Eco-Athens Award

27 Feb
Great look and feel.

Great look and feel.

The Eco-Athens Award by Visions-Awardcraft is created from recycled wooden fence posts. Seriously, would you ever have guessed that?

Because of their origin, the exact overall dimension and the wood grain look of each Eco-Athens Award will vary, indeed will be unique unto itself, in its fine appearance.

The recycled wooden fence posts of the Eco-Athens Award are really just used to form the ‘frame’ of this award, the actual decoration in done on the glass insertion plate. This plate can be imprinted in full color, photo quality, if needed, and since these are awards, customization of each imprint is possible, to add recipient’s name, department, award class, etc.

The Eco-Athens Award is a great award for folks in the Parks & Rec department of cities, as well as for companies that have a sustainable mission or brand. With the classic double column look, I also think the Eco-Athens Award, is a good idea for the finance, commercial real estate, and banking industries.

If you are interested in the Eco-Athens Award to promote own business, or to get a sample, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve

9 Feb
60% certified organic cotton, 40% recycled polyester.

60% certified organic cotton, 40% recycled polyester.

There is a new long sleeve tee from Econscious on the market. And it is really, really nice.

The EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is available in 3 color options and sizes, S- XXL. The material for the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is a 4.25oz 60% organic cotton ring-spun jersey material, with a 40% blend of recycled polyester.

These are the same quality shirts that Econsciuos is selling in their retail line, and part of the 1% For The Planet initiative at Econsciuos, see https://www.econscious.net/pages/sustainability. The shirts have a great drape, and a retail look to them.

However, as covered in the FAQ page at the Econsciuos website, these shirts are not manufactured in the USA, and in their defense, it is really hard to locate affordable, recycled content tees, that are made in the USA.

Other than their materials, the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is your basic long-sleeve tee (ok, they are a lot nicer than an average tee shirt), and by that I mean we can imprint the tees locally, with any art or logo necessary for your brand or business.

I think the extra cost of a sustainable tee is only really worthwhile, if the fact that the tee is made from sustainability sourced materials directly ties to the brand message your business or organization is seeking to promote. If you are teaching or preaching sustainability via your brand, it is good to look the part.

If you are interested in the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve to promote own business, or to get a sample, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

Leeds has a number of items in their EcoSmart line made from 51% to 100% recycled materials, like the Owl Recycled Deluxe Compu-Messenger Bag.

The video is no where near as informative as the TED TALK given by Mike Biddle.

Still nice short overview, and we get this question all the time.

100% Recycled 7-in-1 Jacket

13 Aug

Flame Red w/Light Grey

The 88142 MEN’S RECYCLED POLYESTER 7-IN-1 WIND JACKET WITH REVERSIBLE LINER from the Ash City e.c.o collection  is a 100% recycled content jacket that is 100% serious for cold weather (it has been over 100 degrees here in Dallas for the past week and I am dreaming of snow).

Look at the stats:

  • Outer Shell: 100% recycled polyester with water resistant finish. 2.9 oz./yd2/100 gsm. Full polyester taffeta lining.
  • Liner-woven side: 100% recycled polyester with water resistant finish.
  • Liner-reverse fleece side: 100% recycled polyester anti-pill brushed fleece. 4.3 oz./yd2/145 gsm.

Plus this is a jacket from Ash City, so regardless of materials used, you can expect all the extra perks, like flat reflective safety piping and reverse coil zippers on the jacket’s front and lower pockets.

The 88142 comes in four dramatic color choices, Captain’s Blue w/Light Grey, Flame Red w/Light Grey, Black w/Light Grey and Classic Navy w/Light Grey. The jacket also makes use of the Ash City Ezaway System® making for an easy conversion from jacket to vest (sleeves zipper off of the jacket, and 100% recycled material fleece lining is removable as fleece jacket).

The Ash City 88142 is a great option for staff jackets for any organization that has a commitment to sustainability, especially hotels and resorts that wanting to make a physical, visual, statements in their staff apparel that reflects their larger sustainable commitment.

Ash City does both screen printing and embroidery in-house, which means they know all the tricks to get the best look out of your artwork on their clothing. And since Ash City specializes in corporate apparel programs, adding the 88142 and other items of the e.c.o. collection into your existing apparel program is a snap. (Perhaps a recycled content performance polo makes more sense for the current heat).

For more information on the complete Ash City e.c.o. collection contact Chris Clark at Ash City USA. If you are looking to purchase Ash City e.c.o items for your own business contact your local promotional items distributor or email info@proformagreen.com for samples and pricing.
