From Tarps to Treasures: DSV’s Journey to Sustainable Gifting

From Tarps to Treasures: DSV’s Journey to Sustainable Gifting

Who says corporate gifts can't be both stylish and sustainable? In a world where swag too often consists of impractical, cheaply made items emblazoned with a company logo—destined to be forgotten in a drawer or, worse, tossed in the trash - it's time for a change. At DSV, a leading global freight forwarding company known for managing sophisticated supply chain solutions, the commitment to sustainability goes beyond business practices; it extends into their approach to corporate gifting.

We're excited to share with you this case study of DSV, showcasing how they turned an everyday corporate gift into a powerful testament to sustainable practices and corporate integrity.

The client and project | DSV's Strategic Swag

DSV operates on a global scale, providing essential supply chain solutions to numerous companies every day. With a reputation for excellence and innovation, DSV sought to make a memorable impact at their DSV Solutions APAC Sales 2023 Conference held in Singapore. 

Their choice of swag? A custom-branded DDSG toiletry bag that not only serves a practical purpose but also carries a powerful message of sustainability.

The challenge | Addressing Budget, Logistics, and Sustainability

Organising the perfect swag for DSV's APAC Sales Conference was an exciting challenge. We aimed to create around 50 custom-branded toiletry bags that weren't just practical, but also a true reflection of DSV’s commitment to quality and sustainability.

Here's what we needed to tackle:

  • Budgeting: We worked to craft these premium bags within a $40 to $50 budget per piece, balancing cost without compromising on quality.
  • Logistics: The bags were to be delivered in bulk to Singapore, requiring precise logistical planning to ensure they arrived on time and in perfect condition.
  • Sustainability: In line with DSV’s environmental goals, selecting eco-friendly materials that matched their corporate values was crucial.

DDSG Toiletry Bag for DSV

For the APAC Sales Conference, we had the pleasure of presenting about 50 attendees with a truly unique gift: the Dòng Dòng Sài Gòn Toiletry Bag. These weren’t ordinary toiletry bags; they were a celebration of style, sustainability, and meticulous branding. Each bag was skillfully crafted from upcycled green awnings previously used at The U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. 

Transforming old awnings into elegant toiletry bags gave these materials a vibrant new life. What once shaded the streets of Vietnam now enhances the travel experience in Singapore, embodying DSV’s focus on practical sustainability and memorable, impactful gifting.
