We’re pleased to announce that we’ve successfully received our B Corp recertification!
Following a complex evaluation and verification process across the four areas of Governance, Workers, Environment, and Customers, we’re delighted to be re-awarded with our B Corp status.
This is a big deal for us and one of our biggest achievements to date, and we’re so happy to be able to share this with you. We were the first promotional merchandise company in the UK to gain B Corporation certification back in 2019 and we’re keen to continue redefining what success in business looks like.
Firstly what's a B Corp?
If your business has earned B Corporation status, it means you’re a leader of the global movement to help people use business as a force for good™. This community of companies includes well-known leading brands worldwide (think, Ben & Jerry’s and The Bodyshop), and we’re happy to say we’re part of a growing team of amazing brands!

What's your legacy?
Why we love being a B Corp
Being a B Corp means we’re held accountable for what we’re claiming to achieve for the planet. It’s about redefining success in business, building a more inclusive and sustainable economy, and meeting higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
Given the current environmental concerns that we face, we are all (as consumers) increasingly looking for companies to purchase from whose values align with our own, companies that are authentic and responsible and that actually live up to the claims that they make.
That’s why we love being a B Corp. It holds us accountable for achieving our goals of being as eco-friendly and sustainable (for people and the planet) as possible.
We also love being a B Corp because…
It helps us achieve our goal of Meaningful Merchandise
We love encouraging customers to make informed product choices that reduce their environmental impact.
We love working with Exceptional PeopleBeing a B Corp means giving everyone who works with us the opportunity to be the best they can be, and to do amazing things for our customers, themselves and for the community.
We want to be Carbon Net 0 by 2030. Being a B Corp means we’re part of a like-minded community.
