Plastic straws are being ditched by many restaurants and food service partners for re-useable options. It's the final straw for many consumers - saving the turtles and other ocean creatures has become a high priority. Plastic pollution and marine debris is a serious problem that isn't going away without a global shift in humanity's relationship with single-use plastics.
At Promotional Partners, we love innovation and what's more innovative than creating fabric from single use plastic bottles? Yep, using ocean-bound plastic transformed to create clothing fibers that leading brands use to make products for consumers is a super innovative way to recycle plastic!
What's the brand? Repreve! An unforgettable reusable bag that was designed as a simple solution to combat single-use waste, and has since grown into a movement.
Partnerships & Giving Back are important to Promotional Partners. We've partnered with another local woman-owned business in Historic Downtown Apex to put a spotlight on efforts to convert to sustainable choices. The Town of Apex is hosting the 1st Annual EarthFest on Saturday April 23rd. Owner of Elk Local Foods, Lora Neel & our owner Olivia Scott partnered up for local visitors of EarthFest to win some cool sustainable coolers.
There are two styles offered to winners: A tote style cooler or this stylish 12 can cooler, both are a great size for carrying all your lunch necessities. Both bags are made with recycled material and through a partnership with 1% For The Planet, one percent of sales of this and all EcoSmart products will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.
How can you win? It's simple. Attend EarthFest and then stroll downtown to support local businesses. When you make a purchase at Elk Local Foods, you'll score a sustainable beeswax lip balm, with a case made from potatoes, and be entered to win both cooler bags. You'll also learn more about ways to be sustainable by attending the event. Your bags will be supporting efforts with 1% For The Planet and you'll be supporting 100% local, woman- owned businesses, so mark your calendars!
