Top 10 Eco-friendly Promotional Products for Food and Wine Festivals

Events with food and beverages invite attendees to mix and mingle, learn about the vibrant culinary scene in their communities, and sample bites and drinks. However, with large crowds comes the challenge of managing waste from the amounts of disposable packaging, single-use cutlery and bags, and promotional materials that end up in landfills. This presents a unique opportunity for event sponsors and exhibitors to promote sustainability and educate attendees about eco-friendly living. 

Wineries, breweries, hospitality groups, local governments, and other vendors with sustainable initiatives can make powerful impressions by offering branded merchandise with environmentally and socially responsible advantages.  

Here is a top 10 list of popular branded promotional products to create green event experiences at food and wine festivals: 

  • Hosts enhance their events by including a branded glassware item with each ticket purchase. Customizable wine glasses are sleek and engaging welcome gifts, preparing wine enthusiasts for tastings. They also double as memorable keepsakes for at-home use and help reduce plastic consumption at large-scale events to align with sustainability goals. 
  • FSC-certified cork coasters are great welcome gifts with an eco-friendly charm. Customizable coasters are practical promotional products made from biodegradable and renewable resources at an affordable price point. 
  • Silipint wine glasses made of 100% food-grade, FDA-approved, and BPA-free cured silicone have a shatter-proof design, making them a safe eco-friendly swap to single-use plastic cups and glassware during food and wine festivals. Attendees who receive reusable silicone wine glasses will have a sustainable branded keepsake to promote sustainability and leave lasting impressions. 
  • Portable, 12-ounce stemless wine glasses made of 75% recycled ocean plastics are another great sustainable promotional drinkware alternative for eco-friendly sips. They are perfect for welcome gifts, giveaway prizes, and swag bags and are available in fun colors. For every sale of recycled ocean plastic wine glasses, a portion of proceeds are donated to Surfrider Foundation.  
  • Replace single-use plastic forks, spoons, and knives with reusable wheat straw cutlery sets. These are great to have ready for cooking demonstrations, sampling expos, and dining areas. Guests can take home these eco-friendly utensil kits to reuse at restaurants, work, and future events. 
  • Customizable RPET table throws are made from durable, 100% recycled materials from plastic water bottles. Recycled table throws serve as eye-catching, sustainable solutions to attract foot traffic to booths with a conscious touch. 
  • Washable kraft wine bags are an excellent accessory for wine bottle giveaways and vendors showing off their selection. Reusable kraft bags have the look and feel of leather but with sustainable materials. For every sale of kraft wine totes, a percentage is donated to The Ocean CleanUp and its mission to rid the world’s rivers and oceans of plastic pollution. 
  • Kraft paper wine bags are a more economy-friendly bag choice for food and wine festivals. Made from 100% recycled paper, their recyclable and biodegradable design can support zero waste event goals. Plus, branded kraft paper bags are available in high quantities at an excellent price, making them perfect for events with a large number of attendees. 
  • Create a sense of unity for staff and volunteers by incorporating recycled cotton aprons into their event uniforms. Sustainable apparel designed with recycled and renewable materials also makes great giveaway prizes for attendees and special guests.  
  • Customizable lanyards made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastics are amazing tools to promote sustainability from registration to the main event. They can be fully customized to include event logos, colors, and designs.
