Our Responsibility: Why Promotional Product Companies Need to Take Part in the Green Movement

Updated: Feb 18, 2019

It's no secret, our planet suffers from the over production of certain products. As members of this product based industry we have a responsibility to our global community, to the consumer, to our planet and to ourselves to be aware of our impact and mitigate the risks and negative effects of our work.

We feel passionately about this.

Whenever we can, we encourage our clients to "go green and clean." We believe it is beneficial not only to the well-fare of the environment but also to the brand itself for being responsible and thoughtful. There are several ways to do this.

Considerations for your next project materials:

  • Organic

  • Recycled

  • BPA free

  • Biodegradable

  • Glass vs Plastic

  • Natural fibres

We've compiled a list of a few of our favourite eco-conscience promotional products to get your creative juices flowing.


Reusable Food Wraps

Remind your audience that you care every time they enjoy their lunch. Reusable food wraps are such a simple, low-cost and simultaneously brilliant option for a small promotional item. With us you can custom design everything from the material to colour to design and logo placement. You could even add a sweet little message or mantra. What an effective way to provide value, place your brand positively and make a positive impact?


Zero Waste Soaps

No plastic bottles, organic ingredients, no harsh chemicals, and even the opportunity to locally source. Stamp your logo on a bar of soap or solid shampoo and be associated with cleanliness (which they say is close to godliness), a great fresh smell and provide great value, function & design.


Bamboo Beard Brush

Really any bamboo grooming tools are pretty great design and function wise. They are sustainably made and don't require plastic packaging. They are simple, beautifully designed and are a fun, useful product of value.


Responsibly Made Totes

This one gets us pretty excited because the options out there are limitless and no aspect of design has been sacrificed in the name of eco-friendly(ness?). From backpacks to wallets to the traditional promo tote, we have all of the options and access you need to put together a beautiful, custom product campaign that will provide years of value and function all while looking awesome and being sustainable.


Reusable Straw Set

Plastic straws are so passé. Let us help you design a custom stainless steel straw gift kit that tells your brand's story. Show consumers you value them with a thoughtful gift and the planet with this sustainably-minded product.


There are plenty of options out there, the above list is but a few we have had recent success with. The point is, we can make a difference, and so can you. With all of the environmentally responsible options available we now have a choice and it doesn't mean breaking the bank or sacrificing design. Quite to the contrary, often recycled materials are more affordable, and organic, natural materials are more aesthetically pleasing to consumers of today than synthetic materials.

Add another layer of meaning to your meaningful merch, the "we care about our planet" layer - the best layer of all.

Get in touch today to get your own responsible promotional product campaign started.
