Here are 3 great new recycled swag items I absolutely love for 2010:

First off, check out this recycled notecard wheel:


Ecoswag Item ALX-1341

This is definitely one of those items you really need to see in person to fully appreciate. While fan-type jotter notepads like this are nothing new, this one is cooler than the rest. It's made of recycled material, with a sturdy, smooth cover that looks great with a black logo imprint as shown. The first page has a 3-year calendar, followed by 76 pages in 4 color-coded sections. The pages are thicker than a regular notepad, in fact they're more like index cards. Each card is lined and perforated along the left-hand side to tear out neatly. You can't see it in the photo, but there's an attached orange elastic privacy band that keeps the jotter neatly closed when not in use.

This particular item currently only comes with the citrus-orange cover, but it really looks sharp and has a hip & modern vibe. Priced at under $4.00 this is a great swag idea to leave behind after sales calls or to give as a gift to clients or prospects.

Next, here's a similar item for keeping cards or photos:


Ecoswag Item ALX-1350

This is a smaller sized "wheel" with a recycled paperboard cover that contains 10 durable vinyl sleeves. It's perfect for keeping business cards, credit cards or even wallet-size photos! It can be hard to find swag ideas that will appeal to such a wide range of people, but this one works equally well for senior citizens, soccer moms or business people. You can barely see it, but this one also has an elastic band to keep it neatly closed when not in use.

Priced at $3 or less, this is one of my favorite "giveaway-priced" swag ideas for spring events and trade shows. This one does come in a choice of colors - Royal Blue, Black, Chocolate Brown or Orange.

Last but Not Least... a Recycled Password Keeper


Ecoswag Item #ALX-1342

For those who have too many logins and passwords to keep track of, this recycled Password Pad is a swag idea whose time has come. It's arranged in alphabetical order with sections for recording account names, password hints and passwords. Made of recycled material with a metal spiral binding & elastic privacy strap, this is a fantastic swag idea for creatively marketing your high tech company at events and conferences.

This item comes in Black, Brown or Royal Blue as shown. Also in the $3.00 and under price range, this is a unique and useful promotional item that many people have not yet seen.

I actually didn't used to be a plastic bottle myself, although I am a bottle blonde if that makes any difference.

What I'm excited about today is opening my 2010 catalog from Numo Manufacturing and discovering that we can now offer our customers some cool neoprene swag items that are made with 85% post-consumer recycled content, like this mobile accessory pouch that's perfect for Blackberries & iPhones:


Numo Mfg. Item #557

This is the larger of two sizes offered, and sells for $2-$3 with a 1-color custom imprint (minimum 100). The size & price make this a perfect eco-friendly giveaway for tradeshows and other events - and it would also be very easy to mail. The material is sort of like that of a scuba wetsuit, and it's made out of recycled plastic bottles. If you're searching for swag ideas that appeal to the young & hip, this is a good choice.

This second item is the NEW Eco-Coolie... which is basically the same Eco-Coolie I blogged on a year or so ago, but it's gone from 10% recycled content all the way up to 85%... so I thought it merited another mention:


Numo Mfg. Item #100ECO

It's pretty much exactly what it looks like - a beer koozie - but made mostly from post-consumer recycled bottles (this is also 85% recycled content). Even though they've been around forever, koozies are a promotional product that refuses to die... and they're getting a new following among the younger generation because of their "retro" vibe. They're useful, inexpensive ($.89 & up) and have a humongous imprint area for your logo or message. My favorite way to use them is at events (like as a hole sponsor at a golf event) and hand out cold beverages in a custom logo eco-coolie. Everyone appreciates a cold drink at an event, and the coolie keeps their hands dry and their drink cold. Best of all, it's a walking billboard for your logo!

INTERESTED IN THESE ITEMS WITH YOUR CUSTOM LOGO?
