eco-friendly swag to offer their employees and clients. If you are looking for the best-branded swag, but with a sustainable message, you came to the right place! Our team of Swagstronauts have put together our favorite high quality branded eco swag. 

Although we suggest that your company make an effort to offer eco-branded swag, there’s more to the picture than just swag. Here are some other ways you can make efforts in other areas to be sustainable:

  • Participate in organizations such as One Tree Planted 
  • If you have office spaces, replace buying bottled water for water fountains & water bottles 
  • Reduce traveling, and when you do, use organizations like Gold Standard to help offset your carbon footprint 
  • Get employees involved in local organizations that volunteer with ocean clean up or help plant trees 
  • Don’t buy branded swag that is wasteful and cheap! Stick to high-quality items.
