We all know how crazy our clients can get about getting the color onto a promotional product. Now you can offer them their own pantone matched version of the folding collapsible drinking straw.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months, you have seen in news from around the world that all types of 1 time use plastics are being banned.
The ban on over 1 billion plastic straws per year caught many in the promo world unawares. However, trendsetter Promo Motive caught the idea early and came out with the Last Straw. The Last Straw is designed to be logo friendly!
Distributors, this is your chance to present your client with something trending and eco-conscious! It’s a promo home run!

“The selling points on the folding straw are not all about the function of it, but about the emotional appeal!”
This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: video contains disturbing images.
After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and remaining undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries across the world banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.
