Earth Day is on April 22nd – help your employees celebrate our planet by featuring Earth Day promotions that can educate employees about the environment and offer eco-friendly alternatives to traditional products. Pollution is one of the greatest issues facing our world today – 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste has been created overall, and only 9% of plastic products are recycled.
Last year we covered some of our favorite Earth Day promotional products, and now we’ll cover other products that you can use in your Earth Day promotion or in your own office. Helping out the environment isn’t only a moral imperative – it’s great for business. Initiating a corporate social responsibility campaign builds a positive brand image that customers will readily choose. Provide the first step by giving your employees the gift of some eco-friendly promotional products.
A tote bag generates more impressions than any other promotional item, at almost 6,000 impressions per bag according to the Advertising Specialty Institute. This reusable and recyclable tote bag is an obvious choice, as it helps employees break the cycle of using plastic bags by providing them with sturdy totes for grocery shopping. The insulated bag keeps food hot or cold, perfect for traveling distances.
Eco-friendly water bottles are a terrific idea for Earth Day promotions. Reusable sports bottles also curb pollution by helping your employees stop buying single-use plastic water bottles. This 24-ounce eco-friendly water bottle is constructed with 30% recycled materials. The bottle is completely recyclable and is composed of 100% biodegradable plastic. Employees can stay hydrated, save the planet, and promote your brand!
Magnetic Pick Up Tool
Is your office located a short drive away from a local river or beach? Plan a group outing to pick up refuse and plastic, giving your employees this powerful magnetic pick up tool to assist in the cleanup efforts. The cleanup effort will make a positive impact on your community, and is a great way to build camaraderie! Don’t forget to post your Earth Day activities on social media to raise awareness for environmental issues.
Well-constructed backpacks last for years, making countless impressions as the recipient wears them to tons of events, while on hikes, or simply to and from the office. Our eco-friendly sling backpack feels like fabric but is constructed from 100% recycled PET. Sling backpacks offer multiple storage compartments while featuring an easy-wear single strap design that make them a breeze to take on-the-go.
If your team frequently attends conferences or business events then lanyards are a mainstay in the office. These often end up in the garbage after just a few uses – reduce the amount of waste your employees generate by gifting these eye-catching lanyards constructed with 100% recycled fabric. Wearing recycled lanyards at large conferences and events will create the perfect opening conversation piece to demonstrate your brand’s commitment to eco-friendly business practices.
