NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Snappy, the all-in-one gifting platform, has launched a new Sustainable Gifting Program featuring carefully curated gifts that focus on environmental stewardship. The Sustainability collection is handpicked by Snappy gifting experts to help organizations show appreciation for employees and customers while offering ways to help reduce their carbon footprint and positively impact the world.
As more organizations pursue ESG (environmental and social governance) initiatives, demand for sustainably sourced goods has increased significantly. The Sustainability Collection features an ever-changing catalog of approximately 200 gifts from brands committed to sustainable practices – from headphones, earbuds, and Bluetooth speakers to travel gear and skincare essentials. Additionally, dozens of products come from women-owned businesses and BIPOC-owned businesses.
Each gift is sent through a personalized gift experience that allows recipients to choose the best gift for them. Providing this ‘gift of choice’ further reduces the production of unwanted items and helps eliminate the carbon impact of unnecessary shipping with our historical return rate close to 1% vs. an average of more than 20% for U.S. online retail sales (National Retail Federation 2022).
"Giving back to others and the planet is near and dear to our hearts at Snappy," said Hani Goldstein, CEO and co-founder of Snappy. "Our Sustainable Gifting efforts are designed to help our customers show appreciation while helping them on their own sustainability journeys. We're proud to feature options ranging from pillowcase sets made from 100% biodegradable bamboo fibers to supporting tree planting initiatives in the developing world!"
The Sustainability Gifting Program is just one element of Snappy’s broader Giving Back program. Through a partnership with ForestNation, Snappy customers have helped plant over 56,000 trees, thereby absorbing nearly 1,400+ tons of CO2 yearly. Snappy has also pledged $500,000 per year via philanthropy and volunteering, including an Earth Day volunteer program where Snappy employees will meet in 5 locations across the country to clean up parks, marshes, and beaches.
Snappy also supports diversity and inclusion through its Rising Voices Collection, which includes more than 700 products selected from Asian American-owned, B Corp, Black-owned, charitable giving, family business, female-owned, Indigenous-owned, Latinx-owned, LGBTQ-owned, small business, sustainable and veteran-owned businesses.
A preview of Snappy’s sustainable gift options can be found in the Snappy Sustainable Gift guide.
