A Guide to Eco-Friendly Gifts
The holidays are coming and that means coming up with unique and thoughtful gifts once again for all of your customers, clients, partners, and employees. If you’re looking for a way to make your gifts wow this year, consider going eco-friendly. Choose products made from sustainable and eco-friendly materials like recycled plastic water bottles, organic cotton, and wood. Sustainability is all the rage–think banning plastic straws–so gifting something good for the Earth is sure to excite any recipient. Don’t believe us? Even Adidas will be making 100% of their polyester from recycled plastic by 2024! To help get you started, below are some of our most popular environmentally conscious products that you can customize this year.
Threadfast Tri‑Blend Full Zip T‑shirt Hoodie
It doesn’t get more trendy, or more soft, than luxurious tri-blend fabric. The Threadfast Tri‑Blend Full Zip T‑shirt Hoodie is a lightweight option that screams “upgrade pick” to anyone who receives one. We’re sure anyone who gets one of these will grab for it any chance they get. It has frosted vintage heather tri-blend yarn and unisex sizing to fix any group. It’s also eco-friendly because it’s made from a portion of recycled materials.
Royal Apparel Eco Tri‑Blend USA Pullover Hoodie
The Royal Apparel Eco Tri‑Blend USA Pullover Hoodie has been a popular pick but now, it’s made with a new eco tri-blend fleece that’s made from post-consumer plastic bottles, organic cotton, and rayon. Not only is this a great sustainable option, but it’s also made in the USA. The kangaroo pocket and rib sleeve cuffs and band add some extra style, too. This would be perfect wrapped up with a small logo on the chest or with a company motto!
Threadfast Tri‑Blend Baseball Raglan
Baseball raglans are always a good idea. Those trendy contrast sleeves will never go out of style! The Threadfast Tri‑Blend Baseball Raglan is stylish, super soft, and very affordable to customize for your holiday gift. It also comes in some great colors like this grey and red tri-blend mix. It’s made of Earth-friendly ringspun cotton, polyester, and rayon. We’d bet your employees would love a custom one of these under the tree this year.
Alternative Apparel Tri‑Blend Raglan Zip Hoodie
The soft, comfortable fabric of the Alternative Apparel Tri‑Blend Raglan Zip Hoodie makes it a no-brainer. As promised, it’s eco-friendly with its lightweight polyester, cotton, rayon tri-blend material, and also gives us total throwback vibes. These would look great with your logo on the front or back–we could especially see these fitting in at a tech company or for groups who spend time outdoors.
Bagito Deluxe Grande Tote
It kind of always feels like you could use another good bag–especially around the holidays. The Bagito Deluxe Grande Tote is a large reusable shopping bag that holds two times the amount of the average shopping bag. It has 10″ handles, has a “stuff sack” built into the lining, and is food safe. Bagito also donates a percentage of their proceeds to their sister non‑profit Power2Sustain, which teaches and empowers K‑12 students to sustain their natural world. On top of that, it’s made of 100% recycled plastics. This bag is pretty much Mother Teresa, AND the perfect holiday gift. We’d be so excited to scoop up one of these with your logo on the front, and we’re sure your customers or suppliers would be as well.
FinalStraw Collapsible Stainless Steel Reusable Straw
Plastic straws are out–so don’t be left without a way to sip your favorite drink. The FinalStraw Collapsible Stainless Steel Reusable Straw is eco-friendly, environmentally responsible, and reusable and washable. Using one of these babies can help minimize plastic waste to protect our oceans, rivers, and marine life. It even comes with a trendy carry case. And, it comes in the color “shark butt gray.” Sign us up for this amazing gift! Personalize it with your logo and we’re sure everyone you give one to will be talking about it all next year.
Laser Engraved Wood PopSocket®
Looking for a gift that’s a little more unique? Then the Laser Engraved Wood PopSocket® is for you this season. This phone holder is perfect for your phone company, bank, or marketing company, and it even expands when you need it to turn into a media stand. It has a stylish wood finish that comes in bamboo or rosewood, which are the perfect backdrops for laser engraving. Your brand will have such an elevated look on this piece with the sleek customization, and the natural materials are a nice added touch.
Recycled Mini Flip Spiral Jotter with Pen
Write down your thoughts while also helping the environment? Count us in! The Recycled Mini Flip Spiral Jotter with Pen is an eco-friendly jotter that’s easy to throw in a bag or keep in your desk for when a big idea strikes. It’s made of recycled cardboard and it even has a matching barrel ballpoint pen that’s also made of recycled materials. With 60 ruled pages and a plastic band closure, all this needs to be the perfect gift is your logo on the front.
