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.
As you can imagine, Earth Day is sort of a big deal around here at Factory Direct Promos and in honor of this special day, we are offering an amazing sale for the entire month of April that will allow you to customize one of our most popular reusable shopping bags for an unheard of price.
Pinterest is a great collection of information and ideas and we can easily fill hours searching and pinning, but we had to pause when we found TerraCycle’s page and all of their great boards.

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.
There are so many drawbacks when it comes to using single use plastic bags from the economic to the environmental that it makes me wonder why more businesses and consumers are not on board with going reusable. Disposable plastic bags harm the planet and your bottom line and there is just no reason to continue to use these bags when there are so many great reusable shopping bag options available. Doing so is just plain crazy!
