Raining Rose Provides Green Treats For October Events

28 Sep

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of Proforma Simonetta Freelance, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Readers may have noticed that in my last few posts I have been focusing on promotional items that can be used by Ecopreneurists for marketing in two rather large October events, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Halloween.

Both of these events can provide Ecopreneurists an opportunity to involve themselves in their local community, while also raising awareness of their services.

Indeed our office just donated custom printed biodegradable Halloween bags to the Denver Children’s Museum for their Trick or Treat Street event. (FYI Denver Children’s Museum is still looking for an additional 3,000 bags, if anyone is interested in sponsoring them please email me directly). I am sure every Ecopreneurist can find deserving organizations to support in their own communities.

Anyway, to help us all out with ideas, Raining Rose – the first in the promotional items industry to offer a USDA certified organic promotional lip balm – is getting ready for October by introducing several new Breast Cancer Awareness theme and Halloween theme lip balm background art wraps ready for the addition of your company’s logo and contact information (see all wraps here).

These wraps can be added to any of Raining Rose’s standard SPF 15 and SPF 30 lip balms, which are 66% organic and come in a number of flavors such as Iced Pear, Cherry, Citrus, Coconut, Grape, Strawberry and Lemonade. Unfortunately Raining Rose has no pumpkin lip balms for the holidays.

What are these nature lip balms made of? As an example the Strawberry lip balm ingredients are organic palm oil, beeswax, organic extra virgin olive oil, flavor or essential oil, organic hemp seed oil, vitamin E, rosemary extract.

All Raining Rose products are made in the USA and made on location in their FDA audited facility. All products have their ingredients listed on the Raining Rose website. All casings are made from 30% biodegradable plastic.

There is no extra cost to use the stock art wraps so the lip balm still cost just $0.90 EPQ per unit.

If you are ASI, PPAI or SAGE and want to test out their products just ask Lisa Waggoner.

If you are interested in these items to promote your own business contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

    Great post! I’m the founder and director of the Green Halloween initiative (www.GreenHalloween.org) and would love to help get the word out about the balms via our newsletter, blog, media event and new click through marketplace. Feel free to e-mail me directly.

    For readers, we also suggest http://www.RecyclingIsCool.com from http://www.RecycledProdcuts.com (Weisenbach Printing) – who have TONS of great, green promotional items that are perfect for Halloween and beyond. We love the mood pencils made from recycled money, soy crayons, recycled Green Halloween door hangers and everything else they have!
