Promotional items ideas for organizations that value sustainability

There’s a vast range of products that you can choose from to promote your brand; pens, journals, mugs and water bottles… the list goes on. Sadly, most of these products contain plastic – which we know isn’t fantastic for the environment.

Sprout World’s mission is to get more people to care about the planet. We believe that organizations have a part to play in this as well. Our eco-friendly products can help you communicate your support for sustainability to your customers, employees and business partners.

Use promotional items to support your digital marketing

Marketing budgets aren’t limitless, and you have to carefully choose where you want to allocate your money. As we live in a digitally-driven world, there’s a temptation to focus solely on digital marketing and promotion, believing that this will give the best return on investment (ROI). The downside of digital marketing is that it can be short-lived. A tweet moves down the scroll after a few seconds or a social advert can be lost when an individual clicks to a different website.

We’re not saying that digital marketing shouldn’t be part of your marketing plan – it definitely should be! But for the best results, you should also invest in promotional items to support your digital marketing campaigns. Research shows that on average promotional items are kept for seven months. It’s also common for these items to be shared with colleagues or taken out to client meetings. So, an item that is customized with your logo or company name has the potential to be seen by many.

The planet doesn’t need more plastic promotional items

The world is awash with plastic, literally. Plastic items are found in the middle of oceans and are frequently washed up on the remotest beaches. Plastic is used in almost everything – including some things you may not be aware of; shampoo, face creams, toothpaste and chewing gum.

It doesn’t have to be like this. We believe that if everyone makes small changes in their day-to-day lives, great things can happen. For example, 135 million plastic pens are produced each day – most of which end up in landfills. By swapping plastic pens for plantable pencils, that’s potentially 135 million new plants grown each day. That’s impressive, right?
