Sustainable corporate gifting is something that both companies and individuals want - but it’s often simplified to recycled notebooks and eco-friendly pens.

We don’t mean to insult either - notebooks & pens are tried and true classics. But if you’re looking for unique and useful sustainable products, move beyond recycled paper onto other, more interesting avenues.
