Thinking Globally, Acting Sustainably

Firebrand Promotions are a Carbon Neutral company and are continuously making positive changes to give something back. We want to encourage likeminded brands to think globally and act sustainably when choosing their marketing materials. Fortunately, with our range of merchandise and knowledge, we can help our customers to achieve this. As mentioned above, customers will receive a goody bag which they can fill with sustainable merchandise while touring the event. All the giveaways that you’ll receive have eco-friendly credentials. We have also invited our partners, Climate Wise to run two Becoming Climate Wise talks during the event. The purpose of these is to give our customers an insight into the climate positive journey that Firebrand are on. We recommend attending one of these talks if you are keen to learn how you can make climate positive changes both in work and in your personal life. There is more about the Becoming Climate Wise seminars further down on this page.

The Venue

Change is something we encourage at Firebrand. We make changes when we think globally and act sustainably. Our venue for our last three events was amazing, however, to match our values, we had to find somewhere that was a better fit for our sustainability strategy and the theme of the event in general. Chessington World of Adventures ensure that none of their waste goes to landfill. Their goal is to recycle at least 50% of their waste on site. Anything that cannot be recycled is converted into energy and put into the national grid, at a site less than 25 miles away. You can read more about their recycling here.

Chessington World of Adventures are part of Merlin Entertainment, every year they take part in ‘We Care About Our Planet’ events to support their commitment to sustainability. These include collecting plastics and other waste, encouraging staff to cycle and walk to work and driving awareness about environmental initiatives amongst their staff and guests. Their Sea Life aquariums host beach cleans to clear litter and help prevent materials entangling and poisoning creatures that live on or near the beach. Find out more about Merlin Entertainment’s commitments to sustainability.

Chessington World of Adventures has been awarded with the Visit England ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry charter mark. This verifies that the Resort meets the Government and public health guidance on COVID-19 and that they have all the required health and safety processes in place to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit.

Chance To Win

Giraffe Feed

Giraffe Feed
When you register your attendance, you can opt in to be placed into our draw to win 1 of 9 Giraffe Feeds. You will be notified prior to the 22nd September if you’re a winner and we will give you a time that you need to be readily available at our event to feed the giraffes. The feed will start at 1pm after a briefing with the Chessington Zoo team. We recommend allowing 2-3 hours before or after the feed to view our merchandise and enjoy some lunch. We will close this competition two weeks before the event to help the winners organise their timings for the day. You will only be contacted by a member of the Firebrand team if you have won this prize.

Rab Downpour Eco Jacket
Perfect for the Autumn is the Rab Downpour Eco Jacket. There will be an opportunity to win one of these after the event. All you need to do is enter our LinkedIn competition by commenting on our post with a picture of your favourite product from the event. This will open on the day of the event (22nd September) and the post can be found on our company LinkedIn page. We will close it the week after on Friday 30th September. We will of course have reminders on the day, so you don’t miss your chance to enter! The winner will be chosen at random and notified via email by a member of the Firebrand team. Rab are into their third year as a Climate Neutral Company and have set an aim to be Net Zero by 2030. They operate on 100% renewable electricity in their UK owned facilities. The Rab Downpour Eco Jacket is made from 100% recycled materials.

A Gift To Everyone Who Attends On The 22nd September

As a thank you to those who attend our event on the 22nd September, we will plant 15 trees on behalf of your brand. This is counted per person not per brand. For example, if 5 people attend from one company, that means your brand gets 75 trees planted! These will be planted with the Eden Reforestation Group’s projects and they typically plant the Mangrove trees.

Mangrove trees have an average growth cycle of 25 years. Over the course of the cycle, they will absorb 308Kg of CO2 per tree or just over 12.32Kg of CO2 per year. Therefore 15 trees will be the equivalent of absorbing 4620 Kg of CO2 (3 Tonnes) over a 25-year cycle or 184.8 Kg of CO2 every year.

This gift to the planet is in partnership with Climate Wise and is separate from our tree planting with orders offer. Read more about this here.

What To Expect

A World of Merchandise 4 is the next in our series of merchandise shows and it is great to be back after the hiatus caused by Covid. The previous three events have been held at Mercedes-Benz World. However, due to our focus on the planet, we had to find a venue that had sustainability in mind and were taking responsible actions that aligned with our own values.

In this short video, there is a brief reminder of our A World of Merchandise 3 event. This was themed Going Greener and took place in April 2019. We started our Project Green in 2017 and the AWOM3 show was a great way to introduce many new sustainable products to our clients. As a business, we have come a long way since that event and we’re reaching milestones on our sustainability journey frequently. We can’t wait to showcase some of our journey at A World of Merchandise 4.

Take a look at out previous show!
