This week tens of thousands of people across the UK are set to record how much packaging they throw away as part of an effort to provide a national snapshot of the plastic waste problem in the UK.
Campaigners hope the count will push the government to reduce single-use plastic by 50% by 2025 by switching to reusable options that work for everyone. Also banning all plastic exports and implementing a deposit return scheme for recycling and reuse.
Our Top 3 Reusable Promotional Products
Here are 3 ways you can switch to a great reusable alternative that will dramatically reduce your plastic waste. Each of these useful items can be branded with your company logo and is perfect for events, onboarding staff and client giveaways.
1. Stainless Steel Water Bottles
Drinks bottles are a huge part of our plastic problem. “A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute. 93% of these end up in landfills or our oceans.” It’s a problem that many people can work to improve quite easily simply by using a reusable drinks bottle. Brandelity has a huge range of reusable drink bottles which can be branded with your logo. Our best-seller is the Verona Water Bottle. We supply this bottle printed, engraved or featuring a full wrap print design, so it can be customised just the way you like it!
2. Grocery Bags
For the most part, plastic bags have been replaced by long-lasting reusable bags such as the trusty cotton tote. This has led to it becoming one of the most effective promotional products on the market. Our Evo Recycled Cotton Tote Bag comes printed with your logo! Evolving out of cotton waste and used plastic bottles, this recycled tote bag turns waste materials into an eco-friendly promotional item.
3. Lunchboxes & Cutlery
Both branded lunchboxes and branded cutlery are incredibly useful as well as sustainable. Billions of plastic forks, knives, spoons and bags work their way into the environment every year. Lunchboxes eliminate the need for zip-lock bags and bringing your own food to work, which means you are unlikely to be buying food wrapped in non-recyclable plastic. Brandelity produces a range of lunch boxes and cutlery made from materials such as bamboo, metal and ceramics. Our most popular lunchbox at the moment is the Steely Good Wood Lunch Box and our favourite cutlery set is our Eco To Go Travel Cutlery. Both come branded with your logo.
