We’ve definitely come a long way from living in caves and using sticks to create fire. With all our innovation, though, there have also been some environmental consequences that are difficult to ignore. Among these concerns is pollution in the air, litter in the oceans, and a crazy 1,609 pounds of waste per person every year!

Every little thing we do now can make a difference in the long run. If you’re a business owner, you can do your part by advertising with eco-friendly promotional products. These giveaways will be a huge hit at trade shows, conventions, and other promotional events, and you’ll feel good knowing you’re making a difference.

Note to Self

Not only can you advertise with eco-friendly promo items, but you can also use them as employee gifts. Your entire team will love something useful like trendy notebooks.

As the name suggests, the Recycled Pocket Notebook is made from recycled paper. The small, compact size fits perfectly in any bag, so you can bring it along to work meetings and networking events without any hassle. You can also use it for doodles if your head honcho’s presentation is less than inspiring.

Save the Trees

Do you remember etching your crush’s initials into a tree as a kid? Flip that special memory on its head with a pen made from bark!

The Wooden Twig Pen is produced from wood that originates from a sustainable tree farm. These trees are produced specifically for commercial use, which reduces deforestation and the need to cut down old trees in other areas. Let’s see a traditional plastic pen do that!

A Toteally Green World

The nature of a tote bag is to help reduce the plastic bags that clog up landfills. The Jumbo Nonwoven Grocery Tote has the added bonus of also being made from scraps leftover from production.

This is a giveaway that makes it easy for potential clients to go green. Bring it along to your next trade show for visitors to store all their goodies from other booths. After the event, they’ll reuse their bag again and again when it comes to grocery shopping, trips to the park, and so much more. It’s a way better choice than all those harmful plastic bags!

At the end of the day, eco-friendly promo products are a step in the right direction when it comes to a cleaner planet. If you’re feeling inspired by all this greenness, plant a few plants, get a reusable water bottle or two, and continue living the eco-friendly lifestyle!

Not really digging eco-friendly products? Try promoting your brand with any of these other trendy favorites. It’s about time you went for a new look!
