April 22 is Earth Day. This year’s theme is “Climate Action,” which is very timely since much of the products we use everyday can have a negative effect on our environment. Here, at ODM, we work hard to provide clients with custom eco-friendly products for their business. Some of our favorite projects include sustainable packaging and alternatives to disposable cutlery and single-use plastic. In celebration of Earth Day 2020, we listed down some of our favorite Earth Day Promotional Items below:
Top 10 Earth Day Promotional Items
Offering green marketing gifts and using eco-friendly packaging are important steps to change consumer behavior and market trends.
Every year hundreds of thousands of plastic straws are washed away into our oceans and this could seriously damage the marine ecosystem. Restaurants and bars should make an effort in creating a cleaner environment by offering reusable straws instead of plastic ones. These metal straws make a great alternative because they are washable and reusable. They also come with a mini brush to clean the inside. If interested, quote product code ODM-2215 when contacting our team.
2. Bamboo Tumbler
More than 8 million tons of plastic are washed to the ocean each year. However, we can help minimize this number by using reusable beverage containers such as this bamboo tumbler with tea strainer. Since bamboo is a fast-growing plant, this tumbler is sustainable and eco-friendly. If you like this product, contact ODM. ODM-2588 is the product code.
3. Silicone Straws
Like metal straws, silicone straws are a great way to encourage people to opt for more eco-friendly products. What can a reusable silicone straw do for our environment? It helps in minimizing plastic trash pollution by reducing the need for plastic straws and offering an alternative that can be used over and over again. What we like about this product is the ability to be customized for brand campaigns. It comes with a brush and a capsule container to easily store the straws. Great as a corporate gift for clients or gift with purchase, this product will take your branding to a whole new level!
