Earth Day is quickly approaching, and you may have noticed the uptick in articles and online conversations about all the different ways individuals can reduce their carbon footprints. With 8 million tons of plastic ending up in our oceans every year, and less than 9% of it being recycled, there’s never been a better time to get involved.
If you and your company want to participate in the movement but aren’t exactly sure how, you’re in luck: Eco-friendly promotional products imprinted with your brand are a great way to build brand awareness while also encouraging others to help the environment.
For an alternative to polluting plastic bags, hand out reusable grocery totes or foldable nylon bags. Foldable nylon bags are easy to stuff in a pocket, purse, or backpack when not filled with groceries, and larger grocery totes stored in a car trunk are always at the ready.
When providing drinks at events, consider ditching the bottled water and instead giving out reusable water bottles, which come in a variety of makes, styles, and price ranges. If you’re hosting the event, consider setting up a water station for attendees to refill their water bottles. Depending on your needs and budget, we can help you find the reusable promotional products that are right for you.
Last but certainly not least (as far as environmental impact goes) are plastic straws. Cutting these culprits is on almost everyone’s eco to-do list these days, and reusable stainless-steel straws are a great, and flashy, substitute. Bundle a stainless-steel straw, a straw cleaner, and a jute bag imprinted with your logo, and you’ve got yourself a great favor to hand out at the end of a breakfast or as a leave behind after a sales call. You can even have your company logo engraved on the straw for a highly customized giveaway.
When it comes to saving our environment, every little bit counts. Do your part by choosing promotional products that look great and help keep waste from ending up in our oceans and landfills. Your customers, and the planet, will thank you!
