Our selection includes everything from Sprout Pencils to seed paper bookmarks, with all items perfectly printed with your design. 

And not only are plantable promotional products a great way to align your business with environmentally aware practices but they also offer a fantastic way to keep your brand in the minds of your customers long after your last interaction with them.

What Are The Benefits Of Picking Plantable Promotional Products?

There are numerous good reasons for choosing plantable items when you're planning your next awareness drive, ranging from health factors to corporate benefits. Some of the strongest incentives for choosing plantable merch include...

  • Environmental sustainability: Plantable promotional products align with the growing trend of eco-consciousness among consumers, including your customers. Choosing these products can demonstrate a commitment to reducing environmental impact, contributing positively to your corporate social responsibility (CSR) profile.
  • Positive brand visibility: Plantable products offer a unique and memorable way to promote your brand. Whether it's a seed packet with your logo, a business card embedded with seeds or seed-infused pencils or bookmarks, these items stand out and create a lasting impression. As they grow into plants, they serve as ongoing reminders of your brand, fostering continued engagement.
  • Health benefits: Receiving a plantable promotional product can have positive effects on the health of your recipients. Planting and nurturing seeds or seed-infused items can provide a therapeutic outlet, reducing stress and anxiety levels. Engaging in activities related to gardening or caring for plants has been shown to boost mood and overall well-being, making plantable promotional products not just a marketing tool but also a source of wellness for recipients. It's also been shown that indoor plants in an office or home can help to reduce carbon dioxide levels - another win. 

Sound good? Explore our full range of plantable promotional products or read on to take a look at some of our favourites to consider for your brand this spring.
