world water day sycal merchandise

World Water Day, celebrated annually on March 22nd, is a vital reminder of the precious resource that is water and the challenges we face in ensuring its accessibility and quality for all. This year, let’s leverage the power of branded merchandise to not only promote your business but also encourage positive change towards a more ocean-conscious future.

We all know the impact of single-use plastics on our oceans. But did you know the hidden water footprint of traditional promotional merchandise? Cotton production, a common material for t-shirts and tote bags, is a major culprit. According to WWF, a staggering 20,000 litres of water can be used to produce just one kilogram of cotton!

Fortunately, there are fantastic alternatives that promote your brand while minimizing environmental impact. Here at Sycal, we offer a wide range of ocean-conscious options to elevate your World Water Day campaign.

Recycled Cotton Bags: Our selection of recycled cotton tote bags, duffel bags, and backpacks are not only stylish but also significantly reduce water usage compared to virgin cotton. Opting for recycled cotton can save a staggering 765,000 litres of water per tonne compared to conventional production.

Impact Aware Collection: This dynamic range of merchandise, including bags, clothing, umbrellas, and drinkware, is crafted from recycled PET (plastic bottles) and cotton. But the impact goes beyond the materials. Two per cent of proceeds from every Impact Aware product are donated directly to, a non-profit organization working to bring clean water to communities in need. What’s more, each item boasts full supply chain traceability, allowing you and your customers to see the positive journey your branded merchandise takes.

Choosing an Impact Aware RPET drawstring bag not only reduces plastic waste but also saves 1.41 litres of water compared to a standard plastic bag. The entire Impact Aware collection, from hats and t-shirts to drinkware, contributes to water conservation efforts, making it a perfect choice for any eco-conscious campaign.

Reusable drinkware is a staple for any environmentally conscious individual. At Sycal, we’ve taken it a step further by offering a diverse selection of sustainable and recycled materials. These options include:

  • Recycled Plastic Bottles
  • Recycled Waste Materials
  • Wheat Straw
  • Sustainable Bamboo

Our H2O Eco screw cap bottle takes eco-friendly drinkware to a whole new level. Made with Prevented Ocean Plastic – recycled plastic collected from coastlines before it pollutes our oceans – each bottle is a champion for a cleaner future. Purchasing an H2O Eco bottle not only keeps plastic out of our oceans but also provides a source of income for those collecting the waste.

Sycal’s ocean-conscious merchandise allows you to fully customise designs with your branding, ensuring your logo is showcased on a practical, sustainable product. This creates a powerful marketing tool that promotes your business while also advocating for a crucial environmental cause.

While World Water Day is a designated time to raise awareness, the need for sustainable practices is constant. By incorporating ocean-conscious merchandise into your marketing strategy, you can send a powerful message year-round, demonstrating your commitment to environmental responsibility.
