Sustainable Promotional Products – What are your Options?

August 23rd, 2023

In today’s fast-paced world, businesses constantly seek ways to stand out and make a lasting impression. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by aligning your brand with values that resonate with your target audience. Enter biodegradable and sustainable promotional products. We now live in a world where reducing our carbon footprint and caring for the environment is becoming the standard. Not only do sustainable promotional products offer a tangible representation of your brand’s commitment to the environment, but they also provide a myriad of benefits for your employees, customers, and overall reputation.

The Business Case for Sustainability

Choosing sustainable promotional products is more than just an environmental statement; it’s a strategic business decision. Corporate social responsibility efforts can significantly enhance a company’s image among its employees, customers, and stakeholders. A staggering 46% of consumers have a more favorable opinion of brands that offer them sustainable products. Moreover, a recent survey of over 1,000 US adults highlighted that 66% are willing to pay a premium for sustainable products.

Benefits Beyond Business – Helping the World

When businesses opt for sustainable promotional products, the positive ripple effect extends far beyond their immediate business surroundings. For example, something as simple as switching to biodegradable packing material or giving out sustainable promotional products can significantly reduce our communities overall carbon footprint. In fact, companies play a pivotal role in curbing toxic emissions and ocean pollution by reducing waste, especially from single-use plastics.

Initiatives like Zing’s 100 Million Bottle Initiative exemplify the power of sustainability. By promoting the use of reusable bottles, Zing not only reduces plastic waste but also supports ocean conservation through its donations to Oceana. Furthermore, ethical manufacturing ensures that the products are sourced and produced responsibly, aligning with both environmental and social standards.

Sustainable Promotional Product Ideas to Consider

Looking to integrate sustainability into your promotional strategy? Learn more in our latest Green Guide:

#1: Reusable Water Bottles

Reusable water bottles are a premier choice for sustainable promotional products – not only can they be used countless times, but the branded message is often in front of the customers’ faces as they take sips of water. The 16 oz. Woodtone Swiggy Bottle is an excellent choice, as it meets all FDA requirements, has a fantastic wood-like finish, is BPA-free, and can clearly showcase your brand logo. We recommend handing these out at conferences instead of countless single-use bottles to minimize waste and make a lasting impression.  

#2: Reusable Shopping Bags

Swap out disposable plastic bags for branded reusable shopping bags in retail settings or trade shows. Escape Jute Tote Bags, for example, are made from 100% natural vegetable fibers and are highly durable. Not only do they reduce plastic waste, but they also serve as a walking advertisement for your brand each time they’re used. Plus, consumers appreciate the longevity and versatility of a well-made reusable bag, enhancing their overall experience with your brand.

#3: Recycled Notebooks
