Top Earth Friendly Bamboo Products for Conferences & Events



Putting on an eco-friendly event is much easier than you think, and with so many promo choices available, delegates can still get the same swag buzz they know and love! 

As part of our #EarthDay eco conscious conference series – we are looking at the top 12 earth friendly materials for promotional items to help you find the right swag for your conference or event. To make the list, items must be made with earth friendly, sustainable, recycled, recyclable or biodegradable materials. 

Eco Friendly does not have to cost the earth so why not make 2021 the year we make can make a difference.

bamboo : 100% Natural


Our Top 12 Eco friendly materials for conference items starts off with the most natural and versatile of them all. Bamboo!

Bamboo is the perfect substitute for plastic and is:

  • 100% natural
  • Sustainable
  • Biodegradeable
  • Strong
  • Durable

Bamboo may be plastic free but has all of the flexibility and durability that hard wearing conference items need, without the same negative impact on the environment.

bamboo : 100% sustainable

Bamboo is a fast growing grass with a high strength to weight ratio – almost as strong as timber! Bamboo is versatile and has a number of uses from a food source to a strong structural material with the added bonus that it  is extremely friendly to the environment. Totally sustainable as a resource,

Bamboo is also pest resistant so nasty chemicals are out of the equation. It’s also one of the fastest growing plants it can grow back in a year with minimum care.

Wow you can’t get more sustainable than that!
