Promotional Products for Pride Month 2022
June is Pride Month which means it’s time to recognize and celebrate the LGBTQIA community. Pride Month has been celebrated for more than 50 years, starting with a march in New York City’s Central Park. Today Pride events come in all shapes and sizes from raucous parades in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago to lectures, film festivals and AIDS memorial vigils. There truly are events for everyone.
Parades are always the biggest events during Pride Month and they are much more than thousands of community members marching. Some of the biggest brands in the county participate in parades. In past years all four of America’s most popular sports had their own floats in the NYC Pride Parade.
For companies and organizations that will be marching in parades, eco-friendly Pride branded apparel is a must. Eco Promotional Products can help outfit your team with sustainable t-shirts, tank tops or hats with your company logo in Pride colors. Other fun and functional ideas for parades are Recycled Rainbow Pride Sunglasses and USA made, Recycled Rainbow Hand Fans. Some organizations will be marching on foot instead of riding on floats. Let everyone know who you are by having team members carry a banner with your organization’s name. Our sustainable, eco-friendly banners are made from recycled plastic.
Participating in Pride parades is a great way for organizations to show their commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity to the world, but it’s also important for organizations to bring Pride Month into the workplace. From increasing inclusivity to retaining talented LGBTQ+ employees, progressive companies are 70% more likely to capture new markets due to the benefits of diversity. Companies can host an inclusion workshop or have a virtual fireside chat with an LGBTQ+ guest speaker. For businesses that still have most of their team working remotely, Eco Promotional products offers fully custom Pride swag boxes with items such as a t-shirt, pin and socks, all packed in a branded rainbow Pride bag, to send to employees’ homes.
At Eco Promotional Products, we are proud to work with and support women-owned, minority owned, and other culturally diverse businesses. By increasing diversity in our supply chain, we can build relationships across the globe with people who share our common goal: creating a more sustainable, resilient and equitable future.
