April 20, 2023

As consumers become more conscious of their impact on the environment, businesses are continuing to expand on sustainable alternatives to traditional promotional products. It’s been encouraging to see the growth this category has experienced in recent years and our team is passionate about discovering and sharing these new products! In anticipation of Earth Day coming up on April 22, we recently released our new Sustainable Swag Lookbook to customers. But we won’t keep all the good ideas to ourselves, so read on for a sneak peek into what’s included!

From reusable drinkware and office supplies made from recycled materials to organic cotton t-shirts and home goods, we’ve included a wide range of products to suit your needs. Each item has been carefully chosen for its sustainability credentials, so you can be confident that your promotional efforts are in line with your values.

By choosing sustainable swag, you’re not only reducing waste and minimizing your carbon footprint, but you’re also making a statement about your commitment to sustainability. And with so many sleek and practical options to choose from, there’s no need to sacrifice style for sustainability.

So whether you’re looking to promote your brand at a trade show, give out gifts to employees, or show appreciation to customers, our sustainable swag products are the perfect choice.

For more ideas, you can also filter the Printfection swag catalog to find our curated eco-friendly and give-back promotional products. Printfection customers can get in touch with their dedicated Customer Success Manager to receive the Sustainable Swag Lookbook (filled with more than double the products shared here!) or request additional help with swag recommendations.
