Are you still sucking wrong?
If you are still using plastic disposable drinking straws then you are sucking WRONG!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know by now that using a disposable drinking a straw is almost a crime. This is bad if you are a retailer that has been handing out the now banned drinking straws, BUT it is an amazing opportunity if you are a promo Distributor.
“The banning of straws is a HUGE opportunity for Promo Distributors!”
The Top 5 Reasons to get a Logo on a Folding Straw
Last Straw is the folding reusable drinking straw sweeping the promotional products world. But why is it so popular?
It is always a bit of a head scratcher when something really takes off (i.e. fidget spinner) but at the heart of each trend there are reasons why it has taken off.
Reason #1 – The Turtle Video
The video below has been watched well over 40 million times. The scientists who found this turtle in distress noticed something stuck in it’s nose. Warning: contains disturbing images.
Reason #2 – Ban on Single Use Disposable Drinking Straws
Starbucks, McDonalds, Seattle, Vancouver and hundreds of countries and corporations and counting have decided to ban the single use disposable drinking straw.
Reason #3 – Emotional Appeal
More people will buy it than will use it. Yup, it’s one of those things that say “Hey… I want to help save the planet and here’s my proof!”
Reason #4 – Herd Mentality
I remember way back 18 months ago we were ahead of the curve on fidget spinners. I was telling people: “Keep this in your mind… people will want it!” They thought I was crazy… (we sold over 500,000 spinners in 4 months). Herd mentality had arrived.
Reason #5 – It’s the Right Thing to Do
Even if YOU do not think this is a good idea, a lot of people who have a finer tuned idea about the environment do think it is. In fact, another reusable straw company sold 80,000 units at $35 each. That’s proof enough.
