Hardy Eco Jacket

18 Apr

The Hardy Eco Jacket from TRIMARK is a take on the classic uniform/warehouse jacket, using more sustainable materials.

From the manufacturers website, “The stylish, sustainable men’s Hardy Eco Jacket is the perfect transitional jacket. Its breathable fabric and lining are made from recycled polyester, and its zipper and pinch label are also made from recycled content, making it a comfy, eco-friendly piece you can feel good about wearing. It has a water-resistant coating that provides lightweight weather protection, plus upper patch pockets and lower welt pockets to store valuables. Features like one-button cuffs and a dropped back hem help keep cold air out, and a back vent makes it extra breathable for maximum comfort. With style that looks great anywhere, this versatile jacket will become your new favorite for year-round use. And through a partnership with 1% For The Planet, one percent of sales of all Eco products are donated to environmental nonprofits.”

With an outer shell of 53% recycled polyester, and 100% recycled polyester lining, the Hardy Eco Jacket is one of the few, mainstream, sustainable promotional jackets on the market today.

Color options are Bark (brown) or Black, with sizes running small to 3XL.

TRIMARK offers four decoration methods for the Hardy Eco Jacket, apparel embroidery (classic stitched decoration to add color and dimension to a design), apparel laser (a laser is used to etch the artwork into the item), apparel transfer (good for full color, detailed art. Logo is printed on an intermediate and transferred to item), and apparel deboss (logo is stamped into the product using a custom metal die).

It is possible we see virtual and spec layouts for all of these methods, so we suggested sending artwork and letting the TRIMARK inhouse artist help develop the best look to match your marketing needs.

Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack

15 Dec

The Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack is another example of an item that you would have no idea was made of recycled materials, unless you directly inquired.

This bag is well designed, sturdy, stylish, and perfect office or travel companion. It is also made from recycled polyester.

From the manufacturer, “The Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack is streamlined to cleverly organize work, life and gym gear in a minimalist design. This backpack features a separate laptop section with internal pouch for accessories and can hold devices up to 16″. Find what you need easily with the full-zip clamshell opening for easy accessibility and quick-access front pocket with mesh slip pockets and pen loop. Keep your sunglasses safely in the soft-lined pouch on top. The external side pockets invisibly stores a wallet, water bottle and other essentials. A large internal stretch pocket is perfect for holding your gym shoes or sweatshirt, while the internal zip mesh pocket is ideal for storing small items. The contoured, breathable back panel and padded shoulder straps allow for comfortable carrying.”

The 20L in the name of the Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack stands for 20 litters, which is how volume in bags is measured. See Bo Ismono’s excellent explanation of bag size here.

Decoration of your logo or artwork on the bag can be done as embroidery (recommended) or professional digital print transfer.

The Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack is a great idea for a sales force that is on the go, even if that just means an occasional trip between virtual and main office.

Need more convincing, take a look at the Bellroy Transit 20L Workpack video (which weirdly has no sound).

Eco Gifts For Virtual Conferences And Tradeshows

22 Feb

Online Events Reduce Your Footprint – And So Can The Gifts, article present by PCNA Eco Style.

January is about more than trying to stick with New Year’s resolutions. It’s also a big month for conferences, tradeshows and sales meetings.

Now that those events are moving to virtual platforms, people are discovering that hosting them online has some advantages – for one thing, it opens up the event to more presenters and attendees, who no longer have to worry about scheduling conflicts or the time, effort and expense required for travel.

Another huge benefit of going virtual? It eliminates the environmental impact of bringing together hundreds or thousands of people:

+ No travel to and from event.

+ No lighting, heat or AC for the venue.

+ No heaping mounds of trash destined for a landfill.

Sustainability and eco-consciousness emerged as big trends in 2020, so promoting 2021 virtual events as a win for the environment makes a lot of sense – starting with an eco-friendly swag bag. And as a bonus, all the products you’re about to see are part of our 1% For The Planet program, meaning one percent of sales are contributed to environmental nonprofits.

Pretty cool, huh?

Dege Eco Knit Half Zip | 18306 (M) and 98306 (W)

Want to feel good about what you’re wearing? This half-zip is made from recycled polyester AND it looks great. The convertible collar gives you two different ways to wear it. It also has moisture-wicking, snag-resistant, wash-and-wear fabric with UPF 40+ protection (light colors UPF 15-24) and an anti-microbial finish to keep you feeling fresh.

Can’t have a killer swag bag without really cool apparel. Trend-right style and casual comfort make the Dege a standout, but what’s even better is that it’s made with more than 30% recycled polyester, taking plastic waste and turning it into something you can feel good about wearing.

 

Cougar Wheat Straw Ballpoint | SM-4482

The Cougar Wheat Straw Ballpoint features 40% wheat straw barrel. Click action mechanism. Black ink cartridge with 1.0mm pen tip. 800m writing length. Through a partnership with 1% For The Planet one percent of sales of this and all EcoSmart products will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.

Here’s the thing about people doing virtual events: They can’t take notes on their laptop! So a pen and notebook really come in handy. (We’ll get to the notebook in a second.) The Cougar Ballpoint has a barrel partly made with sturdy, sustainable wheat straw instead of planet-harming plastic.

5” x 7” EcoFlex PerfectBook | PEC-700EB

Flexible, wraparound 100% recycled paper covers in Natural or Black. Includes 1-color foil or blind deboss imprint. 100 sheets of 60# lined EcoFiller, or blank. Graph or dot grid available for an upcharge (contact sales for pricing). Perfect-bound spine

OK, about that notebook. The EcoFlex features a flexible wraparound cover made with 100% recycled paper. In other words, it’s pretty much a no-brainer for your eco-friendly swag bag.

Wheat Straw Storage With Utensils | SM-2226

The Wheat Straw Food Storage with Utensils comes equipped with a band to hold the lid and utensils in place. Container is microwave safe. Do not put band or utensils in microwave. Through a partnership with 1% For The Planet one percent of sales of this and all EcoSmart products will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.

Food storage is another gift that’s big right now, with more people packing lunch as part of the new routine for 9 to 5. And in case you’re wondering, the wheat straw container is microwave-safe.

Recycled 5oz Cotton Twill Tote | SM-5830

This recycled cotton twill tote is great for any convention and helps promote corporate social responsibility. It is manufactured from pre-consumer waste generated by factories during the fabric cutting process. Approximately 70%-80% recycled cotton and 20-30% RPET. Through a partnership with 1% For The Planet one percent of sales of this and all EcoSmart products will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.

Naturally, you’re going to need a nice bag for everything. This trendy twill tote is made with pre-consumer recycled cotton, which is material that’s left over from the manufacture of other cotton goods. So instead of going to a landfill, that extra cotton is turned into an eco-friendly alternative to plastic conference totes.
