Reusable vs. Disposable Items

  • Dec 15, 2020

Disposable products are a common part of everyday life for most folks – think single-use items like plastic cutlery, paper plates, shopping bags from the grocery store, napkins, the coffee cup from the drive-thru… the list goes on and on. However, as great as they might be for convenience, they’re not the best for the planet. Here are two ways to replace the landfill-bound items in your life with reusable promotional products:


Cork Tumbler

You might think of the daily Starbucks cup as recyclable – after all, they’re made of paper and plastic – but depending on where you live, they might not be. Many tossed goods have to be cleaned well and sorted properly just to have a chance at being recycled into something new, and not every piece of paper or plastic is even recyclable to begin with. However, many of your favorite beverage stops will gladly fill a cup that you brought rather than use one of their disposables!

Promotional tumblers make a great gift or giveaway for customers looking to reduce their environmental impact. With a variety of styles for both hot and cold beverages, promotional tumblers are an item that will get used daily, allowing your logo to be seen frequently.


Grocery Bags

Reusable BagHow many people do you know that have the infamous “bag full of bags” hanging in their pantry, kitchen, or utility closet? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Plastic grocery bags are bound to wind up in landfills – or even tangled in the branches of trees!

Reusable grocery bags are a great promotion because pretty much everyone has to grocery shop! There are all kinds of styles, materials, and sizes available, so you’ll be able to find a bag as unique as your brand. Plus, customers will use these bags for a long time instead of throwing them away or banishing them to the bag o’bags after one use, meaning your logo will get seen time and time again.
