First Bamboo Fiber Golf Towel

16 Jul

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.

Here is a short video from the 2009 Proforma Convention in Denver. This is Pro Towels Etc’s new bamboo fiber golf towel, which they say is the first bamboo fiber golf towel introduced to the promotional items market.

Why towels? As a promotional item they have a number of advantages over shirts and caps, the items they seem to compete with the most. According to Pro Towels the advantages are:

  • For Recognition – Make a huge impact with a 25″ x 50″ logo on a beach towel.  Largest imprint area amongst most other promotional products.
  • For Durability – Machine washable for endless use. When was the last time you threw a towel away?
  • For Leisure – Towels are used when doing fun things such as swimming, boating, golfing, etc.
  • For Value – Superior value for price.
  • For Style – Towels never go out of style.

For the Ecopreneurist organic cotton and bamboo towels are a great match for many summer time marketing activities like boating events, golfing events, spa weekends, etc., and they really do provide a large imprintable message area at a low cost.

If you are in the business the ASI contact to talk is Dana Zezzo at Pro Towels Etc. If you are interested in these items to promote your own business contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

Managing or starting up an eco spa? Trying to “green” your fitness center? Launching a new green hotel? Then this may be for you.

Pro Towels has released a new line of towels made from bamboo. They are lovely and great for any spa or water related business with a green agenda.

Bamboo as a woven material is popping up more and more in the industry. I would say it feels closer to silk than cotton and is being used in bags, totes, shirts, the usual suspects.

The Pro Towel Bamboo Collection advertises itself as a 35”x60”, heavyweight, twill hemmed and looped finished towel of 100% bamboo. Colors available are Sandalwood, Ivory, Leaf Green and Pure White. Continue reading
