Sustainability is high on the agenda for many businesses who are looking to make their operations and products greener and limit their impact on the environment.
Using eco-friendly promotional products creates a good impression for your business and shows your customers you are working towards reducing your impact on the environment. A recent study found 42% of consumers have a more favourable opinion of a company if the promotional product they received was environmentally friendly. (Global Advertising Specialities Study, 2016).
That’s why at Banner, we have introduced a new range of environmentally responsible and ethically sourced promotional merchandise from Green and Good™. The Green and Good™ range is produced from recycled, biodegradable, sustainable, organic or Fairtrade materials.
Here are our top 5 eco-friendly products for your next marketing campaign or giveaway:
1. Bamboo Fibre Travel Mug
In the UK, we use 7 million disposable coffee cups every day – that's 2.5 billion every year. Most of which are not recycled and end up in landfill. Switching to a re-useable coffee mug can prevent many of these ending up in landfill. We love these Bamboo Fibre Travel Mugs, which are made from biodegradable bamboo composite with a silicone wrap and lid.
2. Recycled Finger Grip Water Bottle
The average person in the UK, uses 150 plastic water bottles every year – that's more than 3 a week! If just 1 in 10 Brits used a refillable water bottle just once a week, we’d save around 340 million plastic bottles a year. Help your customers cut down their use of single-use plastics with these Recycled Finger Grip Water Bottles, which are made from recycled milk carton plastic and are available in 11 different colours.
3. Desktop Garden Tube
If you are looking for a promotional gift that is a little bit different then the Desktop Garden Tube will brighten up any office desk. Just add water to the recycled aluminium tube, which contains dehydrated soil and a seed ball, and watch the plant spring to life!
4. Portobello Fair trade & Organic Cotton Bag
Branded bags are an ideal giveaway for events and conferences. These Portobello Organic Cotton Bags are Fairtrade certified meaning better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms for the farmers and workers who grow the cotton.
5. Biodegradable Push Button Pen
Who doesn’t love a free pen? In fact, it was voted the UK’s most popular promotional gift in a survey conducted by the BPMA. But your branded pens don’t have to be made from plastic and there are now many different options available. Our favourite are these Biodegradable Push Button Pens made from corn starch.
