What Is LIOGives? 

 

nature-conservation-480985__340.jpgLanguage I/O is committed to reducing waste and supporting organizations that are sustainable; help provide education for the underserved; provide water for areas of drought and foster growth within local communities. 

As such, Language I/O has reassessed how it approaches conferences, specifically how it addresses conference swag, the conference giveaways that can be found at nearly every booth at any conference Language I/O attends. While these giveaways, which often include small, cheaply made plastic items, can help with brand recognition for participating companies, they’re often forgotten about, abandoned near the booths, or dumped in the trash before conference attendees fly home. The majority of these products are not sustainably sourced and many of them are created by people working in sweatshops. 

Due to the unsustainable nature of conference swag, Language I/O has committed to making a charitable donation to an appropriate cause for each conference that the company attends in replace of giving away swag.   

“We came around to this idea while thinking about what sort of conference swag we would offer our booth attendees at Zendesk Relate 2020 in March,” said Language I/O Co-CEO Kaarina Kvaavik. “The more we thought about it, the more we realized that rather than providing conference giveaways that will end up in landfills, we will make a difference.”

If you don’t have the opportunity to meet us at one of our conferences this spring, you can still make a difference. Sign up for a demo with us and mention that you’d like to plant a tree!
