Get Branded in Plastic Free July 2022

4th July 2022 in Green & Eco-Friendly

It’s July – which means it’s also Plastic Free July. This multi award-winning eco campaign began in Australia in 2011, and works towards a vision of seeing the world free of plastic waste.

Plastic is a massive global problem. Just take a moment to think about the amount of waste generated at your domestic level - from grocery carrier bags to food packaging to water bottles to milk cartons to fast food straws to beer rings and shampoo bottles and toothpaste tubes, as well as much of the packaging for other non-grocery products. At a business level the amount of waste plastic can also be staggering.

Over the years those who take part in Plastic Free July have reduced their home waste and recycling by 15kg per person per year (which equals 3.5% less waste). They’ve also reduced global demand by 2.3% of all bottled water, 3.1% of all fruit and vegetable packaging, 4% of all plastic straws. Additionally, they’ve reduced 2.1 billion tons of waste and recycling including 300 million kgs of plastic consumption.

Most importantly, the Plastic Free July campaign has impacted on the way people think and behave: 86% of people have made changes that have become habits or a way of life…


EverythingBranded and the environment

Two of the most important things any person can do is operate in line with their awareness of the world’s environmental challenges and demonstrate their eco credentials to ‘set a good example’. In the case of a business or other organization this means pointing in the direction of sustainability and showing customers, clients, colleagues, and friends that you’re conscientious about the issues. When you’re marketing your business or striving to raise brand awareness, the perfect way is to make sure any promo tools you use are plastic free and eco-friendly.

This is where EverythingBranded can help. We stock a massive range of eco-friendly promotional items. Eco-friendly printed stationery is a great start, but there are so many other opportunities when using plastic-free promotional products. Some of them are conventional and some surprising: From recycled notebooks to bamboo pens, and from environmentally branded shopping bags made of sustainable cotton to kitchen utensils made from wheat, and more!

Promoting your brand while doing what you can to protect the planet is noble and encourages others to do the same is essential. You could brand up some eco-friendly pens with your company logo or name and, after it, a message like “supports recycling” or “works for a plastic-free planet”.


Our Top Five eco-friendly non-plastic items

  1. For a quick, simple, and relatively standard way to market yourself you could opt for an eco-friendly promotional pen like the Custom Branded Wheat Flare Pen. The body contains 50% less polypropylene than other pens and is made from reclaimed stalks from wheat.
  2. A Custom Branded Eco Stone Notebook with Pen provides customers, clients, and friends with a useful place to write their notes. This notebook has a great eco feel - a hard recycled craft paper cover and 70 sheets of stone paper, plus a color matching ballpoint pen with black ink cartridge. If you’re looking for items which will chime with your eco-friendly nature in a smart and slightly off-center way you should think about the following items..
  3. For a clever conceptual impact, something like a Custom Branded Mini Planting Kit is a superb choice. It’s like giving flowers - but with your logo printed on the kit’s wrap (made entirely of seed paper). The kit also includes a 100% biodegradable rice-based pot and tray, lid, and soil wafer. Every time your customer, client or friend sees the flowers that grow from the kit, they’ll think of your business or organization.
  4. Something equally kooky and cool is the Custom Branded Eco-Friendly Reusable Silicone Straw in Case. Users can keep a drinking straw on them at all times by carrying it round in a case which has been printed with your logo. Really useful in helping eliminate the use of wasteful plastic straws in cafes, delis, and coffee shops.
  5. A Custom Branded Wheat Stalk Water Bottle is a great choice. Made from 100% sustainable wheat straw fiber, the bottles are made from the plant’s stalk rather than food grain (which is where the proteins and allergens are stored) which makes them Gluten Free by FDA standards.
