Antiquity Meets Modernity: Cork USB Drives

23 Nov

Cork Drives Provide More Natural Look & Feel

Cork is a natural and renewable resource that dates back to before the Roman Empire. Cork is harvested without cutting down the tree itself, allowing most trees to have a life expectancy of up to 200 years.

US Flash & Technology and other manufacturers are now bringing this eco-friendly resource into modern times by using cork casing for USB flash drives.

The new cork drives are priced about the same as other eco-friendly material drives made from recycled paper, bamboo, and recycled plastic. Memory sizes come standard at 512MB – 8GB. As the price for flash memory is always in flux, you should check with your local promotions items vendor on pricing.

As always sending a flash drive of information saves trees, fuel, and postage over mailing bulky brochures or catalogs. Plus you can add a full multimedia experience.

When these drives hit our office the first idea was to load them with a couple of romantic MP3 songs, and use the cork drives in a mailing campaign to support a winery client with a green / organic product line. Brochures, video, sale-sheets, tasting notes, of course any data normally placed on a USB drive is going to work with these cork drives as well.

As a consumer electronic product, all quality drives sold by our industry are ROHS certified, which means they are free of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.

And bonus, they float (not sure they are waterproof though).

If you are ASI or PPAI and want information on cork USB drives contact Nate Tangerini at US Flash & Technology. If you are looking to purchase drives for your own event or any other purpose, please contact your local promotional items distributor or email info@proformagreen.com for samples and pricing.
