Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

We’re very happy to say Re-Sourceful is two whole years old this month.

Started back in 2007, with a range of 30 products, Re-Sourceful has grown significantly and can now boast over 150 beautiful, durable and useful promotional gifts.

Having worked for ten years in the industry, we knew how important it is to connect people with brands but believed there was a better way to do it than simply with throwaway tat.

After a lot of discussion, debate and deliberation we came up with the idea of a catalogue of positive promotional ideas, and Re-Sourceful was born.

The main aim of Re-Sourceful is to provide positive promotional ideas that allow business to say more about themselves and that have a positive impact on lives at home and abroad.

We’ve been busy these past two years and have helped a wide variety of businesses celebrate their ethical credentials and approach. From Sun Microsystems to UK Film Council to Manchester University to Triodos Bank – we’ve helped all manner of companies communicate their commitment to the planet.

Waste not want not. It’s a great mantra. It’s not just the environmental benefit of this philosophy that gets us excited though. We love the creative challenge of coming up with new ideas for reusing things.

For example – our recycled courier bags. Made by re-using advertising banners, every stylish bag is a unique statement that stops unnecessary waste going to landfill.

Recycling just one plastic bottle saves enough energy to power a 60W light bulb for six hours. It’s amazing how much energy and resources can be saved through recycling. Products made from post-consumer waste help to keep rubbish out of landfill in the UK and also contribute less to the depletion of the world’s non-renewable resources. Awesome.

Such as our Eco USB Wristband – made from 100% recycled plastic and aluminium. A pretty nifty way to carry around all those important files!

It’s ideas that we love, and it’s ideas that can change the world. We think that applying a bit of lateral thinking to a problem can result in some of the greatest ideas.

If you’ve got any eco promotional ideas or have a problem that needs some re-thinking, let us know.
