It’s official—independent Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has announced that he will throw his hat in the ring for the Democratic presidential nomination. As Bernie kicks off his campaign, he’ll often be reminded of the grassroots campaigns that began his political life right here in Burlington, Vermont.
Throughout his career, Mr. Sanders has been an advocate for the environment, our country’s veterans, and the average “Joe Bag-of-Donuts” making a living today. So, as his team gears up for the trail ahead, we’ve selected 5 potential Bernie Sanders swag items: promotional products that he should give away during his campaign—all inexpensive, eco-friendly, and memorable!
1. Panda Ballpoint Pen
Pens are one of the most popular promotional giveaways for any event, and presidential campaigns are no exception. These inexpensive Panda Ballpoint Pens are unique enough to make a big impact while still being useful enough for folks to keep them close. The barrel is made from bamboo. Additionally, the trim is made from 60% recycled materials.
2. Imprinted Biodegradable Latex Balloons
Balloons are a huge hit with presidential supporters, creating a feeling of celebration and hopefulness at any campaign event. These 9-inch pearlized balloons are made of 100% natural latex, a completely biodegradable material. With a float time of 8-10 hours, these imprinted balloons will make an impression that lasts through long rallies and speeches.
3. Seed Paper Postcard
Every presidential campaign uses direct mail and paper handouts as a way to give people the information they need about the candidates. Why not print on a material that will go on to create something great, like this seed paper postcard. The full-color custom message can be printed on the recycled seed paper with Earth-friendly inks that won’t damage the hardy mix of seeds. The Sanders campaign could easily send a message of new beginnings with this paper.
4. Reusable Cotton Tote Bag
Bags are the promotional items that offer the most impressions throughout their lifetime—perfect for when you really want your message to be seen. This cotton tote bag is ideal for holding donor gifts and other giveaways at campaign fundraisers. Made with 14 oz. biodegradable cotton canvas, the dual handles and shoulder strap on this bag make it a snap to carry.
5. Pocket Eco-Note Jotter
Bernie should use the pocket eco-note jotter to write down speech ideas and other campaign notes. This notebook features a cardboard cover made from recycled paper, 60 pages of recycled paper, and an eco-responsible pen.
While these products may biodegrade in the long term, no one can deny Senator Bernie Sanders’ lasting impact on this country’s political landscape. Best of luck to Mr. Sanders and his team in the race!
