Eco Friendly Drinkware and Tableware for Work & Home

What do we know about the word "Eco Friendly" actually mean? According to Merriam Webster, the official definition of Eco Friendly is Not Environmentally Harmful. So, Eco Friendly products mean merchandise made out of materials that are not harmful to the environment, reusable, and merchandise that are packaged in biodegradable boxes or tubes or containers. What is the difference with Eco Sustainable products? This is where Eco Sustainable products involve wider eco friendly business commitment and activities along the way, not just the material and packaging of a merchandise. The definition of Sustainable Products are merchandise that provide environmental, social and economic benefits, while protecting public health over their whole life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal (source:Sustainable products - Wikipedia). To illustrate the environmentally friendly and sustainability benefits, we include some information below about how each group of products offer real commercial and measurable financial values:

  1. Customer Satisfaction
  2. Dual Focus: environmentally not harmful as well as ecological and social significance
  3. Product Life Cycle focus: sustainable products are environmentally friendly throughout their entire life cycles.
  4. Measurable improvements: in terms of socio-ecological performance, sustainable products contribute positively to human and animal socio ecological life worldwide
  5. Continuous improvements: using technologies, sustainable products should also continuously improve in 2 areas, social and environmental variation
  6. Competing with plastic: sustainable products may evolve as 1st choice over competing product offers made out of plastic

The above 6 characteristics of sustainable products are as per scope of definition by Belz, Frank-Martin and Peattie, K (2009) Sustainability Marketing: A Global Perspective. Wiley, United Kingdom. Further, M & M Professionals is home of ProDezign, which offer Sustainable Product design services for Custom Branded Eco Promo Products.

Wheat is a type of grain that’s most often used to make bread, flour or wheat-gluten. Wheat straw is what’s left over once the wheat is harvested and using it in plastic production is an ideal zero-waste option. When wheat straw is used to make plastic, it becomes compostable and can decompose in a home or commercial site. As it decomposes at a rate similar to paper, wheat straw plastic leaves behind no toxic material, so the compost can be used for future plant growth. this plastic is entirely biodegradable. In your home compost, it takes 3 to 6 months to fully compost, but using a city program, that time period is lowered to 1 or 2 months. It’s renewable and sustainable. Since these plastic products are completely natural, they can be decomposed and used as fertilizer. They can also be melted back into pulp to create different products again and again. Wheat straw is very versatile and can be used for many different products. Wheat straws can also be used to create paper. This material can replace paper typically used for disposable cups, plates, etc. By using agricultural waste, there is no need to chop down forests to get the needed materials. Since plastic made from wheat straw is very durable and heat-resistant, it’s a great material to make Promo Eco Friendly Lunch Boxes and Drink Bottles.

Unfortunately, traditional curbside recycling programs will not recycle your metal water bottle. The main reason is that these recycling programs crush and bale material for easy transport from MRF Material Recycling Facility. Usually, your stainless steel drink bottles can’t be crushed just like that. Whilst your stainless steel water bottles can last over 12 years, if you want to recycle them earlier, you just need to find the nearest scrap metal yard. Otherwise, you might be able to repurpose your old metal bottles as these practical solutions below:

  • to store dry-food mixes for camping trip, such as pancake mix, so it is convenient to mix later without spoon just by adding water into the bottle, when you are ready.
  • to water indoor plants
  • spare coins holder
  • recycled pot holder for the garden or anywhere in the house
  • stationery organiser

Glass is a naturally resource efficient material which is made of abundant natural raw material such as sand and glass waste (cullets). Glass is a sustainable material which provides great environmental benefits such as contributing to mitigating climate change and saving precious natural resources. It is also highly appreciated in many applications for its inert nature and its contributions to safeguarding people’s health ad well being. Glass preserves taste and vitamins. As an inert material, it guarantees that food and beverages placed in glass containers and drinkware are not stained by the packaging. As long as you avoid using glass as a single-use item. Using second-hand or recycled glass items if you need to serve drinks such as Mason Jars, is a more Eco Sustainable way of life.

Glass is 100% fully recyclable material that can be recycled in close loop over and over again. If you recycle glass, it will almost always be turned into new glass. This is cool. It’s important to remember that glass has an unlimited life when you keep recycling it. The amount of solid waste produced by the glass industries during manufacturing is extremely low in the glass industries as almost all glass waste (cullets) are immediately recycled and put back to furnaces to serve as raw material. Thanks to glass recycling, significant amounts of raw materials are saved and natural resources are preserved. Glass recycling also helps in saving energy as cullets melt at a lower temperature than raw materials. Consequently, less energy is required for the melting process.

Jute fibre is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, and does not create toxic gas when burned. This means most jute products such as shopping bags and carry bags, can also go straight back into the compost or recycle them in your garden beds as weed matting. Growing jute is eco-friendly. There's minimal need for poisonous chemicals such as pesticides and fertilisers to keep the bugs away as it has natural pest resistant. Jute fibres range in length from one to four metres. Jute stems are cut, then bundled together in packs, before being soaked in water for periods of time to separate and loosen the fibres. This is called biological retting. Once this is done, the outer non-fibrous matter is scraped off, and then the softened fibres can be pulled straight out from inside the jute stem. It's a time consuming process but occurs without polluting the earth with toxic chemicals. These fibres are then processed into threads, which are then woven together to make jute ropes. Jute bags are a sustainable promo product. M & M Professionals is the home of ProDezign concept, with Australian, Earth and New Zealand design jute bags

Can Reusable Promo Wood Products be Recycled ?

In general, wood is a recyclable resource. You only need to search the statistics on the internet to learn how much wood and paper we throw away each year. These wasted woods can provide enough heat for 100,000,000 families! However, very few people know what to do with their old wooden furniture and wooden products. Basically, you will need to know what kinds of wood are recyclable, and how we should recycle wood. Also, you don’t recycle every type of wood exactly the same way. For wooden products, the recycling steps might vary. Usually, wooden products are made of varnished or treated wood. Burning treated wood will cause even more problems than dumping it. The paint will release harmful chemicals like Arsenic, Teflon, Mercury, and Lead. So, the best thing to do with old unwanted wooden products are to donate them or sell them as second-hand items. You might not want the old wooden products, but they might be valuable to other people. Or, you can check with local councils to see if your wooden products are safe enough to be discarded into landfill. If you have a large amount of raw wood that is wasted (materials that have not been painted, varnished, stained or chemically treated), you can contact your local recycling service center to see if they would accept this type of wood. At the licensed plant, wasted raw wood can be turned into various useful resources. For example, wood can be reused as wood pulp to make paper, and wasted timber can be treated as a type of fuel just like wooden pellets. Untreated timber waste is processed into woodchips for use in the horticultural, agricultural and urban amenity markets. Click here to see what other Wooden Promo Products can be branded.
