Cactus Keyrings – Promotional Keyrings With a Difference!

When it comes to promotional keyrings, it doesn’t get much cooler than living cactus keyrings.

That being said, one of our fan favourites at Buddy Burst are our cactus keyrings! These lovely little succulents grow slowly in their capsules for their first 8-12 months, then will grow large enough to be replanted into a pot. Brands can have their logos printed right on the side of the enclosure, or on the packaging. Because the mini cactus also needs to be tended to and watered about once a month, a special relationship with the brand will be fostered as folks care for their cacti.

The succulents that come within the cactus keyrings are available in either “Spike” or “West” variety, so your clients can choose their prickly preferences.  As for details, the product dimensions are 17mm x 40mm, while the whole thing weighs only 15g. It can have both sides of the packaging printed in full colour, and even have an imprint on the capsule. Lead time is approximately 2-3 from artwork approval.

Here are some fun facts that you might not have known about cacti via Softpedia News.

 

  • There are over 2,000 total species of cacti. The plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and in the southwestern United States, can grow to be over 20 m tall.

 

  • Cacti plants are actual water reservoirs. If you were to split open a cacti, the inner clear liquid may not look like the water that the average person is used to, but nonetheless, the thick liquid inside the plant is perfectly drinkable.

 

  • Just like other plants, cacti are pollinated by animals like hummingbirds and bees.

 

  • Cacti flowers range in colour and blooming periods depending on the species. Interestingly enough, some only bloom at sunset, while others only bloom in the daylight.

If you have any questions at all regarding the cactus keyrings, please don’t hesitate to ask! Simply email hello@buddyburst.com, or call us at +44 (0) 207 157 9598.

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.
