Garyline Earth Day Sale Items

11 Apr

Garyline, a US manufacturer working out of the Bronx, sent over this flyer for Earth Day specials. Couple of good ideas in USA made drinkware. For Earth Day Garyline is putting in sale a few of their most popular items.

The WB21R – 21 oz. Bike Bottle. Your basic bike bottle. Recycled & BPA-free. Molded with food-compliant, post-consumer recycled HDPE. Union Made in the USA.

The TB27RP – 27oz Eco-Friendly Pearl Sports Bottle. This is one of our favorites made from a new material by combining  Post-Consumer Recycled PET with Natural & Renewable PLA. The combination is eco-friendly and gives the bottles a naturally pearlescent shine.  This product is BPA-free. Union Made in the USA

The AM16R – 16 oz Auto Mug – Recycled. Standard commuter mug, this 16 oz. Auto Mug has a four-finger comfort handle and is available in 4 recycled colors.  Union printed in the USA

The SC16R – 16oz Recycled Stadium Cup. Basic stadium cups made from recycled content. I much prefer the cups from Visstun for their full color imprint. But for the price this is a sturdy recycled materials stadium cup. Great for sports events and concerts. Union Made in the USA.

Vantage Offers Pre-Designs On Earth Day Shirts; Just Add Your Name

19 Mar

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

Vantage Apparel is one of the leaders in our industry for eco-friendly apparel, with a special focus on organic cotton t-shirts and eco printing.

Vantage knows a lot of organizations want to make a big splash this year around Earth Day but also that some of those organizations may not have a budget for a big time design when it comes to organic cotton t-shirts and other apparel items.  So they are making it easy for you.

In a move I can only say is very ecopreneurial, Vantage is teaming up with distributors like Proforma to offer a full line of 20 plus Earth Day designs ready to be placed onto all nine of their organic cotton t-shirts and totes.

Schools, clubs, city departments, charities, businesses, etc., for any and all this is a great way for an Ecopreneurist to make a big splash without having to fill the entire swimming pool out of their own pocket.

If you are interested in viewing all the Earth Day pre-graphics in this program you can download the .pdf here. For more information on Vantage visit their website at vantageapparel.com or see the Vantage online catalog  located here.

Please note that the Earth Day pre-graphics program is not mentioned on the website or the online catalog, so if you want more information on the program, including pricing, please email info@proformagreen.com.
