Going green can help you make green. Surveys show 65 percent of people consider themselves at least somewhat environmentally conscious, and 64 percent say they are more likely to purchase from companies that make products that are recyclable or are made from recycled materials.
Using eco-friendly giveaways can have a positive impact on your organization. In fact, 42 percent of people (PDF) say receiving a green promotional product gives them a more favorable view of the advertiser. If you’re ready to highlight the green in your brand, use (and reuse) these ideas!
Find the “write” environmentally conscious business gifts.
Paper is the most commonly recycled product, making up about half of the recycled material in the U.S. each year. Notebooks and journals are a good place to find recycled paper and paperboard.
The Eco Design Recycled Color Spine Spiral Notebook is an easy way to highlight your commitment to the environment. The covers and pages are made from 100 percent recycled material.
Or, take your brand’s sustainability pledge a bit further with the Dew Drops Recycled Jr. Notebook & Pen. The covers and pages contain recycled material, and so does the matching pen!
You’ll also find recycled paper in the Vicenza Bound Journal Book, plus a cover made of 100 percent recycled cardboard and leather. Yes, recycled leather!
Beverages are better with reusable drinkware.
A Freedonia Group report finds U.S. demand for post-consumer, recycled-plastic grew by 6.5 percent in 2016. Eco-friendly promotional bottles and tumblers are among the growing number of recycled plastic products gaining popularity.
For example, the Insulated Auto Mug contains 30 percent recycled materials, giving your customers a way to take hot beverages on the go while helping the Earth.
The Bike Bottle helps them stay hydrated, and it is environmentally friendly. The BPA-free bottle is made with 95 percent recycled content and it’s recyclable.
Recycled bags are green to go.
Eco-friendly promotional products are getting creative, thanks to new designs and technology. The modern (and durable) Alchemy Goods Haversack Messenger is a perfect example. It’s made of 73 percent upcycled materials. The bag is constructed using inner tubes and the shoulder strap is made from automobile seatbelts.
The Tempo Sling Bag is another example. This high-style giveaway is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled PET plastic.
The Recycled Cotton Messenger bag gives a new look to the traditional cotton tote and is made from 85 percent recycled cotton.
Apparel can be sustainable, too
Because customers view eco-friendly promotional products so favorably, the range of products available is expanding. In addition to water bottles, travel tumblers and reusable totes, eco-friendly promotional clothing is becoming more common.
Outfit your team in the Charge Recycled Polyester Performance Shirt. This comfortable, business-appropriate shirt has moisture-wicking properties and is made of a combination of recycled polyester and mechanical stretch polyester. It’s available in both men’s and ladies’ styles.
Or, give clients an eco-friendly logo’d shirt like the Recycled Polyester Performance Pique Polo. Available in a variety of colors, this polo features UV-protection and moisture-wicking comfort. Best of all, it’s made from recycled polyester and polyester pique.
Choose eco-friendly promotional products for a sustainable advantage.
No matter which eco-friendly promotional products you choose, your customers will appreciate your thoughtfulness and know you’re doing your part to help the environment.
