How To Go Eco With Promotional Hygiene Products

Want to add an eco-friendly touch to your health-related marketing campaign - or perhaps looking for a way to 'go green' when it comes to ensuring your staff and customers are safe from the threat of germs? 

Whatever the situation, Total Merchandise is here to help. Whilst we have a wide range of promotional face masks, branded hand sanitiser and social distancing products available, we also have a selection of health and hygiene items that boast green credentials - as well as protective ones!

(Oh, and whilst we're on the subject: be sure to check out our full range of eco friendly promotional products. We've got over 500 eco giveaways available, ranging from branded stationery and printed bags to promotional mugs and custom tech.)


Arguably, many of our promotional hygiene items contribute towards green living practices. Our reusable branded face masks, for example, cut the need for single-use alternatives, whilst our refillable hand sanitiser products mean otherwise disposed of bottles can be given a new lease of life.

Similarly, some of our social distancing products can be safely recycled once no longer needed, helping to cut landfill, whilst others are UK-made, helping to reduce carbon footprints. In a nutshell: if you spot the green leaf symbol, you can be confident that a product is considered to contribute towards greener living practices in one way or another. 

Of course, it's not possible for all branded hygiene giveaways to have an eco tag attached to them; disposable face masks, for example, by their very nature are designed for one use only, typically in a medical setting, before being discarded.

With all that said, read on to discover our edit of the eco-friendly promotional hygiene items that can help promote your brand and protect your customers this summer. Need a hand?
