WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - Many businesses have adopted "green" initiatives to help reduce landfill waste and conserve energy. Environmentally-conscious companies can look to EmbroidMe for eco-friendly customized promotional products and apparel. Certain items in EmbroidMe's wide selection are labeled as green by the manufacturer, enabling companies to advance their green campaigns into more areas of operation.
The upcoming anniversary of Earth Day is an ideal backdrop to initiate an eco-friendly statement that reminds employees and customers of the importance of protecting and preserving the environment, and encouraging the use of products made from recycled or sustainable products. Daily use items, like pens made of post-consumer recycled paper with plastic derived from corn or pad covers made of recycled PET (PolyEthylene Terephtalate) and note pads made from recycled paper can be integrated without substantial effort. Golf balls made of 100% recycled tire rubber, LED flashlights with rechargeable batteries or calendars made of recycled paper are useful customized promotional products.
Consumers appreciate items such as reusable grocery shopping totes, biodegradable bags for picking up after the dog and items from renewable resources, like bamboo cutting boards or drink coasters. Logoed items are a constant reminder of your company and support of the cause.
Eco-friendly customized apparel can span the range from work attire to everyday casual wear. Businesses requiring staff uniforms can support the initiative internally or use other types of apparel as giveaways. A green message can be displayed on the apparel along with the company logo. Eco-friendly shirts can be made of organic cotton, partially recycled cotton, post-consumer PET and recycled polyester. Customization will support the theme when items are embroidered with cotton thread or imprinted with vegetable-based inks.
"Whether you are distributing individual items or sending large case quantities, your packaging should be eco-friendly, as well. Corrugated shipping cartons are reusable and recyclable," said Christine Marion, MAS, director of retail operations for EmbroidMe. "Our experienced staff and Eco Awareness Programs stand ready to assist you."
