Promotional Eco Pens
Ecological issues are more important to UK businesses than every before. Many companies have drawn up strict eco friendly policies to work by. It is little wonder therefore that many business people have begun to ask for eco friendly corporate merchandise to promote their companies. The most popular and sought after eco friendly business gift is the promotional pen.
Eco friendly promotional pens are very popular because they are easy to hand out and they are of course very useful. Most people use a pen on a daily basis so your eco gift will not be thrown away as other less useful products might. Your eco friendly gift pens will remain in your customer's office for all to see. If they are printed with your logo and contact details, your customers will think of your company whenever they pick up the pen to write. How is that for brand awareness!
Eco pens have improved a lot over the past few years. There is now a very large selection to choose from. The pens are manufactured in a number of interesting materials such as old tyres, corn starch, old CD cases, newspapers and even old pens. The corn starch pens are biodegradable so be careful with them. If you put them in water or soil they will eventually disappear.
Using eco friendly pens in you promotions does not only make ecological sense, it also demonstrates to your customers that you are serious about environmental issues. Showing your awareness of our environment will show not only your customers but your employees that do not take eco issues lightly.
One thing that must be said about ecologically friendly pens is that they look really good. The new styles do not look any different than normal plastic pens. It may therefore be necessary to print something on the pen about what it is made of. Something like 'I used to be a Tyre' or 'I am made out of corn starch' will go down well and ensure that your customer knows that they are receiving an environmentally friendly business gift.
Going to the extra effort to find a eco friendly pen that is right for your company will take some searching. Once you find your pen of choice, you can expect to pay up to 20% more than a comparable plastic pen. This price will go down as more and more people begin to realise how important green issues are and insist on purchasing only eco friendly corporate merchandise.
