Eco-Friendly Promotional Products – Sustainable Swag Ideas for 2021

Posted on April 02, 2021 3:30 PM

Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in sustainability and responsible sourcing awareness. In a study conducted by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI), almost half of consumers favored a company after receiving environmentally friendly promotional products. When you consider that most consumers keep promotional products for an average of 8 months, can you afford not to give out eco-friendly products? 

The popularity of these products come with good reason, but you might wonder, which promotional products qualify as “sustainable” swag? Here are our top 5 picks for eco-friendly promotional products your customers and employees will not only love but can feel good about. 

1.      Sustainable Office Supplies

Writing instruments and office supplies are some of the most popular promotional items. However, did you know 70% of the world’s paper supply comes from diminishing forests, not recycling? Using biodegradable cardboard, soy ink, and bamboo, we offer various office supplies that are popular and eco-friendly, including notebooks, pens, paper, sticky notes, and more. 

2.      Responsible Reusable Drinkware

Every day, the world uses over 1.3 billion plastic cups and over 43 million coffee cups. One of the best eco-friendly products we offer is reusable drinkware options. Here at Fully Promoted, we offer an extensive inventory of eco-friendly options when it comes to branded reusable drinkware. From plant-based cups to glass or stainless steel bottles, we can customize any eco-friendly products you are looking for. 

3.      Environmentally Friendly Lunch Accessories 

One of the most significant contributors to plastic waste comes from food containers. Takeout containers alone account for 269,000 tons of ocean waste. Much like drinkware, there are fantastic eco-friendly options that can cut down on plastic waste. Many sustainable lunch accessories are also quite popular, including bamboo utensils, stainless steel or glass lunch containers, lunch boxes and bags, and more. 

4.      Eco-Friendly Tote Bags

About 2 million plastic bags are used every minute. Our reusable tote bags are a wonderful sustainable gift because they are made from recycled material, versatile, practical, and customizable in any color. They also reduce the need to use disposable bags, a huge contributor to pollution. 

5.      Ethically Made Clothing

Organic cotton uses fewer pesticides than other fabrics and is considered a sustainable and ethical resource for making clothing. Additionally, recycled nylon is another excellent material to make sustainable clothing. These clothing items are available in a variety of colors and are a beloved promotional product. 

Sustainable swag is a fantastic and functional way of garnering new favor from your client base and attracting new customers. Any of these items will make a lasting impression on your customers. We can fully customize just about any product for you and even create eco-friendly promotional bundles for your next function.
