As global warming becomes an increasingly hot topic, many companies are getting serious about adopting practices that minimize their impact on the environment. Earth Day – April 22nd – is the perfect opportunity to promote your company’s green-ness to customers and the community. Here are a few ways you can do this affordably with our products. 

Eco-Friendly Lanyards

Our line of Earth-friendly lanyards are made from corn (yes, corn!). They’re 100% biodegradable, with a decomposition time of 2 to 3 years after being buried underground. Just like our original lanyards, these can be customized with your company or store’s logo and colors. Hand them out to booth visitors at trade shows, gift them to customers who spend over a certain amount, or include them in a “welcome swag bag” for new clients. You can also give them to students, teachers, and staff to celebrate the fact that your learning institution is environmentally responsible.

Lapel Pins

  • To promote your Earth-friendly business practices: Have cardstock created on recyclable paper, with information about your company’s green practices. Your lapel pin can feature your name and logo along with a special Earth Day slogan.
  • To announce new eco-friendly policies: If you’ve just rolled out green policies at your place of business, Earth Day is a great time to announce it! A custom-designed lapel pin can effectively get your message out to customers and local community without generating a lot of paper waste. It makes a great complement to your advertising or marketing campaign.
  • To reward customers who recycle: When customers return reusable packaging or containers to your business, it saves you money and helps save our planet. On Earth Day (or that whole week), present recycling customers with a custom lapel pin for their hat or clothing. They’ll feel appreciated with this “thank you” token, and your business will get extra publicity when they wear it!
  • To inspire others to be more green. Is your business a model for eco-friendliness? If your team speaks at conferences, holds workshops, or attends trade shows regularly, hand out custom lapel pins with an “earthy” message on it to all your attendees. Every time they look at it, they’ll be reminded of your mission.


Green Silicone Wristbands: Are your students or youth group members taking part in a special Earth Day activity? Recognize their participation with fun, trendy silicone wristbands emblazoned with an inspirational message. These bracelets are made of durable, snap-proof silicone that’s seamless for a high-quality look and feel. Plus, they come in an array of styles kids and teens love–including swirled, debossed, and even glow in the dark!

Our promotional products can be tailored to your exact specifications – so that they accurately represent your vision and brand. Best of all, they’re available at a price that fits virtually any budget. If you want to get your green message out to the world, Earth Day and Signature Pins make a great combination!
