Recycle Week 2022: Let’s Get Real about Recycling

The primary purpose of Recycle Week is to promote recycling and how it helps us implement a positive change on our planet. It’s an annual eco event in the promotional calendar of companies, business owners, community groups and local authorities across the UK where they promote recycling to their users, customers, and residents.

A report from WRAP shows that 82% of people changed their attitude toward recycling and a single use of plastic after taking part in Recycle Week 2021. In fact, with over 29 million digital impressions, last year’s campaign has been adjudged the most successful to date by the NGO. Riding on the same strength, WRAP is convinced that this year’s Recycle Week is set to be another significant and more successful event. This theme, ‘‘Let’s Get Real about Recycling’’, aims to get the public to recycle more and spread awareness. It will also challenge perceptions and myths around recycling and target contamination to improve recycling behaviours.

Promote Recycle Week with Sustainable Promotional Giveaways

Recycle logo Sow Easy has taken a stand in the last 30 years and has worked directly with retail wholesalers, distributors, and marketing agencies to lead the way in real sustainable change. This has been achieved by reducing single-use plastics and using recyclable materials in our products wherever possible.

Our innovative and eco-friendly promotional products & corporate gifts are manufactured with biodegradable soy and vegetable ink, leaving no mess behind in the environment. Any business that is authentic about its environmental values and wants to reduce its ecological footprint should choose Sow Easy products to express its sustainability awareness and stance on climate change.

Why Brands Should Get Real about Improving the Environment

In a recent report produced by First Insight and the Baker Retailing Centre at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, when consumers were asked why they would rather purchase sustainable products, most of them claimed that a desire to help the environment was the primary reason why they did. According to Deloitte, nearly 1 in 3 consumers in the UK claimed to have stopped purchasing certain brands or products because they had ethical or sustainability-related concerns about them. Consumers are getting more environmental focused than ever, so also must business owners. Getting real is the first step toward real change.

We are highlighting promotional products that can benefit clients and visibly align them with this high-profile national event.
