Promoting sustainability

Digital transition

Sharing your content online will massively help to reduce your paper consumption and make sure you are taking a more eco-friendly approach.


Share success on socials

Use social media platforms to share your sustainability achievements and accreditations with a wider audience.


Personalised campaigns

Traditional marketing methods, such as mass mailings, can generate large quantities of printed materials that may go unread or be discarded. Personalised campaigns will not only be more engaging, but reduce waste.

Avoid greenwashing

Greenwashing is a term that was coined as early as the 1980’s – meaning to exaggerate your commitment to sustainability.

Find the right balance in your messaging, it’s a good idea to focus on genuine impactful initiatives.


Collaborate for wider impact

Collaborate with influencers and charities to help spread the message of sustainability to a wider audience.


Reusable promo material

For printed promo material, like banners, it’s best to make sure it’s reusable. Remember to meticulously proofread before going to print, getting a fresh pair of eyes to look at it will help to avoid any costly mistakes and unnecessary waste.
