About us

We are leaders in ethical, sustainable and innovative promotional merchandise. A global sourcing company, established in 1996 with a background in marketing and procurement with a diverse supply chain in the UK, Europe and Asia.

We seek to be the most trusted and respected sourcing company, driving best practice in ethical, compliant and sustainable procurement practices – working with like-minded clients who care as much as we do.

From design to sourcing outstanding marketing products to support corporate re-brands, charity fundraising, conferences and events, behaviour change, trade incentives, bespoke retail campaigns, staff engagement, talent recruitment, health and wellness and lots more.

For 22+ years we have helped our clients to create bespoke, unique marketing products ensuring their brand / message and/or campaign stand out in a crowded marketplace. Focused on memorable, relevant and appropriate products in line with their brand values.

And it doesn’t stop there! We have helped our global clients to deliver on their sustainable goals, manage their product safety & compliance and buy from an ethically approved supply chain.

We love creating amazing branded products, we're passionate about “doing the right thing” with an established ethical supply chain network. Sharing insights up and down the chain to do our bit to improve workers lives around the world and take care of the planet.

In 2018 we found Work for Good – we embraced it as a more structured way to approach our charity donations; selecting charities that align with our values.

WaterAid – here in the UK there has been much focus on the plastic waste from single use water bottles and we have seen a huge increase in the numbers of clients buying our refillable water bottles to reduce this waste. We thought, what better way to celebrate this reduction in plastic waste than by supporting WaterAid. So, for every bottle we sell we will make a donation to help others access clean water and good hygiene by donating 5p per reusable water bottle we sell.

The MicroLoan Foundation – as a woman owned business, we love that this charity empowers women to earn and save their own money and provide for their family through health and education opportunities.

Cool Earth – is all about protecting our rainforests, we think their work is vital to our environment so every time we win a new platinum plus client, we will donate £25.00.

Work for Good also connected us with Plan International where we sponsor a girl’s education.
