Purpose-Driven Office Supplies

'Give Something Back' Donates Half of Its Profits to Nonprofits

— February 10, 2011 — Social Good
When one think of office supplies, the first thing that comes to mind is normally giant corporations. However, Give Something Back, certified by B Corporation, offers office supplies for business with a personal and social touch. But don’t be fooled by its unique business model, Give Something Back is currently California’s biggest independent offices supplier. Thus, shoppers can be ensured to get competitive prices.

Founded in 1991, Give Something Back offers a large range of office supply products and services including printing services, copy, recycled, and specialty paper, highlighters, pencils, pens, markers, binders, file folders, envelopes, mailing supplies, tape, batteries, clips, food items like coffee, janitorial supplies, furniture, file cabinets, training tables, ink, toner, and data management supplies. Give Something Back offers environmentally responsible, recyclable, recycled and biodegradable options for almost every single category of product. To boot, Give Something Back will deliver all goods in the United States for free!

Thanks to Give Something Back’s socially responsible business model, each and every year, about half of their profits are shared with nonprofit organizations working in communities. Local nonprofits are chosen by the customers who vote on which cause means the most to them. Some of the areas that the nonprofits are involved in include human services, animal welfare, environment, and the arts. About 17,000 customers and over 80 employees are involved in the voting process.

Since 1991, Give Something Back has since donated 75 percent of its net profits, which translates into about 75 times the United States corporate average, ranking them as Northern California’s largest corporate donors with over $5 million in donations. Now, that's something to get excited about.
