Going Green With Earth Friendly Lanyards

Earth friendly lanyards are a great way to show your personal or company culture of support for eco friendly products, and we are proud to offer them.   We have just made many styles of our earth friendly lanyards available with no minimum quantity, because big differences are made one small step at a time.  We have two main categories of earth friendly lanyards: Bamboo & Recycled PET.  

Bamboo is a cellulose fiber that is easily broken down in the soil preventing environmental pollution. Bamboo is also one of the fastest growing plants on earth and can be replanted within a fraction of the amount of years of most timber (seven years compared to 30-50 years). Bamboo lanyards are softer than cotton, have a silky texture, naturally draw moisture away from your skin and resist bacteria.  Please see the following article “How Eco-Friendly Is Bamboo” for a really great overview of bamboo’s earth friendliness.

The next category of earth friendly lanyards are made from recycled PET.  PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) plastics are from the polyester family is used in synthetic fibers and also beverage, food and other liquid containers.  Our earth friendly PET lanyards are made from 100% recycled plastics and are comfortable to wear, have a polyester feel, and resist wrinkles well.

Both styles of earth friendly lanyards are available for custom printing.  If you have any further questions about anything in this post, please contact us online or call 1-800-380-6726.
