Top 15 Sustainable Promotional Items for Your Business

It’s no secret that a lot of consumers are leaning towards a more eco-conscious lifestyle. According to Deloitte, consumers have shifted their relationship with the products – mainly, they’re only buying what they need, they’re using more public transport, and are opting for recyclable products.

Companies should respond to this market shift as it can address two challenges at once. Shifting to greener alternatives quickly can help companies stay relevant and actively contribute to preservation and conservation initiatives.

When choosing the right promotional marketing product, one should consider three main things:

  • Reusability – Durability and versatility contribute to sustainability. Choose eco-friendly items designed for long-term use to reduce landfill waste.
  • Production and disposal impact – Consider the environmental impact of the product’s manufacturing and disposal processes. Look for sustainable farming and harvesting practices and products that naturally degrade.
  • Social impact – Support small businesses and cottage industries like weaving and small-scale farming. Choose products certified by environmental regulators.

Promotional marketing companies with sustainable options, like Red Tomato, can help communicate your company’s dedication to an environmentally positive direction.
