Eco Promotional Products (EPP) is the safe place for environmentally and socially responsible promotional merchandise. While product-driven, our company’s no.1 goal is to reduce waste and preserve the Earth’s non-renewable resources. Each item we sell is thoughtfully vetted to be part of a healthy and purposeful environment. Our products are non-toxic and made humanely, and the factories where they are made place workers’ rights at the forefront of their business and operations. EPP supports and protects diversity and inclusion by working with organizations that hire accordingly. We insist on being accessible to help promotionally brand organizations of all sizes from visionary one-person start-ups with shoestring budgets to Fortune 500 companies. Offering high-quality, affordable products is part of the EPP mission. For every invoiced order, no matter how small, we dedicate a tree planting in the name of the company or individual through Trees for the Future. With the purchase of many of our products, additional donations are made to organizations such as 1 Percent for the Planet, Wounded Warrior Foundation, Shelter to Soldier and others. EPP’s values are guided by the United Nations Global Compact, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and The Fair Labor Association.
