ECO Explorer From Kanata

3 Dec

The ECO Explorer from Kanata Blanket Company is another example of the high quality, high value, green giving ideas available as we head into the holiday season.

ECO Explorer Camel exterior / Moss ECO fleece interior

The Kanata ECO Explorer is made from Repreve, a 100% recycled polyester fiber made from items such as old water bottles and other “post-consumer products out of the waste stream” as noted on the Repreve website.

In addition, as a member of 1% For The Planet, Unifi has pledged to donate one percent of total annual Repreve® yarn sales to environmental causes. Customers can make a difference by casting a vote for how this is distributed using the code provided on the hangtag attached to every Kanata ECO Explorer.

So all that is great, but let’s talk about the Kanata ECO Explorer itself.

This blanket is beautiful, soft, and inviting. Kanata ECO Explorer uses an on-the-go rolled design with velcro closure to make it a blanket great for travel. The blanket is machine washable and comes standard with carry handle made from heavy duty molded plastic.

Kanata has also come up with a variety of different custom imprinting methods to help your branding and marketing efforts, including embroidery, custom patch designs, lasering (on fleece interior only), screen printing (on exterior only), and reflective safety tape (on exterior only). Imprinting styles can be mixed and matched as needed to best target your selected audience.

The standard Kanata ECO Explorer runs 45″ x 58″ and has a camel exterior (pantone 4505C) and moss ECO fleece interior (pantone 7497C). Standard runs start as low as 12 units. Custom colors available with minimum order of 1,500 pieces.

If you are in the business and have questions, Shirley Lee at Kanata Blanket is the contact to talk to. If you are interested in ECO fleece items to promote your own business, contact your local promotional items vendor or email for information and pricing.
