Sustainable and Recycled Products...

We can provide a vast range of organic and recycled products, clothing and workwear to suit pretty much every need.

Organic Clothing and Workwear...

When we’re constantly being told that plastic is suffocating the world, the climate is changing for the worse and that we are all... DOOOOMED!!!

What do we need to do to turn this around for future generations?

With environmental responsibility laying heavily on our shoulders it makes total sense for our businesses to demonstrate it takes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seriously.

One of my clients is in aviation, and I asked them, “Have you considered using earth positive sustainable products or clothing?” they said, “Well we’re one of the biggest polluters, so how would that help!” I replied, “There is nothing you can do about what you do, we all need aircraft and the vital service they provide, even Sir David Attenborough jets off to exotic places to tell us all about Global Warming and the damage we’re doing to our Earth, so, like them or loath them we need aircraft and they’re here to stay”.

“Even making a small positive effort can go some way to offsetting the pollution and in turn can go a long way to easing a company’s carbon footprint, surely this has to be better than doing nothing at all!”

So where do we begin?...

Sustainability is no longer an add-on to a business, it’s upon which businesses and their reputations can be built, our businesses are currently trading during a very important crossroads and we are making critical choices that will either have a positive or negative effect on our planet including our businesses over the next few years.

Consumers are changing too, we all want to feel good about the products we are buying and selling, in an ideal world single use items wouldn’t exist, and would be solely recycled or sustainable products but that’s just not realistic at the moment. 

Whilst single use bottles and coated coffee cups are low cost and convenient, are they really what we'd choose to drink out of? Probably not! It’s shocking to note that only 1 in 400 paper coffee cups actually gets recycled. Consumers now have the choice of quality items manufactured from durable materials like stainless steel, recyclable plastics and borosilicate glass that can be used again and again before finally being recycled, and on the plus side they can still be personalised too. 

What should we be doing?...

These days, so many industries are cluttered with hundreds of brands and services, all competing for the same market place. And, with everyone constantly pushing out their own marketing messages, it can be very hard to grab people’s attention and stand out from the crowd. You may need to ask yourself, what makes my brand or service different from my competitors? Do I need to do something truly unique that makes my products or services stand out and be more desirable, this is probably the 64 million pound question but you do need to look at your strengths to enhance upon them whilst still thinking green.

It’s a well-known truism in business: it costs more to acquire a new customer than it does to keep an existing one, so I feel a move to educating your existing client base on your own company’s sustainability ethics would be a great leap forward. You can then start to build stronger relationships with your customers to keep them coming back, you want them to be confident in using your brand or services and I’m sure they will happily share their experiences with others too.

And finally...

I myself have woken up and smelt the coffee, in a recycled cup of course, and that we all need to be doing something about this. Here at FDR Promotions I’m looking towards more suitable sustainable products and workwear, including the manufacturing ethics and materials used, we have even started not to individually plastic bag our garments and when or if we are required to do so, we are looking to supplying biodegradable bags. This all takes time, as we can only supply and personalise what is being manufactured at present, this will be a continual learning curve but feel we should play our part and start the ball rolling.

Things we can do...

Earth positive promotional merchandise and organic workwear tends to amplify your brand or service whilst taking into account factors such as reusability, recycling and sustainable responsiblity. 

Whether your next marketing campaign requires eco-friendly bags, branded reusable eco coffee cups or pens, even perhaps your workwear that can be organic or recycled too, the chances are we will have the environmentally positive product or garment that will suit your needs. 

These are just some of the Recycled or Eco Friendly products we do:

  • Recycled Pens & Pencils
  • Recycled Notepads
  • Cups, Bottles & General Drinksware
  • Keyrings & Badges
  • Bags
  • Lanyards
  • General Giveaways
  • Workwear
  • Jackets
  • T-Shirts
