It takes a little bit more energy and time but it’s worth it to give eco-friendly or social corporate gifts instead of the standard run-of-the-mill-drain-the-environment gifts that are the common gift fodder for many businesses.
When you’re rewarding diligent employees and respected customers with environmentally friendly or socially friendly corporate gifts, you’re also promoting a green lifestyle that demonstrates your business cares about our earth and the less advantaged people so more will naturally treasure the gift.
Of course the best type of eco gift is one where you do not in fact give anything! There are numerous such gift options now available such as Buy1GIVE1, Kiva and Change The Present.
When you use eco-friendly corporate gifts it is always fundamental to know your receiver. You’ll want to choose a gift that represents the gratitude you feel. Whether its for saying thank you for continuing in the office late to meet tight deadlines or running that extra mile to close a sales deal, your team members committed their valuable time to the better your company. So the extra effort involved to create a special eco-gift or social gift is fitting considering the reason why you want to give the gift in the first place.
More and more customers and employees treasure something that gives twice. They experience the greatest gift in knowing that a child, the environment, a school or other amazing causes have benefited because of them.
Several years ago no one would have thought that giving to a charity cause in the name of one of your customers or staff would be considered a meaningful gift. Well thankfully times have changed! Customers are seeking beyond material goods these days and are looking for new meaning in their work and life. Eco and Social gifts can be magnificent presents.
Change the Present is a charity organisation that allows you to transform our world while giving to others. Just Google them to find out more.
Buy1GIVE1 is a special Singapore based organisation that allows you as a business to give every time you sell something. This impressive concept of what they call transaction based giving is SO compelling when you know that you can share the joy of giving with your customers and staff – everyone can be involved. Again Google them to find them under Buy1GIVE1 or B1G1.
