Your customer will definitely be drinking coffee or tea at least 3 x times a day Monday – Friday. What better opportunity to give them a branded eco-travel cup or eco-friendly bottle. Promotional. Your customer could be checking out your brand at least 15 times a week. This is a pretty good cost per impression. That’s the thing with well-chosen branded products they get used over and over again so your brand stays ‘top of mind’. So don’t let your customer get ‘Depresso’ and gift them with a branded reusable coffee cup branded up with your company logo / creative message.
The bonus of printing an eco-travel cup which is mainly used in the morning, works best because your promotion is in front of your customer’s first thing in the morning, meaning they’ll be more likely to remember your brand throughout the day.
Travel cups that are eco-friendly are always going to be more cost-effective than single-use cups. This is because you pay for something which will last for a long time. Customers can easily re-use their cups instead of constantly chucking and buying takeaway coffee cups every few months.
The bonus of reusable cups is that you can now use them at coffee shops. Many coffee shop chains, including Pret, Costa, and Starbucks, offer discounts to customers who bring their own cups. If you’re a regular coffee drinker, you could save more than £100 a year!
Hotter drinks all around.
Paper takeaway cups don’t offer much in the way of insulation, so your drink is likely to turn cold quickly, particularly when it’s chilly outside. The bonus of eco-travel cups means your drinks can stay hotter for longer with double insulated cup options.
Coffee is good.
Waking you up
Giving you creative energy
Coffee allows you to use your favourite branded drinkware
Coffee is a great way to catch up with colleagues and people watch
Coffee is a hand warmer
Coffee is great for brainstorming
We might be coffee biased but being British Indians we also love a good mug of Indian tea – Masala Chai which possesses some ayurvedic and health benefits. Indian Tea Masala is an aromatic blend of spices which includes Cloves which are high in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Green Cardamom which is also high in antioxidants, Black Peppercorns which is fabulous for digestion, nutrient absorption and adds a little kick to your tea, and then cinnamon which regulates blood sugar, adds natural sweetness, and finally, nutmeg which has the ability to relieve pain, improve indigestion and blood circulation! So your daily cuppa could be therapeutic. The addition of Ginger is popular too as it aids digestion, improves blood circulation, and generally perks people up. There is even the opportunity to pop in a recipe card for a heartwarming Masala Tea or Golden Turmeric Latte for a bespoke health and wellbeing marketing campaign. So whatever favourite drink your customer has, they will want to enjoy it in their favourite mug too. And the magnificent appeal of promotional products is that they create a warm fuzzy feeling for both the giver and recipient.
As well as staying at the forefront of your client’s mind, you are helping them get earth-friendly, creative and enjoy their hot drink with style and love. The highest emotion your brand can induce is LOVE. Travel Cups and bottles can be made from all sorts of materials that are eco-friendly, usable, and aesthetically beautiful to represent your brand values. Once printed up they look great and portray a fabulous eco message.
The Earth’s plastic problem hit a tipping point, which has prompted us all to improve our recycling efforts but single-use plastics are still an issue. Hence the eco-sustainable drinkware has increased in popularity for many companies who want to ensure their staff team and customers are using Their own branded Bottles, Cups, and Drinkware. The British Plastics Federation (BPF) found that the UK should and could be recycling three times as much plastic by 2030. But to achieve that goal, we all need to make some significant changes in how we purchase and consume items like water, coffee, or masala tea!
Reduce Reuse Recycle is the mantra in the Extravaganza Office. The main concern for brands is how their promotional products will be received and perceived. Too much plastic and ‘give-away feel will definitely give out the wrong message. We always advocate high-quality, repeat-use items which won’t end up in the junk drawer or landfill. Promotional eco-friendly drinkware is a sure-fire way to achieve this. Our mission with eco-friendly promotional products is to help reduce plastic waste and to directly contribute to a better life for the Global Community.
A Circular Economy is a new concept to design, make and use products within the limits of our planet’s resources. Extravaganza applies the three foundational principles of sustainability: reduce, reuse, recycle. Extravaganza is moving the linear economy into a circular economy: keeping products and materials in use. Keep the products going and going – reduce, reuse, recycle, regenerate.
Eco-friendly materials we source.
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant with timber specs. It grows to maturity in 5 years versus 30 – 120 years for timbers. After a bamboo plant is harvested, four to seven new plants will grow from its roots. No replanting necessary, just like that, made possible by nature. Bamboo is known for its hard surface, making it a robust and long-lasting material. Despite its hardness, it is very suitable to craft.
Glass is sustainable and composed of only natural resources. From abundant natural raw materials, such as sand. Glass is fully recyclable too. Metal – Copper vessels were used in ancient India to kill bacteria. Science confirms the health benefits of copper. The shape, design, and material of a copper bottle play a role in its health benefits. When we store water in a copper vessel for at least 8 hours, the copper ions dissolve in that water in small amounts. Termed as the Oligodynamic Effect, this water now has the potency to destroy harmful microbes, fungi, bacteria.
Recycled Coffee Grounds.
This has a real WOW factor. Eco-friendly travel cups made from coffee grounds and sugarcane. The cup even smells like coffee, which adds to the sensory experience. The Coffee Based material is a mixture of used coffee grounds and sugar cane ethanol. The used coffee grounds are a waste stream from the coffee industry or office environments.
(Also known as Polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, RPET is an abbreviation of Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate or PET. It is a type of plastic resin as well as a form of polyester. It can be fully recycled, in which case it becomes recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or RPET. RPET material can be certified by a GRS certification.
Cork is the bark of the self-regenerating cork oak tree. It is ranked among the most durable organic materials with the property of stabilising the air temperature and humidity. It is a very flexible material and has good adhesive properties, making it easy to use in combination with different materials. In general, the cork industry is regarded as one of the most environmentally friendly. Cork is 100% natural and biodegradable.
Many of our products are made of a bioplastic called PLA, which is an abbreviation for Poly Lactic Acid. This material is usually made from sugars and starch from corn or beet. Lactic acid is extracted from this, after which it is processed into a granulate. The products are characterised by their strength and transparency, as well as being 100% compostable and food safe. Because PLA is not heat resistant, it is only suitable for cold drinks and food. The production of PLA is very sustainable because the CO2 emissions are about 75% less than in the production of oil plastics. It is also certified compostable according to EN-13432 and will compost within 90 days in an industrial plant.
Promotional Reusable Bottles.
“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water” -wrote the anthropologist Loren Eisely. Water is the source of all life, the most important liquid in our ecosystem – all plants, insects, and animals cannot survive without it. It is important that we are mindful of water’s power, and that we remember to care for this pure, sacred substance.
Some of the water molecules we drink and bathe in are way old, as in more than 4.6 billion years old. As far as we know, new water hasn’t formed either. That means there’s a very high chance the water in your glass is what thirsty dinosaurs were gulping about 65 million years ago. It’s possible that you could drink the same water as a stegosaurus or a T-Rex because of the way water circulates around our planet.
Reusable bottles are becoming a staple item for the retail and promotional merchandise industry. Brands such as Chilly’s have turned the reusable hot cold bottle into a must-have fashion accessory. Super popular and trendy. The promotional merchandise industry is quick to follow the ‘retail’ trends and offer branded chilly-style bottles. High quality, long-lasting and can even be Pantone matched to your brand palette!
A reusable bottle is also a great way to promote health and wellbeing campaigns. Because water is SUPER SPECIAL & IMPORTANT! 60 to 70% of our body is water. Organs with high amounts of water are the lungs (83%), muscles and kidneys (79%), and the heart and brain (73%). Even the bones are for 31% water! Water is the source of life and when used as part of a marketing campaign using reusable promotional bottles it can create a value-driven, divine brand experience.
