Painting The Park Pink With Our Bio Balloons

This year’s Paint The Park Pink walk was a record breaker for the London-based St. John’s Hospice, and we are so pleased that our Bio Balloons were able to have a place in the ceremonies. Over 200 supporters showed up for the walk, who combined raised £15,000 for St John’s Hospice. Beginning in Regents Park, the walk was kicked off with a ribbon cutting by CEO Caroline Fox, along with Hospice patients. A lovely memorial balloon release also took place before the walk began. The release, of course, was done with our 100% natural latex Bio Balloons. All of the balloons released were biodegradable,

 

The charity walk coursed friends, families, staff, and volunteers in a 5k ramble around Regents Park and Primrose Hill, where they were able to enjoy spectacular views of London. Once the walkers reached the finish line, they were able to enjoy a BBQ and refreshments. Many of the supporters stayed well into the afternoon to enjoy the post-walk festivities. Regarding the successful event, Fundraising Director Mark Thomas said, ‘A big thank you to everyone who took part and help us raise this incredible amount, our Hospice simply which could not run without the generosity of our supporters and the help of our volunteers.’

St. John’s Hospice is kept up and running by the support of over 150 volunteers. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of these volunteers, over 4,000 patients are cared for each year by the organisation. To donate, head over to https://www.stjohnshospice.org.uk/donate/.

Score Big During This Summer’s World Cup!

It may seem like the Winter Olympics only just wrapped up, but it’s nearly time for the other massive quadrennial event of the year, the 2018 World Cup! If you’re looking for a creative way to promote your company while playing up the events, look no further than our seeded paper flags!

Alright, you probably won’t be getting much use waving a Canadian flag at this year’s event, but luckily, both sides of these little flags are completely customisable, and can be printed on in full colour.  

You can encourage your customers to back their team, and even incorporate your company’s logo on the opposing side of the flag. Once the flag is ready to be retired, the seeded paper on it can be planted. Once planted and sufficiently watered, these spectating accessories can grow into a lovely wildflower mix, lettuce, or even dill! Lucky for you, there’s loads of fun wordplay to be had with these plants…

Lettuce take home the World Cup.

We’re kind of a big dill.

If you’re backing England (or another country) and a seeded paper flag isn’t your thing, our Seedsticks® always make for a fantastic promo product when it comes to sporting events… just ask England. 😉  

An eco-friendly spin off from the promotional matchbox of the past, each Seedsticks® can be torn away and planted individually. One of our favourite football-themed promotions is infused with grass seeds, with the idea of being able to “grow your own pitch.” Some other fun ideas with our Seedsticks® include:

Chili seeds to help “Fire England to the World Cup.”

Thyme seeds, because “It’s about thyme we took home a World Cup again.”

Sweet pepper seeds, as “Victory is ever so sweet.

If you don’t fancy any of those options, not to worry! The Seedsticks® can be filled with a variety of flower, herb, or vegetable seeds. We’ve got loads of options. For both the seeded flags and Seedsticks®, please allow 3-4 weeks lead time from artwork approval.

No matter which of our sustainable products you choose to celebrate the World Cup with, you’re sure to leave a lasting impression on everyone who gets a seeded product from you.  

We’d love to help you create some lovely promotional products for the World Cup. Email us with any questions here, or give us a call at +44 (0) 207 157 9598.
