A great deal of plastic is thrown away in rubbish bins daily and can take up to 1000 years to decompose. This is an outrageous fact and highly damaging to the environment. Some plastics can release harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil, which can then flow into groundwater or other surrounding water sources and then into the ecosystem. This can cause serious harm to many different species that consume the water.
Landfill areas contain many different types of plastics that are decomposing but, this no longer needs to be the case. Many plastics can be recycled or down-cycled and made into new products for us to use and help protect our beautiful world.
Following on from the ‘Plastic can still be fantastic’ blog post, here are some of the promotional products that bmt Promotions produce that are eco-friendly, are made from recycled plastic products or are biodegradable.
Biodegradable Plastic Bags
For exhibitions and events where you want to supply a bag of goodies to your attendees, use a biodegradable plastic bag that can be branded with your logo creating brand awareness for your business.
Our ‘non-woven poly propylene bags’ are also a popular eco-friendly option. They are a thermoplastic polymer bag which can be melted down, recycled and made into other items once you have finished with them.
Recycled Sports Bottles
Instead of having your employees purchasing disposable water bottles from the vending machine each working day, provide them with a reusable sports bottle made of recycled plastic, like our base sports bottle. The Base Sports Bottle is an established success for the promotional market, thanks to its ergonomic shape and large branding area. It’s made in Britain too so you’re assured of high quality and durability.
Promotional pens made from recycled plastic
Our range of promotional pens made from recycled plastic are becoming increasingly popular year on year as businesses start to think about the impact they are having on the environment. The Contour Digital Eco Ballpen features a recycled plastic barrel with rubber grip in a choice of colours and a chrome trim. The patented barrel has a large area for branding with your business logo via digital printing.
The Re-Pen Push Ballpen is an eco-friendly push-button ballpen made from recycled Tetra Pak cartons. Tetra Pak is a type of plasticized cardboard carton for milk and other drinks, folded from a single sheet into a box shape.
Recycled Promotional pencils
Our set of promotional pencils enables you to add your business logo and message whilst remaining environmentally friendly, as the pencils are made from recycled plastic. These pencils are available in a variety of different colours with silver ferrule and pink eraser and make a great giveaway at exhibitions and trade shows.
Branded stress shapes
Our branded stress shapes can be made into any shape you like: A boat for a sailing company, a pig for a farm shop or some weights for a gymnasium to give away when people enroll. They can even be made into the shape of your business logo and handed out to create brand awareness for your company. As well as the limitless creative element with stress shapes, they are also made from biodegradable eco-friendly material so can be easily recycled once they are no longer required.
