Reuse. Refill. Recycle. 5 simple, stunning and sustainable promotional gifts

Posted: 25th October 2019

Are you an environmentally friendly brand looking for great eco promotional product ideas for staff, events or marketing campaigns?

If the answer is yes, then this article is for you.

We’ve put together a list of our 5 most sought-after eco-friendly products, to help you promote your brand without sacrificing your environmental values.

Bamboo cups

We’re waving the flag of the reuse revolution. The more useful and durable a product is – the more frequently it will be reused – the less impact on the environment there will be – and the more often your brand will be seen.

These fully customisable bamboo coffee cups provide genuine value to the receiver day-to-day and don’t get thrown in the cupboard, never to resurface. No plastic here – they’re made using sustainable and recyclable bamboo-fibre – so they’re a fantastic choice if you’re looking to make a bold ethical statement. Available in a wide range of colours, finishes, sizes and styles as well as branded presentation boxes.

Tote bags

These stylish and durable branded cotton tote bags will become a travel-to-work and shopping day staple. Another high quality, eco-friendly product people can use time and time again – putting an end to single use plastic bags and ensuring wearers will be carrying your company logo everywhere they go.

An easy-way to increase exposure and send a positive message.

Thermal bottles

Promotional drinkware products – like these impressive personalised stainless steel water bottles – are a must-have accessory at the moment. They’ll keep drinks cool for 24 hours or hot for 12.

The average consumer uses an average of 150 plastic bottles a year. So, providing reusable and sustainable drinkware is a practical way for brands to create a significant reduction in plastic use and promote an eco-friendly culture.

Made from premium grade stainless steel, these leak-free, personalised thermal water bottles come with a matt or gloss finish and a wide range of colours, with Pantone matching for your exact brand colour also possible from 500 pieces. With screen printing and laser engraving both available, tailor yours to match your brand’s unique image and personality.

Recycled Stationery

Technology is constantly progressing, but you can’t beat the old-fashioned pen and pencil for sketching out ideas and taking notes. This explains why stationery is still one of the most popular promotional items.

However, traditional biros, pencils and notebook are often made from plastic and unsustainable resources- not so eco-friendly. We love to find interesting alternative materials, like a branded pencil made from recycled money or a notebook made from recycled coffee cups. A perfect choice for eco-conscious brands since its production has minimal environmental impact.

We‘ve created a full-range of customisable eco-friendly stationery options that also includes notebooks, diaries and sticky notepads. All made from recycled resources.

Bamboo Sunglasses

Looking for personalised corporate gifts that offer style and substance? Boost brand awareness with these branded bamboo sunglasses.

As the legs are made from sustainable bamboo fibre, the production process uses much less plastic than traditional manufacturing methods. They offer brands a stylish way to reduce their environmental impact and make a fashion statement.

Light weight, good looking UV protection for bright brands.
