|With 70 percent of the Earth covered in water, it’s a wonder we don’t say “go blue.” But “go green” is how the environmental movement was branded. So take a cue from earth lovers and tie in to the good feelings of environmentalism. International Earth Day is observed yearly on March 20, with the U.S. counterpart shortly behind on April 22. Do your part to clean up this place. Here are a few ideas for products that can carry your message while helping the environment:Grow together. A Bag-That-Blooms is the perfect way to celebrate the environment. It’s a recyclable garden bag and mailing piece – all in one! USPS approved, it contains soil mix, nutrients and the seeds of your choice, and it weighs less than two ounces. Recipients just open the bag and add water and sunlight to see a garden that will bloom right inside the bag for months.
Bag it up. Who knew recycling could look so good? Bright and colorful, Spectrum Bags are made from 25 percent post-consumer recycled materials. Bags are available in 26 colors.
Save Money. Talk about coming full circle. The recycled piggy bank is made of retired currency! Also available made from denim scraps and yellow pages. Nothing goes to waste! A recycling message is included in the imprint area. One color imprinted on two sides with additional colors available: pink, purple, red or white.
Earthbound. Created using natural materials, Earth Journals are the ideal tool for teaching and encouraging energy conservation and recycling to individuals or groups. These guides are bound to help create a plan of action and record progress. Each has 50 sheets of quality opaque writing paper with either an 18-page section of energy-related information or a 16-page section of recycling-related information. Choice of 8.5-by-11 or 7-by-10.
