Environmentally Friendly Coasters

We recently blogged about our environmentally friendly promotional magnets. However, we also can provide another eco friendly promotional product, coasters!

Cork is a great choice for an eco friendly product as it is both sustainable and renewable. What’s more, the gloss laminate that we use on the front of these coasters is biodegradable! coffee

Out of all the promotional products on offer, coasters have one of the longest life expectancies. The longest use so far for a coaster is reportedly 15 years! Seriously, we once had a call from a customer who had ordered coasters from us ten years previously, and they were still in use on her desk!

To be honest, there isn’t much else we can say about these coasters as they really do speak for themselves, so here are some interesting facts about the environment for you to read:

  • The amount of water on Earth is constant, and continually recycled over time: some of the water you drink will have passed through a dinosaur.
  • Paper can be recycled only six times. After that, the fibres are too weak to hold together.
  • Humans and elephants are the only animals with chins.
  • There are more than 1,200 species of bat in the world and not one of them is blind.
  • Squirrels plant thousands of new trees each year simply by forgetting where they put their acorns.
  • 94% of life on earth is aquatic
  • Macaques in Japan use coins to buy vending machine snacks.
  • Cows have best friends.
