In recent years, the number of businesses that offer promotional items and printed promotional goods has expanded rapidly. Promotional items that can be used to advertise brands range from inexpensive items including pens, markers, balloons, bottle openers, whistles, badges, key rings, footballs, compasses to items including Jackets, T-shirts and even USB flash drives. Most promotional merchandise distributers now aim to provide a range of ECO friendly promotional items which are made from biodegradable or recycled materials and some that can be recycled as well. There are different recycled materials which are being used in the manufacturing of promotional goods including leather, tyres, metal, wood, car parts, plastic cups, textiles, paper etc. Through the use of eco friendly promotional items, promotional merchandise distributers want to being seen as taking the environmental message seriously.
