Why Reusable Straws & Other Eco Items are the Promotional Products to Spearhead the Protection of Our Environment...
It's amazing how something seemingly insignificant as a plastic straw may be the catalyst for a major rehab for the way we handle our environmental issues. We are told that only 9% of the plastic we use every day gets recycled. For those mathematicians out there, that means that 81% of the plastic we use ends up in landfills or in our oceans, often killing or harming the sea life. Aside from making changes in your everyday life and switching to reusable products, you can also prompt others to do so by thinking green when choosing your promotional products. Conference Complete offers quality products geared towards helping our environment, and among those products are reusable straws. Available in a refreshing range of colours, this set is the perfect, sustainable alternative to single-use plastic straws. Stainless steel straws can make your drinks feel colder when you drink them and will stay with you as opposed to ending up in a landfill or ocean. Just use the included straw brush and water to clean them and then store them for next time.
Companies aren't just foregoing plastic straws. Grocery stores, such as Woolworths and others too, are putting plans into action to slowly eliminate the use of plastic bags in their stores. You can help get the momentum going with our custom shoppers. Our reusable bags come in a variety of styles and colours to match any brand and their large printing area will make your company name and logo stand out and create brand awareness. Check out some of our environmentally friendly, grocery-carrying options here.

Wheat Straw is the stalk left over after wheat grains are harvested. Traditionally it has been treated as waste, but now it can be used in combination with traditional plastic. This reduces the quantity of plastic needed to produce an item and accelerates its biodegradability once it is eventually disposed of. These products are durable and re-usable, offering an alternative to single use plastic. This compact & convenient cutlery set is the perfect gift for employees & clients making use of canteens, going on picnics or just wanting to make a difference. There are many other wheat straw items available too.
Cork is a material that is stripped from the bark of a cork oak tree. It is considered eco-friendly because the cork tree is not cut down to obtain the cork, and the tree will regenerate the cork harvested from it. Cork is a natural product which has been used as a substitute for parts of these products which would usually be made from synthetic materials. From affordable mouse pads, to pens, to notebooks and even drink-ware, these attractive gifts are perfect for the corporates looking for sustainable and natural options. Did you know that while the cork is growing it is capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and that cork trees can live for up to 300 years, one tree can supply cork for many generations?
