Promotional products and branded apparel consistently prove to be one of the most powerful advertising and marketing mediums there is. While we’ve discussed the statistics and fun facts that back up this proclamation in our previous blog, Promotional Products Work… Seriously, what we haven’t touched on too much, is the give-back components available with some of our favorite items. In a world where we’re all looking for ways to do more in our local communities, and ultimately, ways to simply just be better humans, we can’t think of a better way to do just that than by combining social responsibility efforts with the power of promo.
“We exist to empower people for a better future” – MiiR
MiiR is a Seattle, Washington based Certified B Corporation, which by definition, are” businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.” Miir was founded in 2010 by Bryan Pape, when a near-death skiing accident had him pondering the question, “what would people say at my funeral?” It was his recovery from that accident that led him to create the Product to Project® model for the design-forward brand Miir is today, meaning all Miir products sold help fund trackable give-back projects around the world.
From vacuum insulated travel tumblers to some of our favorite fashion-meets-functionality backpacks, not only is your brand going to look phenomenal on these durable, daily must-have items, but each item comes with it’s own individual Give Code that can be registered online, so the recipient can see exactly where their new favorite swag item is doing good in the world. If that’s not truly amplifying your image, we don’t know what is.
On February 1st, 2021, our exclusive BaseCamp supplier partner proudly donated $100,000 to Wounded Warrior Project to support their mission to honor and empower wounded warriors and their families.
BaseCamp is a brand designed for adventure-seekers and professionals alike. From durable water bottles to tactical backpacks and everything in between, the entire product line was created with the idea of a promotional product that can take you backpacking across the Himalayas, straight into the boardroom. What we love most about this brand, however, is it’s affiliation with Wounded Warrior Project, and the generous contributions each BaseCamp item sale makes towards supporting the cause behind their brand.
If you’re looking for apparel that stands out among the rest, the Basecamp® Classic Tee is one of our favorite shirts that guarantees to stand the test of time in terms of durability and longevity. The Wolverine Multi Tool is a great item if you’re looking to incentivize or reward the awesome men on your team, and you can’t go wrong when branding on one of our favorite drinkware items, the 19oz Mount Hood Stainless Water Bottle.
