Featured Item: Soybean Cotton Jersey Polo

Did you know that it takes 300 gallons of water to grow enough cotton to make one cotton t-shirt?  Or that 4 million tons of textile waste or discarded every day - the average American alone throwing away approximately 68 pounds alone? These days there are surprisingly numerous - and fashionable - apparel options available to consumers wishing to make more environmentally conscious choices. Bags, shorts, blankets, jackets and more are available in a variety of fabrics which are designed to reduce your footprint.  We have access to organic cotton, recycled polyester, bamboo-based fabrics - even apparel and accessories made from recycled plastic bottles.

We love these Men's and Ladies' polos.  Not only are the comfortable and sharp looking, but they are made of a combination of cotton, spandex and azlon - a soybean-based protein used to make fabric.  Another upside?  Azlon has natural wicking properties, so you will stay cooler and drier in these shirts than your average cotton or poly polo.  To order these, or other earth-friendly apparel, contact us today.

Brand Your Business: Promote your Eco-Friendly Business in Kind

It may be Earth Week, but businesses and individuals are showing more environmental consciousness and responsibility every week of the year these days.  If you have a environmentally-friendly bend to your group or organization - or just want to generally promote your business while also promoting a message of eco-responsibility, there are literally hundreds of promo options available to you.  We think that this bookmark pen is pretty cool.  Not only is it useful and memorable (always a plus when choosing a promotional product) but the pen is made from cornstarch and both items are  made from over 65% biodegradable materials.   To order this, or any other eco-promo products, contact us today.
