Sustainable Custom Logo Blankets
Eco-Friendly Embroidered Blankets
“Sustainability” is a word that comes up more and more in today’s marketplace. Whether shopping for themselves or buying logo-branded merch for their business, consumers are more likely than ever to think about how their purchases affect the planet. But great corporate gifts–like custom blankets–don’t have to be irresponsible; in fact, they can be sustainable and eco-friendly.
In this article, we’ll talk about why you should choose sustainable blankets for your custom corporate gifts, and we’ll show you the wide variety of logo-branded options available through Merchology.
Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. According to the Global Sustainability Study 2021, more and more consumers are choosing sustainable items when making their shopping choices. Over a third of consumers globally are even willing to pay more for environmentally friendly products. Additionally, it is younger generations who are leading the way in this change. That means the demand for sustainably-made products is likely to only grow over time. Companies can be part of this positive shift by making responsible choices when choosing their custom corporate gifts.
Types of Sustainably-Made Custom Blankets
There are several different features and certifications to look for when shopping for eco-friendly corporate blankets:
Blankets made from recycled materials: There are several companies that make blankets out of recycled materials. The brand Zusa, for instance, uses recycled water bottles for their fabric products, including their blankets.
1% for the Planet Blankets: This global membership organization requires businesses to contribute a percentage of their sales (at least a full percent) to environmentally-focused nonprofits. Learn more about the organization here.
- Blankets from WRAP-certified factories: WRAP, which stands for Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production, certifies sewn-product factories based on 12 principles. These principles include environmental responsibility but largely focus on human rights and labor rights. Therefore, blankets and apparel from WRAP-certified factories are socially sustainable, as well.
Why Gift Sustainable Custom Blankets?
Sustainable blankets are a great choice for custom corporate gifts because they are useful for everyone. While some logo-branded products might make their way to the trash bin, a warm, high-quality blanket is something anyone can enjoy. Whether the recipient is a couch potato or an adventurer, a good embroidered blanket is perfect for movie nights, picnics, or camping excursions.
Because people will use them regularly, custom blankets also make for high-impact logo-branded merch. People will see your logo while making happy memories, meaning they will associate your brand with positive feelings.
Embroidered corporate blankets are already ideal for welcome packages for new hires, employee appreciation gifts, and giveaways at tradeshows. But when you choose a sustainably made option–like the types of custom sustainable blankets listed above–you are also showing recipients that your company shares their eco-conscious values.
