Paris Agreement

At Firebrand, we are playing a part in doing our bit to contribute towards the goal set in the Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement is a legally binding, international treaty on climate change. The aim of the Paris Agreement is to limit the global warming well below 2°C. Preferably to 1.5°C, compared to pre-industrial levels.

Source: United Nations.

Our partners, Climate Wise, mention on their website that “if the targets established at the Paris Agreement are not achieved, research displays that with our current emission trajectory, the global temperature will increase by 3-4°C in the following 80 years. Such warming will cause irreversible and catastrophic global environmental damage, including floods and famine for billions of people annually. Furthermore, this could cost the global economy over £480 trillion by the end of the century.”

We encourage our clients to shop reusable. When you buy reusable, you’re saving a single-use product from reaching landfill, time and time again! Reusable products also have longevity, meaning your recipient keeps your branded gift for longer and in turn this gives you a return on investment on your branded merchandise.

Many products are available with better packaging solutions. This includes compostable bags, recyclable paper boxes / pouches and more. We even have branding options available on many of our packaging options. Packaging is a great way to add the finishing touch to your branded product.

We're working on it..

It’s a work in progress... we will have more packaging solutions with sustainable attributes available as we continuously add more sustainable products to our range.

We partner with UPS for deliverables from our Leatherhead Warehouse. UPS have a Carbon Neutral Delivery offering that we can use for our clients order.

We're working on it..

Ultimately it’s our clients decision on whether they would like to have their merchandise delivered via Carbon neutral shipment. This is due to price being a factor.

Our company and employees have had their carbon footprints calculated. It has then been offset to several of Climate Wise’s projects. You can read more about these projects on our accreditations and achievements pillars. We are also working with Climate Wise to reduce our carbon footprint year on year.

Mangrove trees have an average growth cycle of 25 years. Over the course of the 25-year cycle, they will absorb 308kg of CO₂ per tree or just over 12.32kg of CO₂ per year.

Made in
the UK

Currently Available

From a carbon emissions perspective, buying UK made products often significantly reduces the mileage a product has to travel to reach its destination, and in turn, its emissions. British made merchandise also supports the UK economy and creates jobs.

Carbon Neutral
Branded Merchandise

Currently Available

The Offset Collection is a ring-fenced collection exclusive to Firebrand Promotions. The Offset Collection takes the CO2 count from a Lifetime Cycle Analysis of the products and offsets them via Gold Standard projects to make them Carbon Neutral.

We're working on it..

While The Offset Collection is a ring-fenced collection, we would like to add more products to it as an on-going process to help offset the impact of our branded merchandise. This will give our clients more choice of Carbon Neutral Branded Merchandise via Offset which in turn will help them to contribute to their own CSR goals.

Lifetime Cycle

Currently Available

A lifetime cycle analysis (LCA) was conducted on a range of our products. This helps us to provide our customers with the CO2 footprint of the merchandise that they’re interested in buying. This gives them the opportunity to make an informed decision to purchase the products with the lower impacts.

We're working on it..

A LCA hasn’t been conducted on our entire product offering. It’s available on a ring-fenced collection including stationery, bags, technology, clothing, drinkware and more. Where a LCA isn’t available on an item, we can provide alternative product options which will have a lower impact through the use of materials, it’s end of life credentials, circular economy and / or social contributions.


Currently Available

Products that support social causes for every unit sold. This includes schemes such as global reforestation projects, 1% for the planet, water.org or education schemes.

We're working on it..

There isn’t a social contribution linked to every product in our range. However, we’re seeking to work with supply partners who support causes. Where this isn’t available, our tree planting initiative helps you to give to global reforestation projects with your branded merchandise orders.


Currently Available

The circular economy is a way of creating value and prosperity. This is where a product has been designed to have a longer lifespan or making it easier to repair or remanufacture. When a product does eventually reaches its end of life, it can be recycled or repurposed and made into a new product. This helps to avoid the prospect of the material reaching landfill or ocean so in turn, it helps the environment too.

We're working on it..

Many of our key supply partners are looking at ways to produce products that are circular by design. This is a product area that we expect to continuously grow.


Currently Available

If a product cannot be repaired, reused, repurposed, or remanufactured, it may be able to be recycled. Recycling helps to avoid waste materials going to landfill. It instead breaks down the materials and finds a new life for them in a new product.

We're working on it..

Unfortunately, not all materials can be recycled. We’re challenging our supply partners to bring products to market which use recyclable materials and therefore can be recycled when they reach their end of life.


Currently Available

Using block-chain technology, we can verify the use of recycled materials and all claims made in a select range of our products. Many of our key supply partners also have certifications such as Global Recycling Standard (GRS), Recycled Claim Standard (RCS), Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and more to authenticate the claims they make about their materials.

We're working on it..

We’re challenging our key supply partners to provide us with the correct certification to authenticate their claims. Many supply partners are also looking into adding block-chain technology tracers to their products in the future.


Currently Available

Products that don’t use any materials of animal origin. Did you know, as cattle digest their food, they produce and emit methane, a potent greenhouse gas? Source: Project Drawdown. Vegan products are also animal cruelty free.

Using natural, renewable resources helps to avoid the use of virgin materials and the extraction of fossil fuels to create a raw material. An example of this is PLA which is a plastic-like material that is made with plant-based content, such as Sugar Cane. Other natural materials include Bamboo and Cork.


Currently Available

Organic materials are grown without the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers. For a product to be called Organic, it must have been certified by a third party and we work closely with our supply chain to ensure they have certification. Pesticides emit three main greenhouse gases when they are made: Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Nitrous Oxide. Source: Pesticide.org

Take Back Scheme

At Firebrand, we’re working with our supply chains to source more products that are part of a circular economy rather than linear economy. If you’re going through a re-brand and have merchandise with your old branding on it, please don’t throw it if it’s on the list below or if you know that it has recyclable credentials. If you’re unsure, please contact us and we can look into the end-of-life credentials for you.

The Honest Bottle

The bottle and lid of the Honest Bottle can be recycled in household collections, whilst Honest take responsibility for the strap by paying to get it back, ensuring that it is then sent to an appropriate recycling facility or repurposed into future straps.

When you feel that your strap has reached the end of it’s life, please send it back to Honest so that they can ensure that it is responsibly recycled. Simply send your strap in an envelope to the following address: Freepost – Honest.

Americano Range

Our Americano Coffee Cups have been a best-seller of ours for as long as we can remember! The Americano range has grown overtime. It now includes both single and double wall options, antimicrobial choices, ones with a spill proof lids or with a handle, there is even the option of using recycled or natural materials. The purpose of an Americano cup is to reduce the use of single-use coffee cups, sending less single-use plastic to landfill by using a reusable cup.
However, if you go through a re-brand or no longer require the use of your branded Americano coffee cup, do you know how to dispose of it? You can return your Americano back to the following address: Americano Recycling, Neptune House, Sycamore Trading Estate, Blackpool, FY4 3RL. However, if you want to send back your Americanos in bulk, please contact us and we will work with the supplier to arrange this. Please don’t bin your Americanos and help us to contribute to a circular economy.

Kai Jacket

After receiving the jacket back, it will be professionally cleaned, repaired if needed, and rebranded for reuse. You can’t change the past, but you can change the future. We want to thank you giving Kai a second chance and extending the useful life of the jacket.

Each Kai Jacket has a QR code printed on the inside of the jacket with free return instructions. This means whoever wears your branded Kai Jacket can return it for free. Please scan the QR code for more information on how to return the Kai Jacket.

Recycling Electrical Items

Please don’t bin your branded electricals! It’s time to stop electronics and their materials reaching landfill. At Firebrand, we’re actively looking at ways to improve the end of life of our products. We reached out to Recycle Your Electricals to find out if our branded electrical products can be recycled through their facilities. Good news, they can!

75% of all materials in electricals can be recycled and turned into anything from children’s playgrounds to lifesaving equipment. Through Recycle Your Electricals, you can find drop off locations to recycle your products or to repair, donate or sell them.

Did you know, if we recycled all our old electricals, it would cut as much CO2 as taking 1.3 million cars off the road?

Source: Recycle Your Electricals.

If you’re going through a re-brand or it’s time to upgrade your branded technology items, please make sure you recycle the old ones and refrain from putting them in the bin. Anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled! If you’re giving your branded gadgets away to your own stakeholders, please let them know that they can recycle their gift at the end of its life too.

Greenwashing shares a false impression or providing misleading information about how products have sustainable attributes when they potentially don’t. We understand that within the industry that we operate in, many of the products are still made from virgin materials with poor end of life credentials, and this is an area that we are working on and challenging our supply partners about. However, we will no longer actively promote on digital communications a product that we consider to be ‘non-sustainable’. Our website product feed will now only show products with sustainable attributes too and we aim to provide transparency on which attributes a product has. We also appreciate that due to the nature of our business, we must consider shipping and production may have a negative impact on the planet. That’s why we are making changes as stated in the roadmap above and offering our clients the option to choose a carbon neutral shipment.

We are not preaching to be perfect, but we are making positive changes to better ourselves. Our partnership with Climate Wise enables us to analyse the carbon footprint of our company and staff and then offset these onto Gold Standard projects. Climate Wise also facilitate the offsetting of The Offset Collection and our Tree Planting scheme through the Eden Reforestation Projects.

Ultimately buying branded merchandise with sustainable attributes is about informed choice, and we intend to provide this. If you want to discuss your brand’s merchandise options, please talk to our client team today.
