How to Order Promotional Water Bottles

by Derek VanDyke 12. July 2013 09:42

Promotional water bottles are a great way to showcase your brand or image. Since 2007, Green Benefits  has been a leader in supplying promotional water bottles to schools, teams, companies, nonprofits and more. Whether you are hosting an event or looking for a great promotional give-way, custom water bottles make a lasting statement that will promote your brand or event for years to come.

When choosing your promotional water bottles it is important to consider your goals and objectives to maximize your return on investment. If chosen carefully, your choice of promotional water bottles will effectively showcase your brand or image for several years. 

Tips for Ordering your Promotional Water Bottles

Price vs. Value - When ordering promotional products it is important to consider the overall value of your purchase. Often our clients are looking for the lowest cost custom water bottles to maximize their purchasing power. Before you make your purchase carefully consider your goals. Sometimes spending a little bit more will greatly increase the overall value of your campaign. For example, a higher quality and/or unique water bottle will be used for years as a personal hydration tool which results in more brand exposure to the end user and everyone around them. 

Graphic Design & Imprint Area - Great design will make your promotional water bottles standout! Consider multiple imprint colors or full wrap imprint options for your promotional water bottles. Many custom water bottles do not offer the ability for a full wrap design option. Start with your design and messaging then choose a bottle which will best promote your brand. The team at Green Benefits specializes in providing multiple bottle options to help you achieve your budget and promotional goals.

Bottle Material & Functionality - The good news is that you have more choices in custom water bottles than ever before. The bad news is that it is often difficult to determine what bottle is best for your campaign. Many groups prefer the feel and quality of stainless steel water bottles, while other like the lightweight and unique design features found in high quality BPA Free plastic water bottles. Both options offer great choices for your promotional water bottle needs. You should also consider name brand bottles like Nalgene and Camelbak which can often add value to your water bottle purchase. 

Made in the USA - Today there are many great bottles made in the USA. Your selection will be limited to mostly BPA Free Plastic bottle. The modern plastic bottle is now considered safe and is back in favor with consumers.

Consider Promotional Water Bottles for Your Next Campaign!

A high quality custom water bottle can benefit your promotional campaign. Besides being a sustainable promotional give-away, promotional water bottles offer the ability to showcase your brand daily in multiple locations. A well designed and functional water bottle will promote your brand to a wide audience providing an outstanding return on investment. The team at Green Benefits and our friends at Back2Tap offer a wide range of custom promotional water bottles and have the experience to help you choose the best product for your campaign or function.

American Made Water Bottle From Liberty Bottleworks

by Derek VanDyke 30. July 2012 12:02

Liberty Bottleworks

Liberty Bottleworks, Yakima Washington, now offers the first USA made water bottle made from 100% recycled material.  Unlike most aluminum water bottles, Liberty uses a flexible food grade coating on the inside to ensure no heavy metal leaching or porous surface for bacteria to build up.  The result is great tasting and safe water.

At first I thought this was going to be just another water bottle.  To my surprise drinking from the Liberty bottles was pure delight.  The size of the bottle fits comfortably in hand and the splash free neck design really works.  I was concerned that Liberty patent pending 1/4 turn off lid design could potentially leak, but after several hikes and trips to the gym the lid has kept the valuable content in the bottle and my gear dry.

These bottle come in several sizes and many great designs.  Liberty uses local artists from around the country to create their unique designs.  Finally, consumers have a viable option for American made metal water bottles.

Grocery Store Wars

by John Hamlin 20. August 2009 12:26

Not so long ago in a supermarket not so far away…help fight the dark side of the farm.

Store Wars is a hilarious five minute mini-movie about a small band of organic vegetable puppets -- Cuke Skywalker, Ham Solo, Chewbroccoli and wise old Obi Wan Cannoli -- battling against Darth Tader, evil lord of the Dark Side of The Farm. Can these Organic Rebels rescue Princess Lettuce and destroy the Death Melon in time? Or will Cuke be seduced by the Dark Side of the Farm ... an empire of pollution and pesticides that has taken over the market with its arsenal of genetic engineering, irradiation and toxic chemicals?

American Food – It’s all Corporate

by John Hamlin 2. April 2009 19:18

I am getting excited that spring is coming, and hopefully soon despite the weather.  For me with spring, Thursday farmers market will start-up and a spring summer weekly shopping routine will begin.  I feel most fortunate to have many local markets to frequent.  This has not always been the case and based on the current issue of Yes Magazine, it seems that the majority of the food produced in the USA is produced by large corporations.  In fact it states that 2% of farms produce 50% of all agricultural products in the USA.

I recommend everyone pick-up this months, Yes Magazine to learn about the state of our food supply chain and support your local farmers market.
