Impact the planet this Earth Day

Choose planet positive promotional merchandise

This year we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day, with 2022’s theme focusing on the slogan ‘Invest in our Planet‘. Earth Day isn’t only designed to raise awareness but supports a series of projects to invoke change for conservation, restoration, climate change, plastic pollution and the environment.

By swapping your traditional promotional products for eco-friendly counterparts and alternatives, your next order could actually help the planet. By investing in your brand, you can invest in our planet.

Merchandise to end plastic pollution

As of 2021, there is at least 165 billion kilograms of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. This amount of plastic has devastating effects on our ocean’s wildlife and ecosystem.

At Sycal, we have a great selection of products that are not only made of recycled plastic but also help stop plastic pollution. These featured products help recycle plastic before it enters our oceans but they also support charities and communities around the world.

The Ocean Bottle is an insulated vacuum thermal bottle made from recycled plastic and stainless steel. The recycled plastic used to produce this bottle is sourced from the Plastic Bank charity. Plastic Bank ensures that the plastic waste is collected by locals living in coastal communities and helps support their communities and families financially. Each bottle funds the collection of 11.4kg of plastic, which is the equivalent of 1000 plastic bottles.

Another product that supports the Plastic Bank charity is our Ocean Socks. These socks are, again, made from 94% of the plastic that is collected from the coastlines and prevented from entering the ocean. You can customise the entire sock as well as the header card with your branding to create a unique eco-friendly gift.

Our H2O Eco bottle range supports another plastic prevention charity, ‘Prevented Ocean Plastic‘. Similarly to Plastic Bank, Prevented Ocean Plastic also collects plastic waste from coastlines before it enters the ocean and provides financial stability to its workers.

The H2O bottle comes in four different styles and is made from 100% recycled plastic. The bottles are also made in the UK to help reduce your carbon footprint and help recycle waste from our waters. Add your logo as a full screen colour wrap and showcase your branding on a sustainable sports bottle.

Our recycled plastic range continues to grow and covers a wide range of products from clothing, bags, stationery and tech so we can help you switch any type of merchandise into something more eco-conscious.

Gifts to help boost the bees

Approximately 75% of the world’s crops depend on pollinators, like bees. The destruction of their habitats and climate change are just a couple of factors that are affecting the decline in the bee population.

Many assume bees live in hives, however, many species live in trees and while many paper products can be FSC Certified, 80,000 acres of forests are cut down in just one day. By switching to paper products that include seeds for flowers and are manufactured using recycled paper you can help the bee population flourish and stop the elimination of their habitats.

At Sycal, we offer a range of seeded products including button badges, envelopes and business cards. These products are 100% biodegradable and only leave behind wildflower seeds to grow.

If helping the bees is something you’d like to support further we also offer other seed filled products to help encourage wildflower growth. Whether you’re looking to provide a unique giveaway item or add some life to the office garden, seeded products come in a range of budgets for any occasion.

As well as supporting bees, flowers also absorb carbon too. You may be supporting a charity by planting trees, however, you can also consider investing in wildflowers and office spaces with promotional plants.

Our Green Balls come in a matchstick style box that slides open to reveal clay and pleat compost balls filled with wildflower seeds. There’s no need to dig, just simply spread onto a bare flower bed and wait for them to grow. The box is made from 100% recycled cardboard with a sticker you can brand on top.

While promotional plants help support bees and the environment, they’ll also ensure that customers remember your brand every time they see their garden grow!
