Perfect for adding a sweet touch to any upcoming event presence your business has planned, these eco chocolate bars are produced in the UK and are wrapped inside sustainably sourced packaging.

Once they've finished scoffing the delicious chocolate within, your customers are free to recycle or compost the packaging, which, by the way, will be printed with your design in dazzling full colour. 

GRS Recycled Caps

🌿 Partly made from GRS certified recycled cotton 🌿

These cool promotional caps are available to order in five different shades and can be printed with your design in up to four colours; for an extra-smart touch, you can even opt to have your logo embroidered. 

Each cap is made from 50% cotton and 50% GRS certified recycled cotton, resulting in a finished product that's as sustainable as it is stylish. 

Eco Pop Trolley Coin Keyrings

🌿 Made in the UK from recycled plastic 🌿

These handy promo keyrings offer a long-lasting opportunity for meaningful brand awareness. All you need to do is choose from the rainbow of colours they're available in and then decide whether you want your design printed to one or both sides.

They're also available to order made from recycled and biodegradable plastic (rHIPS.b) at a small extra cost - get in touch if you'd like to find out more.

Brockley Fruit & Veg Bags

🌿 Made using organic and Fairtrade cotton, and Oekotex 100 certified 🌿 

A must-consider for retail environments, these cotton mesh bags offer a great alternative to single-use plastic carrier bags. Each bag is made from organic and Fairtrade cotton, with your branding printed in up to full colour for unmissable brand awareness with every outing. 

Recycled 5oz Cotton Tote Bags

🌿 Made from 5oz recycled fabric, with approximately 80% recycled cotton 🌿

Looking for high-impact and long-lasting brand awareness? It doesn't come much better than promotional tote bags, and these recycled options are a great choice. 

Available in four stylish shades (we love that recycled red), they can be ordered today from as little as 50 units and printed with your design in up to full colour.  

Americano Eco Part Recycled Coffee Cups

🌿 Made from 100% recycled PP Plastic 🌿

Whether your target audience are on-the-go commuters or you're a hospitality business looking to offer an eco-aware takeaway option for tea and coffee, our reusable coffee cups are a great shout. Take your pick from a wide range of lid colours and two cup colours, with your design printed in up to four colours.

The cup and its lid are both made from recycled PP plastic, while the cup is also recycled. Both can be easily recycled in kerbside collections when your customers no longer need them - although thanks to their reusable nature, we suspect that will be a way off.

These smart retro-style promotional sunglasses are made from recycled PET plastic. Available to order today from just 50 units, they can be printed with your branding in up to four colours on one or both arms for a subtle hint of brand awareness with every wear.
