Sustainable Event Merchandise: Swag with a Conscience

You know that feeling when you’re at an event and you’re handed a branded t-shirt or a water bottle that ends up in your junk drawer? Yeah, we’ve been there too. The usual event merch isn’t exactly doing the planet any favors. They’re usually made from non-sustainable materials, and we all know that’s not helping the growing concern about waste and pollution. 

But fear not, sustainable event merchandise is here to save the day! Not only does it show that you care about the planet, but it’s also a great way to stand out from the crowd (in a good way, of course). So, time to switch things up and go for eco-friendly swag that’s both stylish and environmentally conscious.

  1. Reusable Water Bottles

Say goodbye to plastic water bottles and hello to the reusable kind made from materials like stainless steel or glass. They’re not only better for the planet, but they can also be customized with your event branding or messaging. Plus, your attendees will love showing off their new swag.

  1. Tote Bags

Tote bags are a classic event swag item, but let’s switch it up and make them eco-friendly. Choose bags made from organic cotton or recycled plastic that your attendees will actually want to use again and again.

  1. Bamboo Utensils

If your event includes food and beverage service, provide bamboo utensils instead of plastic utensils. Bamboo is a sustainable and biodegradable material that can be reused multiple times. Bonus points if you add your event logo to them and they look pretty cool!

  1. Seed Paper

Seed paper is like a gift that keeps on giving. It’s made from recycled paper and embedded with seeds that your attendees can take home as a souvenir and plant after the event. It’s a unique and sustainable way to give your attendees a little something to remember your event by.

  1. Eco-Friendly Apparel

Offer sustainable apparel as event merchandise by using materials such as organic cotton or recycled polyester. You can also consider eco-friendly printing methods such as water-based inks instead of traditional screen printing. Your attendees will love wearing them, and the planet will thank you.

  1. Upcycled Products

Upcycling is the ultimate way to turn trash into treasure. Partner with a company specializing in upcycling to create unique event merchandise items such as bags, wallets, or phone cases. Not only are they sustainable, but they’re also one-of-a-kind.
Sustainable event merchandise is the bee’s knees. It shows that you’re not just a party planner, but a planet protector too. Your attendees will appreciate your thoughtfulness, and you’ll stand out as the coolest event planner on the block. Let’s get those creative juices flowing, have some fun, and make our events as eco-friendly as possible! Who said saving the planet can’t be a party?
