The December month is coming closer. The time of lights, happiness, being together and gifts. But here, sustainability is not always ahead. How often do you get or receive a gift that you really canā€™t do anything with? What does disappear somewhere on a stack or in a waste bin? Sin of course! Below we give 5 tips about sustainable and nice gifts. You can print this blog and accidently leave it at the account manager šŸ˜‰

Give ā€œNotingā€

Isnā€™t it a little bit strange not to give anything? Not if you know that you are supporting good projects from Greenpeace with this gift from ā€œNothingā€. So you give your employees or relationships a very nice gift and a good feeling. Thatā€™s better than a gift of nothing, right?

Mm, Tony Chocolonely

At the office we are all big Tony Chocolonely fans and the newest flavors are soon on our desks to taste. Besides that the chocolate is delicious, there is of course also a good story behind it. The recognition that the chocolate is unfortunately not yet 100% slave-free, but that Tony is striving to achieve that is fantastic. And did you know that you could also have the bars personalized with your own logo or slogan?

Circle round with Looped Goods

The slogan of Looped Goods is ā€œRound is our new rightā€. By that they mean the circularity of their products. They are either made from residual material or they drive towards a more sustainable lifestyle. In addition to individual products, they also put fun theme packages together. Donā€™t shop right, but round!


Greenstory was founded with the mission to make a positive impact on the world through sustainable writing articles. And what is more sustainable than an erasable notebook so you can use it over and over again? You can also have these beautiful booklets printed professionally. An ideal gift for the office!

Last but not least, Retulp

In addition to our products being for sale in various stores, we also supply promotional gifts, starting from 50 pieces. It is a sustainable way to communicate your message or logo. Besides saving disposable bottles and cups, the company also donates clean drinking water to developing countries! Thatā€™s a really nice gift to give and receive.

The contact with Retulp went very smoothly and the product was delivered super fast.”
