Environmentally Friendly Fundraising

Fundraising is a necessary component for most school groups.  As schools plan ahead for their next fundraiser they should consider the impact of their past fundraising efforts and ask the question…is this good for students and the community?

For example, consider a custom imprinted water bottle for your group.  This great product helps raise valuable funds while protecting the environment.  Did you know that it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to manufacture a year’s supply of bottles water.  That’s enough to fuel 100,000 cars. 

Compact Reusable Bag

Another great fundraiser to consider are reusable shopping bags.  These bags can be custom imprinted with you school logo or community message and come in a wide array of colors and materials.  Here is a fun/scary fact about plastic bags.  The average American uses between 300 and 700 plastic bags per year.  If everyone in the Unites States tied their annual consumption of plastic bags together in a giant chain, the chain would reach around the earth 760 times.

These are just two options available by the team at Green Benefits.  For more information please email info@greenbenefits.net or go the fundraising page to view more products and programs.
