Recently, our very own Beth Wilkerson, Factory Direct Promos General Manager, and Bill English, CEO of SBS Brands (FDP’s parent company) took a trip to our factory in China. The plan was to meet face to face with the folks at the factory, make sure all was well, check out new products and designs, and insure our relationship is strong in order to offer you our best quality and factory direct pricing. It was a great visit, we gained some valuable insight into the day-to-day operations at the factory and we’ve even got some photos to share that offer a peek inside the factory.

It is with great excitement that we tell you that the President today banned single use plastic bags from the United States! The announcement was made earlier today at a press conference and according to the President this ban will ‘set the United States on a path towards sustainability.’ The disposable bag ban is set to go into action on July 1, 2014 and will prohibit the distribution of single-use plastic bags at grocery and big box stores. Paper bags will be available for a 5-cent fee. Stores will keep the paper bag fee as it is intended to cover the expense stores incur when purchasing paper bags. Individuals on public assistance programs will be exempt from the fee.
