Proud Path from PCNA

26 Apr

PCNA is going all in (nearly) on sustainable, renewable, and climate friendly products available to the promotional products market through their new company wide program called ProudPath.

From the PCNA website, ” Introducing ProudPath™, a new platform that will make it even easier to deliver for your customers’ environmental and social responsibility objectives. Whether you want retail brands that give to great causes, need products made with eco-friendly materials or would like to support a small business, ProudPath™ is designed to empower you with the right solution, making it easier to create gifts people can feel good about. ProudPath™ also represents a call to action for our industry. This is an opportunity to reimagine the present while shaping a future that will make us all proud.”

The program is worth a look. PCNA seems to have organized and centralized those parts of their business related to sustainability. And then add a number of new products, and announced continuing support for a number of environmentally focus organizations, including 1% For the Planet, Well Aware, and ONETREEPLANTED.

Used for bottles and containers, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is the most commonly recycled plastic in the world.
Pre-consumer is salvaged from the manufacturing of cotton goods, while post-consumer is from used tees and towels.
Recycled plastic, organic cotton, FSC®-certified bamboo and more. Our eco-friendly products are made with a variety of materials — all of them better for the planet.

Taken as a whole, the ProudPath initiative is rather expansive, especially for a promo company, and certainly worth taking a look at for idea for your next marketing campaign.

If you are interested in this product to promote your own business, or if you wish to see some samples, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.

Thule Heritage Indago 15.6″ Computer Backpack 23L

10 Nov

Using name brand items in your marketing efforts is always a good way to go. The better the brand’s reputation, the higher the perceived value of the item given.

Thule was founded in 1942 in the deepest forest of Småland, Sweden, by Erik Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors. Since then, their focus has been designing and developing quality products that help carry your gear wherever your passion takes you.

The new Thule Heritage Indago 15.6″ Computer Backpack 23L goes a step rather in it’s relationship with Bluesign, an independent verifier which works to ensure manufacturing with the lowest possible environmental impact.

So what you get with the Thule Heritage Indago 15.6″ Computer Backpack 23L is a very serious travel backpack, from a well know brand, and with a well sustainable pedigree.

From the manufacturer, “From office to class, carry in style with the Thule Heritage 79 Backpack. The exterior materials of this backpack are Bluesign® approved. This backpack features a main compartment with elevated, padded protection for laptops up to 15.6” and fits books and folders. Find storage for all your belongings with the easy access exterior pocket with small accessory storage and key fob, quick access slip pocket, and large zipped interior translucent pocket stores pens and small accessories. This backpack features must haves like two water bottle pockets, a padded back panel, and webbing grab handle.”

This large bag features the travelers essentials, an organizational pocket, laptop compartment, water bottle pocket, and padded adjustable shoulder straps. For those in the know, 23L refers to 23 litters, the bags carrying size.

Decoration on the Thule Heritage Indago 15.6″ Computer Backpack 23L is in full color, using factory level Digital Print Transfer, with embroidery as a second option.
