Sustainable merch awareness was once a cool thing to do. Now it’s the expected thing to do and Buzztag is committed to partnering with suppliers and guiding our clients in selecting better product choices that don’t harm our planet.
Why Choose Eco-Friendly Merch Products?
By 2050 it is estimated that there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish. The war on single-use plastics and high carbon products is very real. Choosing to brand eco-friendly merchandise can be good for your business as well as your conscience. Half of digital consumers say environmental concerns impact their purchasing decisions. 66% of consumers are willing to spend more on sustainable goods and this rises to 73% when looking solely at millennials, who make up a growing portion of the decision making workforce. People want to buy from companies whose beliefs and values align with their own and purchasing eco-friendly products is a great way to show that you care.
Most of us are concerned with the harmful effects plastics have on our environment. The disposable nature of many plastic swag items lends to excess waste that ends up in landfills.
By helping your team select the most sustainable products for your promotional marketing efforts and corporate gifts, we can help you tell your story and extend your brand’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

The ASI Impressions Study provides key insights into the behavior and perception of the most promotional products in 2022. One of the most surprising findings in this year’s promotional product impact study is one-quarter (23%) of consumers reported that they PURCHASED a promotional product in the last year.
The average branded outerwear item is still in use by a consumer for an average of 16 months. During that product's life span it is estimated an average of 6,100 impressions (or views, as calculated by multiplying how long a recipient has the product and how many people come into contact with it each month while using it).
