Collapsible straw set to enter promotional products marketplace

The collapsible reusable drinking straw is set to enter the promotional products marketplace in the Fall of 2018.

Darling of Kickstarter, the reusable and collapsible stainless steel straw is the ideal new idea for the ever-changing promotional products marketplace.

It seems almost daily we are seeing ideas that have been around forever suddenly reimagined in new and interesting ways. Today’s new redo is the drinking straw.

The Turtle Video that changed the world!

Sometimes just the simplest and most graphic imagery can change people’s minds and focus them on the problem at hand. The genesis for the reusable collapsible straw was this amazing video of a sea turtle having a straw removed from his/her nose.

The World responded in a way that no one could imagine!

Single use disposable plastic straws are now being banned in over 20 countries and hundreds of states, provinces, cities and communities across the globe. Even McDonalds is starting to ban plastic straws?

Promotional Products Industry Leads the Way…

The promo industry, which is often seen as an offender in the eyes of many for the amount of disposable plastic items it produces, is keen to be on the edge of this movement with several suppliers positioning themselves as leaders in the supply of the reusable straw.

Overcoming distributor objections is easy!

Distributors have been lighting up forums on Facebook and more spelling out worry about product safety. Not to worry, these collapsible straws are made from food grade stainless steel (incapable of supporting bacteria)  and lined with a food grade silicone tube (also incapable of supporting bacteria). The straws also come with a cleaning widget. No worries.

New promotional product ideas for Fall 2018 unveiled

New Promotional Product ideas for Fall of 2018 are now unveiled!

The promo industry thrives on new ideas. Here are 5 new ones set to rock the promo world.

Promotional products (aka Swag) is a 27 Billion US dollar industry currently going through a major sea change, metamorphing from a catalog based, slow moving print and promotions business to now a primarily web-based business working on short retail type cycles with ideas rapidly coming on scene and almost just as fast, vanishing.

New promotional product ideas for 2018

 

Distributors. Do you feel out of touch with your client, stuck?

This is a pretty common feeling amongst distributors and not without good reason. The average ASI distributor is 57 years old while the average end user buyer is 35. This has come as a result of ASI not doing a good enough job recruiting new people into the industry and at the same time millenials are moving into business in ever increasing numbers.

“By 2025 50% of the US workforce will be occupied by the millenials while the average age of ASI distributors will be 59-62. No wonder distributors feel lost!”
