EcoPlum Business Gifts aims to disrupt the promotional products industry and reduce the amount of plastic and other waste produced by this industry.

 Did you know?

  • Americans discard 33.6 million tons of plastic a year.
  • An estimated 28 million tons go into our landfills.
  • It takes plastic up to 1000 years to decompose.
  • Only 6.5% of discarded plastic gets recycled.
  • One hundred million tons of plastic debris float around in our oceans, kill birds and fish, and make its way into our food stream.

 We are part of the solution:

Entrepreneurs, artisans, and scientists are coming up with ingenious ways of making beautiful, durable, and useful products from recycled, upcycled, reclaimed, and previously used materials. New fabrics are made from recycled water bottles. Business card holders are crafted from reclaimed wood. Beautiful vases are remade from reclaimed liquor bottles.

The possibilities are endless to make new from old, to close the manufacturing loop, and to become a more sustainable circular economy where we reuse materials instead of creating waste. EcoPlum is at the forefront of this revolution with expertise sourcing the best sustainable products.

Gia Machlin created EcoPlum, an environmentally focused media and e-commerce company, back in 2008, after a long career in management consulting and after co-founding a healthcare software company she later sold.

EcoPlum now consists of EcoPlum Business Gifts, a line of sustainable promotional items for businesses, universities, non-profits and events, the EcoPlum Boutique sustainable e-commerce retail site, and the EcoPlum Blog.
