Holiday Stuff #2 – Organic Cotton
This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of ProformaGreen, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy. John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.
A number of clients and readers have asked us about ideas for eco-friendly customer gifts and I wanted to write a couple of blogs talking about items that have done well in the past for clients or that are new for this year and doing well so far.
Our first blog was on BAMBOO. Now let us move to ORGANIC COTTON.
1) Organic Cotton Towels – Unbelievably soft and absorbent with natural colors like Stone Green, White and Natural Tan, these towels make great gifts. Embroidered with your company or organization’s logo expect to pay around $24 per unit. Towels work because they will end up in the home of your customer and likely be used for a long, long time. Organic cotton towels and robes also make good employee gifts.
2) Organic Market Bag Set – These heavy duty organic cotton bags look and feel great, so they have a high perceived-value but an honest price at $16 for the set, including placement of your logo. Employees and customers will use the bags for a long, long time and they use them in public so each time your customer uses the bag in public your company or organization is on display. We also like the large print area on these bags. This is a lot of space to display your message and/or contact information. This market set helps the environment by reducing the need for plastic or paper shopping bags with this beautiful organic cotton set. The set includes a storage tote and 2 full-size grocery totes.
3) Organic Bag Recycler – So you’re green but your clients are not quite there yet, well help them out with this Organic Bag Recycler. The Recycler conveniently hangs on a door handle or hook to store and dispense plastic grocery bags for reuse and recycling. The easy tuck opening makes refilling easy and there is a wide dispenser at the bottom for easy access to bags. The unit could also be used to hold non-woven shopping bags. Again this it the type of product that is practical and useful. Apartment communities often use this item for the holidays or for new tenant welcome kits. Units run about $7 with your logo.
Please share with us and our readers any items that made your client gift list. If you want any additonal information on items mentioned here please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
