Companies Capitalizing on Branded Reusable Bags

13, August, 2018 ……….

With New Zealanders using over 1.6 billion single use plastic bags per year, companies have seen this as a great marketing opportunity to put their company logo and marketing message on reusable promotional bags. Pipi Promotional Products, a promo products company has seen a 75% increase in printed bags over the past 18 months through their online store www.pipipromo.co.nz. The supply of reusable shopping bags have been selling out with some styles even out of stock throughout New Zealand. Manufacturers have had a hard time keeping up with demand.

It’s no wonder companies are seeing this as a good investment, 80% of people use promotional products they receive. There are so many reusable bag materials to choose from; jute, cotton, recycled plastic, paper, bamboo and more. “It’s great to see all types of eco-friendly products being branded like reusable coffee cups, drinkware, recycled pens, pencils and notebooks.” says Kathy Wilson, owner of Pipi Promo. “Other countries such as Vanuatu and Australia have also been ordering from us who have a plastic ban, it’s a great way to help the environment and brand your business.” With the most recent New Zealand ban on single use plastic bags it is expected to see the bag and reusable products growth to continue for the promotional products industry.

Owners, Andrew and Kathy Wilson, from Papamoa Beach, worked in the promotional products industry in America for over 20 years. Andrew, a Kiwi, felt the New Zealand industry was lacking the technology people wanted to be able to make easy decisions when searching and buying promotional products online. Pipi makes it easy with search features where you can select by product category, colour, imprint method and price.

Pipi Promotional Products offers a range of promotional giveaway items such as pens, magnets, keytags, tools and more, plus a variety of drinkware, bags and hats for events. Corporate gifts, health and safety programs and trade show giveaways are hot right now. High tech products such as branded phone cases, power banks, head phones and accessories are new to the industry and very popular.
