Some promotional product ideas are a natural choice for your messaging. When an item is reusable, recipients tend to hang on to it longer, keeping the product out of the landfill so it can continue to spread your brand message. In addition, 80% of people pass along a reusable promotional product (PDF) when they are done with it. That provides even more exposure for your brand.


Replace the usual with reusable

Recipients will feel like they are doing their part to reduce waste when they use reusable items in place of disposable ones. Replace one-use coffee cups around the office with reusable mugs. The Crossland® Vacuum Mug is ideal for use in the office or on the go, eliminating the need for disposable cups. When attending trade shows or conferences, bring along reusable promotional products that can replace throw-away ones, such as straws. More than 57 million plastic straws are thrown away each day. Help eliminate that waste with the Stainless Steel Straw Set, which comes with a carrying case and a brush for cleaning.


Find the right materials

Another clean choice is to choose natural promotional products made from cotton, bamboo or cork. For team uniforms and employee apparel, items made from sustainable fabrics are comfortable and built to last. The Prestige Two-Tone Cap is made from organic cotton and has a trendy colourblock design. Made from bamboo, the Park Avenue Bamboo Performance Polo offers a comfortable fit and moisture-wicking technology. If you’re looking for something innovative and eye-catching, consider products made from cork. The Cork Base Ceramic Mug makes a stylish statement about your commitment to reducing waste.


Plan biodegradable parties

For your next big party or event, enhance the occasion with these biodegradable promotional product ideas. String colourful Balloons made from biodegradable latex to draw attention to your messaging. To keep the event top of mind, fill biodegradable bags, like the Oxo-Biodegradable Die Cut Handle Plastic Bag, with swag or literature for all attendees. It’s just the thing for carrying your logo outside of the event.


Pick practical products

Finally, reduce waste by choosing items that can be incorporated into their daily or weekly routine. Everyone has to buy food, and most do it at the grocery store. Choose a natural promotional product like this Cotton Grocery Tote that can be used again and again. For another practical option, a lunch box will get daily use and reduce the need for disposable bags. The Cutlery Lunch Box Set includes a sectioned tray and utensils for an entire meal. Another way to reduce waste is to hand out documents and literature on USB drives instead of printed pages. The Loop USB Flash Drive Keychain has a handy keychain so associates can keep important documents within reach. Consider any of these items for employee giveaways—perhaps as a gift for their first day or as wellness challenge prizes.


Make conscious promotion choices

When it comes to reducing waste, every step makes a difference. These promotional product ideas are a natural choice for your giveaway needs.
