Renounce giveaways, not sustainability

Upon request, we donate the value of your promotional gifts to charitable causes

WTE LAusanne 23

Everyone's familiar with those little trinkets companies hand out for promotional reasons – without a thought for sustainability. But because our world needs more sustainability, you can now exchange items like pens and keychains for a cash donation to a nonprofit of your choosing.

Our eco-social merchandising approach

At Merkle, we believe the world has plenty of promotional products. That's why we've chosen to eliminate them from our event program. 

Instead, guests have the option to redirect the value of their gifts to specific charitable organizations, all at our expense.

Before every event, we meticulously choose three NGOs aligning with our global social impact strategy, which aims to:

  • Accelerate the shift towards a low-carbon, sustainable future.
  • Ensure fair treatment of those around us.
  • Foster trust and transparency to enhance the quality of life for all.

Among the partner organisations are WWF Deutschland, dentsu Kinder- und Jugendhilfe or Fondation Partage. Despite those diverse areas of focus, they share a common goal: making the world a better place. And that's exactly what we want to do as well.
