Greensleeve Insulated Beverage Holder

10 Apr

Be Cool or Stay Hot. EcoFriendly – Love your Mother. ErgoFriendly – Get a grip. Reusable-Recyclable-Biodegradable. Inked with water colors.

The Spring festival season is right around the corner. Perfect time to talk about an alternative to neoprene beverage holders. The Greensleeve Insulated Beverage Holder is a USA Made cardboard coolie that Valley Castings likes to say is, “Made in America by Americans with American Garbage”.

These Recycled Insulated Beverage Holders are made from 69% post consumer waste, and printed with an earth friendly water based ink. They cost as low as $0.49 per unit, and that unit price includes a one color – one location imprint. The imprint size is 1.5″ x 1.5″.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.

Remember Me Green

30 Mar

Recycled from NY Signage.

Remember Me Green is turning New York City billboards into some great looking bags.

“New York is a city with a vibrant energy, and with our billboard products you get to add your unique vibe to it. A diversity of people contribute to NYC’s lifeforce, and RMG has kept that in mind. We’ve created a product line that speak to people who don’t want to just carry a bag, they want to carry a message.

Green fashion is our priority here at RMG. You can rock some eco-friendly accessories with our re-purposed vinyl bags, made from billboards found throughout New York City. Billboards are made of a large amount of vinyl that would normally just be tossed away. By carrying one of our bags, you play a role in the solution to pollution all while looking fabulous.

Every item we create is one-of-a kind, every piece has its own heartbeat. For the gal on the go we’ve got billboard bags available in versatile styles and sizes. If you’re headed out for a wine night, there’s our line of upcycled wine bags. Or if you like to garden at home, you can grow green with our line of re-purposed garden bags. We believe in individuality, green fashion, and style.”

This is an idea that can be done for any city, sport center, or university, that wishes to turn their used banners and signage into promotional items. The idea has been around for nearly a decade now, so if you are a visitor’s center or tourist board looking for a great ideas, give a ring to discuss second life promotional billboard bags.

Econscious Organic Cotton/Recycled Polyester Apron

28 Mar

Yep, that’s an apron.

Got a farm-to-table theme restaurant, city gardening club, or organic food truck. Well, Econscious has got your uniform aprons.

The Econscious Organic 8 oz. Cotton/Recycled Polyester Apron, comes in three colors – black, navy, and oyster – and is made of 55% certified organic cotton and 45% recycled polyester. There are also two  brass riveted front pockets, to make the work day a bit easier.

The nature of an apron, the large, single section of cloth, allows for an equally large imprint area. The Econscious Organic 8 oz. Cotton/Recycled Polyester Apron can easily be embroidered, or take advantage of all that room for a large screen-printing of your artwork and logo.

At the 8 oz. weight, these aprons will be able to stand up to the daily grind. (Did we for get to mention these are great for coffee shops.)

That’s about it. Aprons are pretty basic. What more is there to say?

BioAd™ Trekker Travel Mug

26 Mar

Multicolored imprints no problem.

The Quickpoint website has a new look, and it looks like some new designs as well.

I like it 🙂

Take for example the BioAd™ Trekker Travel Mug. Much more retail design than past mug shapes, but still made in the USA. And, as a BioAd™ product the BioAd™ Trekker Travel will break down naturally in a landfill environment over a period of 3-5 years. (not the side of the road, not your break-room, but a proper landfill environment.)

So Quickpoint is continuing their commitment to both biodegradable and USA made items.

The BioAd™ Trekker Travel Mug comes in seven great colors (White, Black, Thunderbolt Blue, Sky Blue, Sage Green, and Red). It is fine for both hot and cold liquids, with a 24 .oz capacity.

Like the BioAd™ Trekker Travel Mug  as an idea for anything from thank gifts for community clean up projects, to trade-show giveaways for the recycling or waste management industries. Plus, they look pretty cool.

And, sometime else to keep in mind, the BioAd™ Trekker Travel Mug is lighter to ship, and less breakable, than traditional ceramic coffee mugs. Please ask us to see a sample, we will be happy to send one out.

Appeel Medio Notebook

20 Mar

Colors: Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Renetta, Applewood, Pink Lady. 5 3/4 x 8 1/5 x 0 3/4 inches

The complete Appeel line from Castelli is unique in that these Made in Italy (but decorated in USA, so normal 5-7 turn around on orders) journals and padfolios are made from recycled apple waste. Yes, apples.

Take for example the Appeel Medio Notebook, “The Appeel Medio journal is made from apple peels that are ground and emulsified into an organic paper. This ground breaking eco friendly product is animal friendly, sustainable and all natural. Size: 5 1/4 x 8 3/8. 192 apple paper pages with green lines. Gray end pages with colored stripes. Back paper pocket.”

First the silly questions. The Appeel Medio Notebook does not smell like apples. The Appeel Medio Notebook does not taste like apples. But, each Appeel Medio Notebook is printed with information explaining that the Appeel Medio Notebook is made from apple waste, and so that this story can be easily incorporated into your our sustainability marketing message.

Of course we love this idea for anyone working on campaigns for sales, production, or distribution channels in the grocery or fruit industry. If your company is doing something with apples specifically, all the better.

And teachers gifts, as a nice Appeel Medio Notebook is likely more practical then an actual apple.
