Sustainable Ways for Businesses to Give Back is proud to support the Reforestation of Degraded Land by MTPL in India


Curious about how to make your company more sustainable? In today's world, businesses of all sizes are increasingly recognising the importance of sustainable practices that protect our planet and promote a healthier environment. 


At, we’re passionate about sustainability and believe in leading by example. That's why we're sharing some of our top tips on how your business can embrace sustainable practices and make a positive impact on the planet.


Reducing Food Waste


One of the most pressing environmental issues is food waste. Globally, an estimated one-third of all food produced is wasted. But how can companies take steps to reduce food waste?


Firstly, implementing better inventory management and tracking can significantly reduce waste. By closely monitoring food usage, businesses can adjust purchasing to ensure they only buy what they need.


However, we know that sometimes, food waste can be unavoidable... To mitigate this, partner with local charities and food banks to donate excess food. This not only helps those in need but also prevents good food from ending up in landfills.



At, we work closely with our local Oxford Food Hub to donate products from our hampers which are either getting close to their best-before date, or are being discontinued.


Rather than simply letting good food go to waste, we collaborate with the Oxford Food Hub to ensure these great quality items can be shared amongst those who need them most.


Sustainable Packaging


Our hampers are packaged using biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable materials instead of plastic, wherever possible. By switching to eco-friendly packaging, businesses can reduce their plastic usage and contribute to a healthier planet.


Encouraging the use of reusable items like water bottles, coffee flasks, and canvas shopping bags is another effective way to reduce plastic consumption in the office. Including these items in the office can also foster a culture of environmental consciousness among employees.


Imagine the impact of every team member using a reusable water bottle or coffee cup instead of single-use, plastic alternatives.


Carbon Offsetting


Carbon emissions from industry are a significant contributor to climate change, but businesses can play a vital role in changing this by offsetting their carbon footprint.


At, we're committed to making a difference – not just with the gifts we send, but with the projects we support. That's why every gift you send with us is 100% Carbon Neutral.


But... How did we achieve this?


By partnering with Carbon Footprint, we underwent a rigorous assessment to measure our annual carbon production. The QAS approved assessment ensured that our carbon emission calculation methodology is independently verified and fully transparent. 


This comprehensive review covered every element of our operations - from packaging to delivery logistics, warehouse facilities and even which nibbles and beverages feature in our gift hampers.


Once we understood the breakdown of our carbon footprint, we carefully considered, selected and approved projects to offset it. We made sure that the projects we chose to support are not just about helping the environment. They also provide employment, improve health and empower communities. is proud to support the Renewable Solar Power Project in India


After completing our Carbon Neutral journey, we've learnt that participating in carbon offsetting programs is a highly effective way for businesses to mitigate environmental impacts.


These programs fund specific, impactful and sustainable projects. By investing in these initiatives, companies can offset the carbon emissions they generate through their operations, neutralising their environmental footprint.


Local Suppliers

When businesses choose to source products locally, they're not only reducing their carbon footprint but also investing in the vitality of their local economy.


This practice supports local artisans, farmers and small businesses, creating a ripple effect of economic benefits within the community. The money spent on local products stays within the community, fostering economic growth and stability. It helps create and sustain jobs, promotes entrepreneurship, and encourages the development of local industries.


In addition, sourcing products locally means goods don't have to travel long distances to reach their destination. This significantly reduces carbon emissions from transportation, helping to combat climate change and air pollution.

Not to mention... Local suppliers often provide perfectly fresh products, which translates to higher quality and better taste. By sourcing locally, businesses can offer customers products at peak freshness, without the need for excessive preservatives or packaging.


At, we take pride in sourcing many of our artisanal foods and drinks from local suppliers. This commitment not only supports local businesses but also ensures that our hampers are filled with the most fresh, highest-quality foods and drinks available.
