Always ahead of the trend, Scarborough & Tweed has embraced an environmentally and socially responsible business practice over the past fifteen years it has been serving its customers. As one of the top US manufacturers of corporate gifts, they have gone to great lengths to incorporate a green alternative within their extensive line of custom goods. “Scarborough & Tweed has been committed to environmental causes for years and has been offering quality eco-friendly products that coincide with that commitment. What is nice now is that the topic is hot and clients are really on board with the message. They know that if they give an organic cotton golf shirt beautifully packaged with a recycled memo journal and placed in a bag made from recycled sail cloth, they are not only giving a client a gift but they are also making a statement about how important their company thinks environmental issues are,” said Scarborough & Tweed President Lisa McCullagh. “The fact that some suppliers are now following our lead and offering eco-friendly alternatives for corporate gifts means that you can now make an environmental statement without having to spend so much more for the products,” McCullagh added.

Scarborough & Tweed is world-renowned for its superior service and high quality products. It caters to many of the world’s top financial and commercial companies. Their custom bags have become a staple in the corporate world. Recognizing the magnitude of the environmental crisis our planet faces, Scarborough & Tweed researched and developed a clear management initiative to make sure they are meeting the needs of the environment both now and for the future. Most of the waste cotton from their apparel supply and old scrap canvas used in their bag manufacturing process, is sent to a companies that make recycled products out of cotton. This ensures that this material does not end up in landfills but is reused and renewed. Their practice as a firm and what they ask of their supply chain is to utilize shipping and packaging material that has a low environmental impact or has been recycled. Scarborough & Tweed is committed to responsibly managing all of their resources for the benefit of present and future generations and have been successful in bringing their key suppliers on board for this initiative. Years of travel, testing and creative thinking have lead to this inspiring result.

Employees of Scarborough & Tweed (www. scarboroughtweed. com) have been trained in offering green product options to the many clients they service each day. Their bags can be made using organic canvas and they offer a line of apparel made of recycled materials along with the other environmentally sound products they can provide such as notebooks and desk pads, etc. A new section to their website has been added that highlights “Environmentally Friendly Products” and has been a huge success with their clientele.

“Companies no longer look at green gift alternatives as a fad or trend” said McCullagh. “Eco-friendly gifts and promotions have become an integrated part of our client’s marketing strategy.”
