Earth Day 2023 is approaching, and many businesses are seeking greener merchandise to promote their products and services.
Why shouldn’t they? Passing out eco-friendly products to promote your brand not only benefits our environment, but in today’s age, more and more consumers are opting for sustainable products.
If you’re looking for a place to buy sustainable, eco-friendly promotional pens you’re in the right place! PenFactory offers all kinds of sustainable promotional products, including recycled and reusable items.
Check out these eco-friendly swag items to pick up for Earth Day from PenFactory.
Reduce Plastic Waste with Metal Pens
Plastic is one of the most detrimental materials to the earth’s well-being. Roughly 40 million tons of plastic waste filled U.S. landfills in 2021 alone. At the same time, only 2 million tons were recycled, according to the World Economic Forum.
Although these numbers may seem unnerving, there are lots of ways you can reduce the amount of plastic you use and dispose of. One big way you can save plastic is by swapping plastic pens for metal ones. Not only are they stylish keepsakes, but they’re also durable and reusable. Unlike plastic pens, metal pens are made to last for much longer. If you’re looking for a practical, sophisticated alternative to those throwaway plastic pens, metal pens are the way to go. “Where can I buy pens with our logo,” you ask? PenFactory is the place for you! All of our metal pens are customizable, so you can add your logo and branding.
Save Paper with Stylus Pens
Paper is another material that is constantly being over-used at the expense of trees and forests. The next time you host or attend an event, encourage others to take notes on tablets by handing out stylus pens! A higher percentage of students and workers are more likely to take their notes on a tablet, iPad, or laptop, making the stylus pen a highly desirable product.
An environmentally-friendly option is to buy stylus pens made from sustainable materials. The Alexa Lighted Tip Pen is a dual-purpose pen that works as e a flashlight, writing tool, or a stylus. It’s made of aluminum, which is a more recyclable alternative to plastic. If you prefer a metal pen, the Concord Triple Function Copper Pen is also a great choice.
Drink From Reusable Water Bottles
If you’re not sure how to reduce plastic usage, one of the go-to ways many people start is by using reusable water bottles instead of plastic ones. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also saves your audience the hassle of having to shell out for an over-priced plastic bottle of water.
Just like all of our other products, these bottles are fully customizable, so you can add your business logo and branding. For a high-quality water bottle your audience will love, check our Yazzy Vacuum Sport Bottle. This 25 oz. stainless steel bottle is manufactured without plastic and keeps water cool for hours on end. It also has a silicone hinge attached to the lid for those who lose water caps easily. It also functions as a nifty carrying loop when the lid is screwed on.
Reuse, Recycle, Write-On!
Another great way to support more earth-friendly practices is by purchasing products made from recycled materials. Our Recycled Plunger Pen is made from recycled plastic bottles, so it’s an environmentally-friendly way to show your business’s commitment to sustainability.
This ballpoint pen is click-retractable and has an eye-catching translucent barrel design that will get more eyes on your company’s name and logo. Offering items made from recycled materials at table events is a great way to communicate your brand’s sustainability initiatives. We have even more products made from recycled materials available on our website, too!
Get Cozy with These Transportable Koozies
Save your audience money (and save the planet’s trees) by avoiding plastic cups! Stop wasting paper sleeves at cafes and restaurants and bring your own reusable cozy instead. Or, if you want to save money, just make your coffee at home and keep it warm in our tumblers.
These tumblers can keep drinks warm or cool for hours. Our Venice Stainless Steel Tumbler has a double wall and condensation-free design, so it won’t leave any wet spots on desks or cup holders. If you prefer a smaller cup, try a 12-ounce cup instead. The smaller Halcyon Tumbler/Can Cooler will work just as well for smaller drinks and is also made from stainless steel. It’s also portable with a closed lid, so you can take it with you to the park, restaurants, or on a simple walk around the block.
Keep Your Favorite Wine Cool
Earth Day is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy nature, especially on a sunny spring day. What better time to enjoy a chilled glass of wine? Of course, it’s not exactly practical to go outside with glassware. Instead, use a wine tumbler while you enjoy the great outdoors! It also makes a great employee gift as it’s something they can get great use from.
The copper insulation on this product keeps your beverage at just the right temperature. Its powder-coated finish will make your logo stand out. Wine tumblers are among the more uncommon items to see at trade shows, so having this at your table will attract more of an audience!
Pad and Paper for a Positive Impact
As great as electronic notes are, most people still prefer using a pen and paper.
Love taking notes on paper but hate the waste? Use notebooks made from recycled paper so you don’t have to worry about wasting another tree. Just be sure to recycle it once you’re done!
This custom notebook is made of wheat straw and recycled paper to promote your company while making a positive impact. With a wheat straw pen included, it’s a gift that will come in handy in meetings, classes, and anywhere else customers or employees may need to take notes.
Ditch the Plastic Bags
How many times have you seen plastic bags scattered around your neighborhood or forests by the highway? Plastic bags can end up littered around outside even by accident. Not only do they look ugly tangled in trees or in backyards, but animals may also try to eat them, leading to suffocation.
Opt for reusable shopping bags instead! Give your customers or employees a bag they can shop with, carry their laptop in, and even use at trade shows to carry from table to table! You can’t go wrong with a reusable tote bag— they’re useful for so many things!
