Celebrating B Corp Month: Merch that Goes Beyond

Eco-friendly branded merchandise for a positive brand impact

Every March, purposeful businesses the world over come together to celebrate B Corp Month, standing up to raise awareness of a better way to do business. We’re highlighting some of our favourite promotional products from B Corps dedicated to making a positive impact. 

What is a B Corp?

The B Corp movement aims to change our economic system from the traditional ‘shareholder first’ model to one that considers all stakeholders as equals. Being a B Corp isn’t at odds with profitability, however, instead balancing profit with purpose.

Certified B Corporations, also known as B Corps, are companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.  To confirm this, each B Corp goes through a strict auditing process conducted by B Lab, a non-profit network transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. 

B Corps make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders.

To date, there are over 6,000 B Corps globally, with around 1,200 of these in the UK. In fact, there are more than 500 in London alone, making it the B Corp capital of the world.

Can I get B Corp Merch for my Business?

Yes! Not only are we a B Corp ourselves, we also source promotional products from companies committed to ‘B’ the change. We work closely with a selection of B Corps to offer merchandise that makes a positive impact. Here’s a few highlights…

KeepCup 12oz Brew Cork

Inspiring the world to reduce and reuse, KeepCup has become synonymous with on-the-go drinkware, their stylish travel cups easily spotted from afar. Their Brew Cup is the world’s first barista-standard reusable cup, made from a toughened soda-lime glass with a sustainably harvested cork band using wine cork production waste.

Innovations like these have seen KeepCup awarded B Lab’s ‘Best For The World: Environment’ Status for B Corps in 2022. With planet-friendly practices and environmental initiatives, these companies are taking bold action to preserve our most precious resources.

KeepCup is also 1% For The Planet member, committing 1% of all sales revenue to protect the environment.

agood company Phone Case

They go everywhere with us, so for many of us, protecting our phones is an absolute must. Every year over 1 billion plastic phone cases are produced using fossil fuels. And since they are often disposed of improperly, these can remain in the environment for hundreds of years.

Enter agood company. Supporting all major smartphones with a range of colours and patterns, they’ve got even the most extravagant tastes covered. Mor importantly, the agood phone case is plant-based and home compostable, made from 100% linseed. Composting not your thing? Return your old case to them and they’ll recycle it into a new one.

In the interest of going beyond, each phone case the B corp sells contributes directly to Malala Fund, helping provide education to young girls who would otherwise be denied one due to their gender.


Sprout Pencil

One of our favourite B Corp products for introducing and inspiring sustainable growth, the Sprout pencil is a fantastic brandable pencil for employee engagement, marketing promotions, and conferences.

Made from natural wood from certified responsible sources, Sprout Pencil is the world’s only plantable pencil. The topper comes filled with your choice of seeds, so by planting the stub after use, you can grow a range of plants, from bee-friendly wildflowers to mighty sunflowers.

Engrave with a message to create a story about everyday sustainability.

Memobottle A6

With a practical shape based on international paper sizes, the memobottle is easy to carry, pack, or pocket. This A6 model has a minimal profile making it a perfect companion for everyday adventures. Its lightweight but sturdy construction will handle whatever you throw at it.

The A6 Memobottle features an award-winning lay flat design. Aesthetically and ergonomically pleasing, drinking from it is an elegant experience that reminds us of a metal hip-flask.

Its not only your drinking experience that memobottle want to change, however. With every memobottle sold, they provide one person with clean water for two months in partnership with water.org, so far providing over 22.3 million days of safe water for people in need.

Ocean Bottle

The Ocean Bottle needs little introduction. Created to tackle the ocean plastic problem, this reusable bottle helps you do away with single use bottles, and its production reuses materials responsibly. A 90% recycled stainless steel body is coupled with a BPA-free plastic top and recycled plastic bottom plate.

The real magic, however, happens beyond the bottle. Each bottle purchased helps end the flow of plastic into the ocean, funding the collection of 11.4kg of plastic waste in some of the world’s most affected areas.

Through their partnership with Plastic Bank, Ocean Bottle are helping create long-term recycling infrastructure and social mobility, with 372 communities in locations like Brazil, Ghana, and Indonesia are currently benefitting.
