The Best Promotional Products To Tie-In With Recycle Week 2019

Recycle Week is kicking off soon (23-29 September 2019, to be precise), meaning there's no better time to add some eco-credentials to your marketing campaign.

Promotional merchandise is consistently proven to be one of the most effective ways to advertise a brand (according to BPMA research, 80% of consumers will remember a business after receiving a promotional product) and Total Merchandise is pleased to offer a wide range of products that are all recycled in origin. 

From recycled notebooks to pens made from repurposed materials, we have a huge selection of branded items that demonstrates neatly that what goes around really does come back around!

What Is Recycle Week 2019?

Now in its 17th year, Recycle Week shines a light on the power and importance of recycling, with the target of encouraging the public to try and be as recycle-efficient as they can be. The long-term goal? To make recycling the norm. The short-term target? To generate as much awareness around Recycle Week as possible.  

With environmental concerns more pressing than ever before, this year's event is tipped to be the biggest yet. The week-long event even has a theme, with 'Recycling. It's in our own hands' the mantra inspiring the 2019 action.

Recycle Week is organised by the Waste and Resources Action Programme, a UK charity which runs the event under the Recycle Now brand.

Why Should My Business Get Involved In Recycle Week?

The conversation around environmental issues has been getting louder and louder over the last few years - 'single-use' was even named 2018's Word of the Year by Collins Dictionary! 

From a business perspective, engaging with events such as Recycle Week is a great way to not only make a difference but to also demonstrate that your brand cares. With a company's corporate social responsibility hugely important to many customers (with recent research revealing 94% of Generation Z-ers believing companies should 'address critical issues'), participation in topical events is a great way to show your business has a conscience.
