We have all heard for years now that plastic bags are not bio-degradable and stay in landfills for decades.  Or that using paper bags at the rate that we make purchases ends up devastating rain-forests, etc.   Although a lot more people are starting to use reusable grocery bags there are still a lot of us who do as we always did, and rely on the store to provide disposable bags for our purchases.  However, now many stores are either giving customers money back for each reusable bag they use during each visit, or they are charging customers extra for using the store’s disposable bags.  This is providing a more immediate incentive for customers to start changing their long time habits.  Everyday people, not just “tree huggers”,  are now more likely to have reusable bags in the trunk of their cars.  It is now mainstream and more comfortable for people to be seen bringing their own bags.  This has opened a huge market for companies to advertise on these bags that people collect and are seen in public over and over again.  They also make for great promotional gifts!  The environment is benefiting from this trend more than ever, and people can feel good about doing their small part.  Go karma!

One Step Closer

bottlesIn today’s society going green and global warning are some of the biggest issues we face. The use of plastic and paper cups, bags, plates, etc. contribute to a combine total of 38% of the trash in landfills alone (Environmental Literacy Council). To decrease this number, the citizens of countries around the world have began to use environmentally friendly reusable and recycled cups and bottles instead of throw-away plastic or paper bottles or cups. Many corporate offices themselves use thousands of single-use plastic and paper cups each month. Now its time to act and jump aboard the green wagon by using stainless-steel reusable water bottles. The Hit Promotional Products 25 oz bottle has a spill-resistant lid and a wide-mouth opening. This environmentally friendly bottle comes in metallic, red, blue, and green. Your company, school, or organization can show their commitment to going green by imprinting the name and logo on the environmentally friendly bottle. The large surface area of the bottle allows for different printing locations and the choice between silk-screening a logo onto the product or having it engraved. Having your company/organization go green by decreasing the amount of paper and plastic waste you are also saving money by investing in a bottle that will outlast any paper or plastic cup. http://hitpromo.net/products.php?proID=639
