More and more businesses are becoming aware of their carbon footprint and negative impact on the environment and they are taking steps to counteract or balance their carbon emissions. One of the most recent way to help combat this is to switch to green or eco friendly promotional items!

Every business at some point will use promotional items to promote their company, service or brand and with the introduction of eco friendly promotional items it is now possible to do this and reduce their carbon footprint. Eco friendly promotional items are made from recycled materials or materials that do not have a negative impact on the environment. Instead of using newly manufactured materials they opt for a recycled version. The eco products have exactly the same promotional impact with their clients but with the added benefit of promoting a green and ethical business message. Everyone likes to be seen to be green and to be playing their part in the fight against global warming.

One of the most popular items to come out of the Far East in recent times is the eco usb. These portable storage devices allow users to drag and drop documents from their computer onto the memory of the flash drive and take it with them wherever they go i.e home or on business trips. The eco usb products feature a shell made from recycled plastic or in some cases bamboo. Bamboo is a very popular option and the bamboo is often sourced from sustainable sources. In fact bamboo is one of the fastest growing woody plants on the planet and some species can grown up to 1 metre per day!

The eco usb flash drives like all promotional products can be custom printed with your company logo and are a great way of promoting a green message. They are often used to hand out at events or exhibitions and the internal memory can also be uploaded with a company logo or presentation. If your company has considered purchasing flash drives in recent times then take a look at the range of eco usb products as an alternative. They work in exactly the same way but you can be sure that you will be playing your part in keeping the planet green!

The idea of eco versions of promo usb flash drives sounds interesting. From a promotional standpoint, you could say how the company is thinking of the environment and trying to be more responsible for the state of our ecosystem. I think it could very well be something that takes off in the near future.
