Best Green Giveaways for Clean Up Events

Joining forces for a cleaner and greener future, eco-conscious volunteers and organizations turn to eco-friendly promotional products to enhance clean up events. Sustainable swag items serve practical purposes to highlight environmental stewardship, reduce waste, and promote social responsibility.  


Gear Up with Eco-friendly Promotions  

Here are a few long-lasting and sustainable promotional products wildlife conservation groups, recreational and park departments, and local governments use to create a strong sense of community, boost engagement, and highlight brand logos and messaging during clean up experiences.  

  • Safety is crucial during clean up events. Reusable Hi-Viz gloves protect volunteers from glass and other hazardous materials and serve as symbols of an organization’s commitment to giving back to the planet. Branded gloves are washable, are safer alternatives to latex gloves, and can be reused for future cleanups or gardening.

  • Pollution weighs down the environment. Measure trash pickup totals by using portable scales to reflect on community impacts during community gatherings for Earth Day, World Clean Up Day, and other eco-friendly themed occasions. Customizable clean up scales read up to 75 pounds.

  • Heavy duty buckets are essential for collecting and sorting trash. Find 5-gallon buckets at hardware stores that can be cleaned and reused over and over. Branded buckets made in the USA with recycled materials are smaller, making them a better option for children who want to help. These eco-friendly buckets can also be reused as sand buckets. Plus, they minimize environmental impacts pre- and post-production.

  • Breathable safety vests are designed to keep volunteers visible during community service activities and can be reused for future events. Featuring bright colors and reflective straps, customizable mesh safety vests increase brand awareness while prioritizing volunteer safety. Plus, every order of branded safety vests supports charitable organizations benefiting cancer research.

  • After hours of picking up litter, volunteers will likely want to clean their hands as soon as possible. Travel size hand sanitizers, formulated with aloe vera, fight off bacteria and prevent hands from drying out. Made in the USA with a refillable and recyclable container, mini hand sanitizers are a customer favorite for environmental clean ups. Users can attach hand sanitizers with carabiners to their pants, cross body bags, and other accessories for easy access.
