Celebrate Earth Day With An Eco-Friendly Key Chain Promotion

For more than four decades, we’ve celebrated the planet that sustains us by bringing awareness to the damage we do and promoting safer, eco-friendly practices. Earth Day has evolved from a political statement spearheaded by a single man to a worldwide celebration. For companies that encourage environmentally safe policies, it’s the perfect opportunity to share your views with employees, customers and more.
Bring Awareness To Your Community
Passionate about sustainability? Share your vision for a better world with your community, and secure your company’s spot as a protector of the environment with a colorful, clever giveaway. Tie it in with a picnic or other family-friendly event, and you can easily turn Earth Day into an annual celebration that employees, customers and community members look forward to — and buzz about — every year.
Whether you choose to help out as a sponsor for an existing event or host your own celebration, custom key chains are the perfect giveaway. Because they’re both beautiful and useful, they’re often more appreciated than other items — and less likely to be tossed in a drawer or thrown away. Not only that, but your brand message is front and center every time your recipient runs an errand or goes to work, so it serves as a constant reminder of you and your business.
For retail stores, that can mean you are the first thought when your customer is in a buying mood. Professional service providers such as dentists, exterminators and lawn-care providers get more exposure than traditional advertising will bring. And manufacturing facilities? You’ll gain favor with the community for promoting eco-friendly policies that protect their neighborhoods.
Choosing The Right Style
Regardless of your message and company style, key chains are available to fit your needs. Brightly colored cloisonné is a standout, and lets you perfectly recreate your logo in stunning detail. Die struck offers the look of engraved metal for a more sophisticated and elegant style. And offset printing captures a photo or poster in miniature. Whether you prefer a classic design or a little lighthearted fun, you can easily create a key chain to match.
Ordering is fast and easy, too. Be sure you choose a manufacturer that offers free design work so you don’t have to worry about hiring a graphic artist to get started. Also, work with a supplier that uses either brass, iron or copper as the base metal. Other choices won’t stand up to the wear and tear that key chains take, and you want yours to last. Remember, too, that the manufacturing process will take about seven to ten days, so choose a company that offers quick turnaround and air shipping. The last thing you want is for your Earth Day giveaway to arrive just in time for your 4th of July celebration.
Key chains are a great complement to your Earth Day plans. Always appreciated by recipients and useful to boot, they’ll make your brand look good for years to come.
