Rain Protection Minus the Plastic!

Eco-Friendly Rain Protection

Hosting an outdoor event like a graduation, concert, or sports match? You never know what Mother Nature may have in store. As your mother always told you, it’s best to stay prepared. Sure, ponchos are tactful in keeping crowds dry, but all of that one-time-use plastic is pretty terrible for the environment.

Prevent plastic waste and show off your brand’s logo with our compostable corn starch ponchos, a product perfectly in line with the mission of the Evening Standard’s Plastic-Free Project. Interestingly enough, this initiative is being carried out in line with Bee Midtown, and is paving the way for Londoners to reduce their plastic use and ultimately make Midtown a zero waste area.

As for the ponchos themselves, it takes as little as 8-12 weeks for these ponchos to break down. Plus, they are completely non-toxic and CO2 neutral. Also, the color and print on the ponchos can be customised to suit your brand,. So, this poncho doubles as a functional marketing piece that people will be thankful for when the rain comes in. Rain poncho and printing colours according to the European Standard EN 13432, with the OK Compost quality seal. Includes one colour print on the front or the back (one position). Additionally, Pantone matched poncho and other printing options (including packaging and paper insert) are available upon request.

What Else We’ve Been Up To

The One Hundred Network

One Hundred is a network that exists to “support individuals in their purposeful leadership and understanding through the exchange of ideas and experience.” Plus, not only did we have the pleasure of supplying them with custom seeded paper carrier bags for their annual reception, but Jamie, our CEO, was able to attend.

 

Dunnhumby

Next, the data company dunnhumby recently used our telephone-shaped Seedsticks™ for a clever promotion. Basically, our telephone-shaped Seedsticks were used to encourage employees to “#speakup” if they saw conduct code being broken. Very clever!

Muck Boot

Finally, our dear client Muck Boot had its 15 minutes of fame recently.  The brand received the royal treatment when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out in the classic footwear. Very cool!
