Three tips for sourcing sustainable merchandise:
1. Avoid single-use giveaway items and look for gifts that can be reused
Fill it Forward inspires individuals to participate in simple acts of giving, and to be thoughtful about their everyday choices. We believe our corporate choices matter just as much. So naturally, it’s a priority for us to be part of a professional community that cares about sourcing sustainable products. Partners such as SAGE (249558) and CommonSku, provide solutions for companies looking to make a difference by offering reusable products rather than single-use gifts.
2. Find merchandise that is backed by professional associations
Fill it Forward chooses to be part of a distributor community where the members and clients care about sustainability, our planet, and the people who live on it. It matters to them that the products they sell are made sustainably. They want to give back and inspire others to do the same. As members of associations like PPAI (792948), PPPC (20220908), and ASI (54161), our reusables gain exposure and are distributed to businesses looking to give back in meaningful ways.
In fact, as one of the PPAI Supplier of the Year 2021 award winners, we were graciously welcomed into the community and would like to thank all those who support us. We look forward to connecting with more companies who share our values and are confident we can provide them with solutions they can be proud of..
3. Look for certifications (B-Corp), Net Zero / Carbon Neutral or committed to the UNSDGs
Like Fill it Forward, many of the members of PPAI, PPPC, and ASI are certified B-Corps, so they meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and legal accountability. Together, we are making an impact by using business as a force for good.
Many members also embrace the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by committing to improve corporate social responsibility by adopting the guiding principles in human rights, labor, anti-corruption and the environment.
