Evolve Travel Mug – Norwood Gets into Green

12 Nov

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of ProformaGreen, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy. John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Norwood has launched two new tumblers under their Evolve line, the Evolve(TM) Traveler Mug – 16 oz and the Evolve(TM) Infinity Tumbler – 16 oz.

Both units come in a variety of colors, both are Prop 65 compliant, both are top rack dishwater safe, both are microwave safe, and both are packaged in eco-friendly packaging for shipment.

The Evolve line is also made in the US and is “designed to biodegrade within 1-5 years in a managed landfill” according to the Norwood website. With one color imprint the units both run under $2.75.

100% Organic Caps with Eco-Friendly Screen Printing

10 Nov

Organic cotton cap

Proforma Green got our samples in today of the new 8650 V Natural™ Organic Cap by Vitronic Promotional Group, one of our manufacturers.

These caps are great. The 8650 V is a casual unstructured cap made from 100% organic cotton with a Velcro closure and a 3.25″ crown.

The bonus is that they come in multiple colors – Green, Natural (as shown), Soft Blue, Soft Pink and Soft Yellow – and Vitronic can use a sustainable process for dyeing and finishing on these 100% organic cotton caps, so you can show your commitment to the environment.

The best part is the cap with one color imprint runs as low as $3.97 per unit.

For any Ecopreneurist out there buying caps for resale, for employees or for events, these are certainly a good product to consider.

If you are in the promotional items business contact Norma Garza at Vitronic for more information on these caps or to order samples (mentioning Proforma Green might help). Her email is NormaG@vitronicpromotional.com.

If you are a business or other organization interested in these caps, please contact us at www.proformagreen.com or info@proformagreen.com. We will be happy to send you a sample.
