With global warming worsening at an alarming rate, more and more people are doing the Earth a favour by cutting down on plastics and promoting eco-friendly alternatives. And so should you! The English government decided to ban plastic straws to reduce the litter and environmental impact, starting April 2020. 5 billion straws were used there each year. Many businesses will need to rethink their options and adopt biodegradable alternatives as the EU starts to discuss equivalent measures. This ban creates opportunities for those willing to adapt promptly. Opting for these eco-friendly alternatives will widen your consumer base while ensuring top quality products. Not only so, but using green promotional products will allow you to improve brand reputation. With a more positive brand image, consumers are more likely to purchase from you.  Here are some reasons why your brand should be using and promoting custom bamboo products!

Using custom bamboo products is good for you AND the planet

Bamboo is an eco-friendly, magical-like material. It is naturally highly regenerative.  Contrarily to other woods, bamboo is harvested in 1 to 5 years after plantation. Bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than other woods and absorbs a great quantity of carbon dioxide. Thus it is a renewable, eco-friendly material. It is 100% biodegradable, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and needs no pesticides to grow. Furthermore, it prevents the soil from eroding and its leftovers enrich it. You will attract customers aware of environmental issues in no time!

Where it grows, bamboo is economically crucial. Bamboo can grow in almost every region and it could create job pools providing employment to thousands. Start manufacturing custom bamboo products, provide the world with more job opportunities!

You can sell these benefits to the consumers, attract the public’s attention and widen your consumer base. This is also an affordable material, making it highly cost-efficient and profit maximising.

You can trust custom bamboo products to be of higher quality

Bamboo is a stronger, sturdier alternative for wood. It is indeed more durable than wood thanks to its long fibre. It resists bending and damage due to water easily. With this in mind, bamboo opens up more products opportunities. Additionally, custom bamboo products make for a beautiful and elegant choice for your items. Not to mention that higher quality means a higher perceived-value for your brand. A durable product has longevity, your consumers will use the product more, and every time they do, there is a chance it increases brand recognition and brand awareness.
