Two things we’re passionate about: summer and sustainability.
It’s summer! Time to get outside, embrace nature, and have fun!
It’s also time to reflect on the importance of keeping an eco-friendly and sustainable mindset while reminding your customers about your values.
A growing consensus surrounds the importance of being environmentally conscious. That means there’s potential for a strong connection with your customers if being green is a component of your—and their—brand values. When it comes to promotional products, the enthusiasm for eco-friendly products is real!
More and more, discerning customers want to know that the design, sourcing, and manufacturing of a product are good for the environment. Plus, making the switch is easy with Eagle Print Dynamics. We have an eco-friendly alternative for nearly every product and category imaginable.
In this article, we’ll look at some of the latest and greatest products for summertime, whether you’re at the beach, park, or campsite—products to boost your client’s brand visibility and contribute to a greener planet.
Lay it Down!
If you’re hitting the beach or park for a picnic—a summertime staple—you’ll need a sturdy blanket. The Field & Co. Recycled Oversized Picnic Blanket is fully packable. Plus, the front pocket displays a logo and is perfect for carrying small items like keys, phones, and more. And it’s made from PET, a type of clear, strong, lightweight, and 100% recyclable plastic.
For individual seating options—and drying off, of course—check out this Cotton Terry Velour Beach Towel. Made of 70% recycled cotton and 30% recycled polyester, it scores major green points.
