Every month we like to share a recommendation from one of our ambassadors: something that inspires them in their responsible business work. This month we spoke to Dave Carlos, Managing Director at JustOne UK, who’s talking sustainable shopping:
“I’m happy to recommend the sustainable gifting company, Social Stories Club.
Sharing, as they say, is caring, and the Social Stories Club embraces this quite literally. They thoughtfully curate ethical and sustainable gift packages with a storybook on the social and environmental impact of those products. This sparks further conversations about sustainability while encouraging further sustainable purchasing and living. Social Stories Club is sharing joy, whilst making a positive difference.
Their gift boxes are packaged beautifully using sustainable materials, filled with delicious products made by social enterprises. Gifting is a proven HR strategy and is a great way to express gratitude and say thank you. From chocolate bars investing in reforestation projects to Earl Grey tea that supports education for girls in tea growing regions, all of the products in each sustainable corporate gift box is transforming communities around the world and supporting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Since Social Stories Club’s purpose aligns with ours at JustOne to spark positive change, we give these gift boxes to our employees, suppliers, and wider stakeholders on occasions. We’ve also partnered with Social Stories Club to offer corporate discounts to our clients and partner organisations. I’d like to offer this corporate discount to Heart of the City members too, so please get in touch with my colleague Rhea for an introduction.
Next time you’re on the lookout for vendors to curate personal or corporate gifting, look no further than Social Stories Club. 10/10, recommend!”
