Recycled cotton tote bag

This tote bag’s material contains recycled cotton collected from garment-cutting waste blended with recycled polyester to produce a strong reusable bag. As a result, it combines practical style with a healthy respect for the planet!

We recommend tote bags to any company exhibiting at trade shows. Why?

Two reasons: first, the complimentary bags offered by many conference hosts woefully lack quality.

Second, many event goers need a bag to store collateral and other swag goodies acquired at the show.  They’ll gladly choose your nice bag over the cheap-o stuff.

This equates to hundreds of attendees carrying your brand’s name around the show floor and conference sessions. Not a bad thing!

Eco-friendly swag straw 

The creators of this great reusable straw designed it to collapse into a palm-sized travel case. It measures 2.87″ W x 1.30″ W x 1.06″ H. Durable stainless steel and medical grade silicone comprise the materials.

The compact folding design allows the full-size straw to fit inside a palm-sized travel case and cleanup is simple using the provided squeegee.

Lightweight, small, durable, useful, eco-friendly — this handy straw checks all the boxes!
