Sustainability & Charity
Stainless steel items are all around us today in varying sizes and styles. The international stainless steel industry is also one of the biggest in the world.
This is not a surprise given the ready availability of stainless steel and its relative affordability compared with other precious metals.
With something that gets used this much, though, what happens when the stainless steel item exceeds its service life? Is stainless steel recyclable at all?
The holiday season is a time for celebration. For togetherness. For giving appreciation to one another, and for giving back to those less fortunate than ourselves.
It is also a time to reminisce upon our good deeds of the past year and welcome the new one with an open heart.
As a holiday tradition, we are once again uniting efforts with NGOs around the globe for yet another year of giving back. From providing meals to the homeless, to giving toys to children in refuge, with every product sold in December, a donation will be made which we hope will bring smiles to as many faces as possible. Discover our efforts to spread the holiday spirit globally on a local level.

Nordgreen in support of the WHO Foundation
COVID-19 has plunged us all into a global health crisis and an economic downturn. In July Nordgreen has made a $15,000 USD donation that supports the COVID 19 Solidarity Response Fund, powered by the WHO Foundation. All the funds have come directly from Nordgreen's Giving Back Programme, as part of our #neverstopgiving campaign.The mission of our Never Stop Giving short film as part of the campaign has been to fuel a desire to help those in need in parts of the world where the dangers of the pandemic are still prevalent.
We are excited to embrace a new year of collective efforts towards making the world a tiny bit better for all the people out there. Happy Holidays.
As a tradition for the holiday season, here at Nordgreen we dedicate our work towards giving back to the less fortunate ones. For a large part of children around the world, Christmas is that long-awaited magical time of the year when they get to experience the warmth and love of their families, enjoying delicious meals and finding gifts underneath a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many children out there and that is why we would like to make sure that the less privileged children in the U.S. will also get to experience the joy of Christmas.
The Social Bite Fund: Holiday Charity Campaign 2019
This holiday season, we as Nordgreen want to make the season all about giving back to less fortunate people and families. The holiday season is a special time when families come together to celebrate and have 'hygge' times, enjoy a delicious meal, and exchange presents. However, not everyone is as privileged. For some, it can be a season of loneliness, particularly for people in need.
That's why Nordgreen, in cooperation with the Social Bite Fund, a registered charity in Scotland, is hosting a campaign from December 3 - 30, 2019. Social Bite operates as a ‘social business’ working to solve social issues like hunger and homelessness.
For every customer purchase, Nordgreen and the Social Bite will donate a warm meal to a homeless person when our customers use the Discount code: SOCIALBITE upon checkout and purchase of their items.
As a symbol of appreciation for their donation towards Socialbite and to spread awareness around the topic of homelessness, they can choose one free strap from our collection or choose our limited edition Black Nylon Strap in addition to their purchase. The nylon strap will be launched exclusively for our ‘Holiday Charity Campaign 2019.’
What's more, upon purchasing their Nordgreen timepiece, our customers can still take part in our ‘Giving Back Program,' in which our customers can donate a portion of their purchase to one of our three partnering NGOs.
Our Giving Back Program
Why we give back is at the core of our identity. Our Danish values have taught us the importance of focusing our ideas and resources toward humanity and our lessening our impact on nature. Partnering with Water for Good confirms our notion that there are others in the global community that do more than provide temporary relief to those in need, they provide realistic solutions that also empower people to continue these initiatives hopefully through the next generations.
It’s not only about our watches. It’s also about helping others and saving our planet. We make it possible for our customers to participate in our giving back program by letting them choose where a portion of your purchase goes as a donation. We partnered with Cool Earth, Pratham UK, and Water for Good, to offer our customers an opportunity to get involved with our efforts. Together with our partners and customers, we provide ongoing education, health, and water solutions to areas of the world such as India, Latin America, and the Central African Republic.
Our watches are designed to be a timeless fashion piece to be shared amongst generations. We realize that while it is impossible not to create a carbon footprint, we can, however, lessen its impact by creating sustainable practices. It’s about our obligation to do some good in the world. We encourage our partners and customers to follow in our efforts.
