With a more than ever increased awareness of the environment and the recycling of more and more material it is conceivable that you can get a “green” variation on just about any product, it now makes more sense than ever for you to align your marketing campaigns alongside this occasion, not just on the day but throughout the year with our ever-growing range of environmentally friendly products.
Take a look around you as you read this, how many items are around you that are recycled, and how many could be – Do you jot down notes on a recycled notebook with a biodegradable pen made from wheat straw, do you carry your laptop in an RPET laptop bag or do you use a bamboo travel mug for your morning coffee. Maybe you could use a bamboo cutlery set with your lunch.
Outside of your office or workspace, think about when you go shopping, where do you put your purchases – do you use an RPET foldable tote bag or if you are giving them out to your customers with their purchases perhaps you could consider switching to a sugar cane carrier bag.
There are limitless ways to show the world that you care about the planet — why not take a look at our eco-friendly range now and see how you can make a difference with your brand.
