Earth Day 2024: Planet vs Plastics —There’s Still Time to Order Your Custom Branded Promotional Items
Promotional items are always effective at growing your brand, but they hold a special significance on Earth Day. Help your business go green, connect with customers, and celebrate the planet by creating a custom promotional item for Earth Day. Here’s everything you need to know about Earth Day and custom promotional products.
Earth Day History
Earth Day is Monday, April 22, 2024. This annual event started as a way to unite the environmental movement while raising awareness of the cause. The day was proposed in 1969, and the first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. In 1990, Earth Day went global, and this day is marked by events held worldwide. Earth Day has continued to unite and raise awareness since that very first year.
Planet vs. Plastics
The theme for Earth Day 2024 is Planet vs. Plastics. The organization has set the goal of reducing plastic production by 60% by 2040. Plastic is bad for the planet and even harmful to people. Recycling helps eliminate litter and keep useful materials out of landfills, but switching to reusable items is also significant. EarthDay.org has put together a lot of information about the health risks surrounding plastics and how you can demand change.
How You Can Help
Every effort to improve the planet helps. You may feel your efforts don’t matter, but you have an impact. You can help by recycling everything you use when possible. Recycling plastic certainly matters, but recycling glass, metal, paper, cardboard, and electronics also matters. Take things further and consider joining local clean-up efforts to beautify your community.
Properly disposing of the items you use is significant, but take things even further and opt for reusable products when possible. One reusable grocery bag eliminates hundreds, if not thousands of single-use plastic bags. Reusable water bottles make disposable plastic bottles unnecessary and obsolete. Small choices and actions add up and have a major impact.
How Your Brand Can Help
Custom reusable promotional items are a great way to promote your brand on Earth Day and every day. Reusable products are designed for repeated use, meaning your branding message will get a lot of exposure. Your customers will use fewer disposable products after they get their hands on your reusable gear. All of our products are also made from recycled or sustainable materials to lessen their environmental impact.
Place Your Order
We offer two ways to order custom reusable products, like grocery bags. Our in-stock selection provides a faster turnaround. These items have already been manufactured and are ready for your custom logo or artwork to be imprinted. If you want to secure custom bags or branded reusable water bottles in time for Earth Day 2024, our in-stock lineup is your best choice.
We also offer custom and bulk ordering. Enjoy a higher level of customization or secure much larger quantities at a lower unit price when you take advantage of custom/bulk orders. Your items will be made to order, so the turnaround time is longer—around 90 days—when using custom and bulk ordering. Custom ordering is a great way to create something unique and even more affordable, but you need to allow more time for manufacturing.
