Earth Day 2017 – 3 Trends To Green Your Brand Image

As we move into the celebrations of the 47th Earth Day, it’s a great time to reflect on the ways that our thinking has changed since 1970. And it’s a good time to look at ways you can improve the earth-impact of your company with some smart promotional choices.

Banning the bag

A number of municipalities and cities are moving to ban the plastic checkout bags and still others are introducing legislation to charge for them. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.* are just some of the cities trying to limit their reliance on plastic bags. And while not every city is trying to cut plastic bag use, you can certainly see reusable shopping bags everywhere – making them a great opportunity to promote your business. We have a wide variety of totes available to match your budget and share your brand.

Taming our thirst for disposable bottles

For the first time ever, bottled water is expected to outsell soda in 2017*. That’s great news for our health, but it’s not especially great for our efforts to reduce the amount of plastic in our landfills. That fact has driven a growing number of cities to ban the use of single-use plastic bottles.

In 2013, Concord, Massachusetts became one of the first communities in the U.S. to ban the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles. Not long after, San Francisco introduced a ban on the sale of single-use plastic water bottles on city-owned property, and will be extended to include events held outdoors on public property. Also, dozens of universities and national park sites have also banned plastic bottles.

Brown bagging it – without the brown bag

Occasionally something that’s considered to be simply a smart practice really comes into vogue. And one of the most popular ‘simply smart ideas’ these days is bringing your lunch to work. Nutritionists love this idea because it’s the easiest way to eat smart throughout the workday. Economists love it because bringing your lunch to work is a simple way to save money. And the earth loves when you bring your lunch to work in reusable containers because it eliminates paper and plastic waste and cuts down on food waste.

The innovative Artic Zone® Ice Wall Lunch Cooler features four removable ice packs that slide into the walls of the cooler, making it perfect for lunch on the go where there might not be a refrigerator.

Is your business in need of the perfect travel promotional gift to give to customers, patrons, clients or employees?  Enter, the custom logo branded selfie stick!

How they work is you simply mount your iPhone, Samsung or Android smart phone onto the top of the selfie stick (the phone is locked in securely).  Then you plug into the input piece into your phone’s headphone jack.  The stick itself can telescope out to around 3 feet (35.5 inches).  There is a button on the stick that you press to activate the photo shutter on your phone.  And voila!  You have your best selfie ever.

A custom one-color logo imprint is branded on the back of the phone holder at a size of up to 1.50″ H x 1.00″ W.  Customized selfie sticks are a trendy, modern business gift idea for use as trade show giveaways, travel related premiums, business gifts, promotions, incentives and more.  Click here for additional product information.
