Parkland Southland 15″ Computer Backpack

Promotional products manufacturer LEED’S (PCNA) has introduced a number of new bags in time for Earth Day 2021. These seems to be part of a larger push to provide a wider range of promotional products made from recycled and/or sustainable materials.

From LEED’S, “As sustainability becomes a higher priority for people everywhere, demand for eco-friendly products is on the rise. Businesses are taking strides to be more environmentally conscious, and consumers are more mindful of what they’re buying. In fact, 66% of shoppers reported that they would spend more on a product if it came from a sustainable brand (Nielsen). Here are some new ideas for the type of eco-friendly gifts your clients may be looking for.”

Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit

19 Jan

The Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit is getting a mention on this site basically because I really like it. With so many people stuck in place over the last year, more people taking up cooking, or looking for interesting projects to share with young kits, I think the Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit is a great give-away item to send to employees and clients, as a start of the year pick-me-up.

The kit includes organic and/or non-GMO seeds, and the glass jar is of course reusable and recyclable, because – glass. In 2015 the Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit even made the list of Oprah’s Favorite Things. The $54 pricing on this site must be retail, or just out of date, because printed promotional kits are as low as $22.99.

From the manufactures website, “This Modern Sprout self-watering herb kit features a vintage-inspired mason jar outfitted with a passive hydroponic system known as “wicking,” which brings water and nutrients up to the plant’s roots. So whether you forget to water, over water, or both, we’ve got you covered. This year-round indoor planter comes equipped with everything you’ll need to start growing, just add water and set in a sunny window.”

This colored quart mason jar kit is assembled in the USA, and comes with all the necessaries for growing your herbs. There are three options; Ice Blue jar is Mint Seeds, Emerald jar is Cilantro Seeds and Teal jar is Basil Seeds. The imprint area for your logo on the Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit is 1.75″W x 0.5″H.

With Proforma’s Perfectly Packaged Service we can send the Modern Sprout Indoor Herb Garden Kit direct to your audience’s homes and offices. We can also bundle with cutting boards, and other kitchen items, coffee mugs, etc., to make with into a full gift package.

Hotels, restaurants, yes, but think technology, food services, website marketing, autos. Umbrellas are walking billboards.

And colors, Burgundy, Gray/white, Blue, as well as Black. The 42″ Recycled PET Auto Open Plaid Folding Umbrella also features a wooden handle, which is a nice touch.
