Green Goes Pink for Breast Cancer

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as I wrote before, from a marketing standpoint, the month of October will be filled with awareness raising events in which companies and organizations are often asked to show their support through donations of time, resources, and yes promotional items.
Here are a few more eco-friendly ideas for Ecopreneurists looking to support local Breast Cancer Awareness events and organizations with branded promotional items.
One item that groups always seem to need are gift bags, and the pre-printed non-woven Breast Cancer Awareness bags from Leeds give the Ecopreneurist a chance to donate a stylish “pink” bag at a low cost.
Indeed the pre-printed Support The Cause line from Leeds provides pre-printed art for a wide range of eco-friendly and traditional promotional items including bags like the 100% Recycled PET Lake Convention Tote and PolyPro Big Grocery Tote and water bottles like the Optimus Stainless Bottle and Santa Fe Aluminum Bottle.
Another great idea for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the BreastCancer Awareness Journal ThemeBook from JournalBooks.
ThemeBooks personal guides provide helpful information on a variety of topics including Breast Cancer Awareness, Healthy Heart Tips, Recycle Tips, Fitness Tips, Nutrition Tips, Travel Tips and even Wine Journals.
The BreastCancer Awareness Journal is 5″ × 7″ with 100 sheets of ruled, 100% recycled, 60# quality writing paper. The journal includes stock imprint on front cover plus a full color information sheet printed on 80# gloss cover stock. The EQP on these journals is $5.79.
Pricing also includes foil color imprint or deboss up to 16 square inches. Black binding wire is standard with white, silver, or bronze wire optional. These units are made in the USA.
These items work great for Ecopreneurists looking to attach their brand to a seminar or other gathering discussing cancer awareness that is asking for donations of journals/notebooks for attendees.
If you are a promotional items distributor contact Joel Kaufmann for more information on ThemeBooks and Mary Beach for more information on Leeds’ pre-printed line.
