Back to School Promotional Products for Schools and Universities 2018

New student orientations are in full-swing at colleges and universities. At the local level, administrators and PTOs/PTAs are also planning for the upcoming school year. No matter the grade level, back to school promotional products are a fantastic way to welcome students to campus at the start of the school year. Eco Promotional Products’ back to school sale offers low pricing on many eco-friendly promotional items for sustainability-minded schools and universities.

Colleges and universities are leaders in sustainability. Administrators and student groups were early implementers of plastic bottle bans on campuses and they are now leading the fight against single-use utensils and drinking straws. Reusable utensil sets and straws are great for college students to use for dining hall take-out and to keep in dorm rooms for food delivery. A compact reusable 3-in-1 utensil set with a fork, spoon and knife is lightweight and easy to carry in a backpack. And for those who can’t get completely on board with the strawless movement and “skip the straw,” choosing a reusable straw is the next best thing. A stainless steel straw and cleaner gift set will reduce the amount of straws used on school campuses.

College students are just as sustainably-minded when it comes to apparel. They want high-quality, stylish, cotton shirts that feel great. Students are also well-versed in eco-friendly apparel brands. Royal Apparel’s USA made 100% organic cotton long sleeve t-shirt is a favorite for student groups looking to promote their message.

Be mindful of the usefulness of a promotional product for students as you want something that is used time and time again. College students will use a multi-functional tool pen which features is a stylus, level, flathead screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver and ruler all in one dozens of times after move-in day. This long-lasting, multi-functional tool is an ideal product for college residential life departments and apartment leasing offices.

College students are typically heavy mobile phone users. When students have a busy day of classes, a 2,200 mAh UL Listed mobile charger can recharge phones for students on the go. Chargers will be used on a daily basis.

Drawstring backpacks and notebook and pen sets are used by students of all ages from the elementary level to graduate school students. Both are the right price-point for larger giveaways.

For younger children, pencils are always a well-received low-cost giveaway and children love Eco Promotional Products’ USA Made color changing pencils. Some elementary schools are following in the footsteps of colleges and installing water refill stations. To encourage children to bring a reusable water bottle, give the gift of a water bottle at the start of the school year. A 12 oz mini copper vacuum insulated water bottle is the perfect size for kids’ backpacks and lunch containers. These high-quality, retail-inspired bottles can also be used for school fundraisers.
