Trash Talking Cooler

10 Sep

“This is your trash talking” imprint on side of each bag.

The Trash Talking Recycled 6 Can Lunch Cooler from Leeds seems to get its name from the pre-printed artwork on the cooler itself.

Made from certified 100% recycled 140g non-woven PET, the Trash Talking Recycled 6 Can Lunch Cooler, features a zippered main compartment, and open front pocket. The inside of the cooler features an insulated, heat-sealed, water-resistant lining.

And of course it is the unique “Trash Talking” graphic on the side of each cooler that helps to promote the recycled message.

The large 5″H x 5″W imprint area on the Trash Talking Recycled 6 Can Lunch Cooler can be screen-printed, or Leeds’ PhotoGrafixx design also is available for full color decoration.

We like this cooler for camps or seminars, where the focus of the event is sustainability, or recycling, since the Trash Talking Recycled 6 Can Lunch Cooler is itself a physical example of a useful and practical item that can be manufactured from consumer waste materials.

Rolling Green on the Greens

7 Sep

The Wilson Eco Core golf ball is made from recycled material. Help the environment one golf ball at a time.

The Wilson® Eco Core Golf ball is a bit better than your standard ball, for the environment anyway, and it is a good try to bring a bit of green to the greens.

Basically the Wilson® Eco Core Golf balls have a core molded from unvulcanized automobile tires. They are packaged in recycled paper, and save about 40% of the materials, and energy to produce a ‘normal’ golf ball. The rubber from recycled tires replaces the virgin polybutadiene used in most all other golf balls.

For players, the internet says these balls are “lower-spinning distance ball”, but I confess I don’t know what that means.

For our industry, the imprinting goes on the ball itself, with pad print of 7/8″ diameter around the middle of the ball, or as a top of ball print, also at 7/8″. The imprint can have a max of 5 colors, with 4 color imprint being standard.

The recycled paper box is the standard retail looking packaging. It is not imprinted. But it does explain the pedigree of the golf balls inside, so that helps to get the sustainable story across to your audience.

So these are golf balls, which means golf events at their #1 promotional use. If your event, or course, is working on its environmental footprint, using these balls as the event give-away can add a nice touch.

Laminated 100% Recycled Shopper

23 Aug

Laminated 100% Recycled PET Fabric / 13″L 15″H 8″W

The Laminated 100% Recycled Shopper from Gemline is a great deal at $2.98 EQP. That is because this large grocery shopper comes in a number of stock imprint styles, that allow for a lot of pre-printed design, to which you can simply add your our company brand.

This is reusable grocery size tote, made from 100% PET recycled fabric. The Laminated 100% Recycled Shopper is both kid-friendly and CPSIA compliant. Each bag is about the equivalent of three recycled plastic bottles.

And I did mention these bags are big, right?

Take a look at the video.

We like these bags for farmers markets, new residents gifts, and local recycling programs. Because of their size, and that they are basically water proof, they also make really good beach totes.

Remember Me Green

30 Mar

Recycled from NY Signage.

Remember Me Green is turning New York City billboards into some great looking bags.

“New York is a city with a vibrant energy, and with our billboard products you get to add your unique vibe to it. A diversity of people contribute to NYC’s lifeforce, and RMG has kept that in mind. We’ve created a product line that speak to people who don’t want to just carry a bag, they want to carry a message.

Green fashion is our priority here at RMG. You can rock some eco-friendly accessories with our re-purposed vinyl bags, made from billboards found throughout New York City. Billboards are made of a large amount of vinyl that would normally just be tossed away. By carrying one of our bags, you play a role in the solution to pollution all while looking fabulous.

Every item we create is one-of-a kind, every piece has its own heartbeat. For the gal on the go we’ve got billboard bags available in versatile styles and sizes. If you’re headed out for a wine night, there’s our line of upcycled wine bags. Or if you like to garden at home, you can grow green with our line of re-purposed garden bags. We believe in individuality, green fashion, and style.”

This is an idea that can be done for any city, sport center, or university, that wishes to turn their used banners and signage into promotional items. The idea has been around for nearly a decade now, so if you are a visitor’s center or tourist board looking for a great ideas, give a ring to discuss second life promotional billboard bags.

Appeel Medio Notebook

20 Mar

Colors: Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Renetta, Applewood, Pink Lady. 5 3/4 x 8 1/5 x 0 3/4 inches

The complete Appeel line from Castelli is unique in that these Made in Italy (but decorated in USA, so normal 5-7 turn around on orders) journals and padfolios are made from recycled apple waste. Yes, apples.

Take for example the Appeel Medio Notebook, “The Appeel Medio journal is made from apple peels that are ground and emulsified into an organic paper. This ground breaking eco friendly product is animal friendly, sustainable and all natural. Size: 5 1/4 x 8 3/8. 192 apple paper pages with green lines. Gray end pages with colored stripes. Back paper pocket.”

First the silly questions. The Appeel Medio Notebook does not smell like apples. The Appeel Medio Notebook does not taste like apples. But, each Appeel Medio Notebook is printed with information explaining that the Appeel Medio Notebook is made from apple waste, and so that this story can be easily incorporated into your our sustainability marketing message.

Of course we love this idea for anyone working on campaigns for sales, production, or distribution channels in the grocery or fruit industry. If your company is doing something with apples specifically, all the better.

And teachers gifts, as a nice Appeel Medio Notebook is likely more practical then an actual apple.
