Sustainability and merchandise are two words that are often considered enemies. In the past, event giveaways and general merchandise have been considered wasteful gimmicks that ultimately end up in landfill days after a given event.
Whilst there is still a lot of wasteful merchandise at business style events, we see a shift towards a more environmentally sustainable solution. Not only can you give away sustainable merchandise at your next conference, awards night, Christmas function, etc., but you can align with brands that are making a difference in the world through the usage of their product.
Brands such as Uppercup work off the model and ethos that collectively, everyone's small efforts of switching away from single-use products to a more sustainable reusable model will result in great change and positive impact.
Here are some reasons why using Uppercup as your next event giveaway and merchandise will benefit both your company and the environment:
1. Uppercup offers award-winning designs and works with leading printing partners to effectively put your companies logo at the forefront of consumers' minds and look great whilst doing it.
2. You will be supporting the local economy and small businesses through the whole manufacturing and supply process. Uppercup operates, manufacture, brand and assemble all components of their products within a 30km radius here in Melbourne, Australia. This not only ensures the highest quality control but also upholds the highest sustainability practice.
3. Uppercup promotional products are known brands in the wider market. This means that your attendees will have a much easier platform to utilize the products in the future after completing the event. With your brand alongside the known brands of Uppercup, the longevity of your marketing exercise is vastly improved.
