Note: We admit that ~30% of promotional merchandise is junk. And one of our brand promises is to do all we can to ensure that what you buy from us does not end up as brandfill – your brand in the landfill. Heck, our Account Managers know that they could get fired if they sell you banana-shaped stress relievers.
We are a company committed to sustainable branding and to that end, we are always in search of manufacturing partners that deliver products with purpose, that last that you will be proud to put your brand on. In this blog, we invited our friends at HHPLIFT to share their story. And if you read long enough, there’s a little something special for your organization.
HHPLIFT is a social enterprise located in Chicago’s East Pilsen neighborhood with a mission to forge economic independence through workforce and business opportunities for people overcoming barriers to fair wage employment.
The key? Sustainability. Both environmental and social.
While purpose is certainly becoming a trend among buyers, heightened in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and among the newest generation entering the workforce, it’s far more than just a buzzword. It’s important for both people and our planet. Products rooted in sustainability–both environmental and social–are sure to weave purpose into the fabric of your customers’ corporate cultures.
At HHPLIFT, we bring sustainability to all of our products: our in-house LIFT™ and ecoLIFT™ lines as well as brandable goods from our social enterprise partners. Our in-house lines are made by LIFT™ Program associates as a part of our career development program.
So far in 2021, 46 people overcoming barriers to fair wage employment, from organizations such as Cara, Transition2Work, and READI Chicago, have participated hands-on in the LIFT™ Workshop, producing and assembling our lines; cross-training in other parts of the business; and engaging in career development, leadership training, and educational opportunities.
Whether you’re looking for candles that come in scents perfect for any occasion, sleek new drink huggers for company get-togethers, or coasters to spice up your office décor, our brandable collections are on-trend and merge purpose with planet.
