List of Eco-Friendly Suppliers/Products

More and more promotional product suppliers are adding eco-friendly products to their mix. Sometimes it will be a single item or a line of products, but rarely do you find a supplier that exclusively carries products that fall into this category. Some suppliers are also changing their printing process to one that is less damaging to the environment.

Here is a list of links to suppliers' that have taken efforts to be part of the "Green Team". When thinking about your next promotion, consider going green.
