In Early 2023, we at Hanley Economic made a sustainability-conscious choice to change the materials in our promotional pens. Say goodbye to plastic and say hello to bamboo!
Why the Switch?
- Eco-Friendly Impact: We're committed to reducing our environmental footprint. Plastic pens contribute to the ever-growing plastic waste crisis. By switching to bamboo, we're choosing a renewable and biodegradable resource. Bamboo grows at an astonishing rate, making it a much more sustainable option. When our pens eventually reach the end of their life cycle, they'll decompose, leaving no lasting harm to the planet.
- Support for Sustainable Forestry: Bamboo is not only fast-growing but also low-impact. Unlike traditional wood, which requires years to mature, bamboo regenerates rapidly, reducing the pressure on our forests. By opting for bamboo pens, Hanley Economic Building Society is promoting responsible forestry practices and helping to combat deforestation.
- A Natural Aesthetic: Bamboo pens exude a unique, natural charm. They're smooth to the touch, have a warm texture, and their grain patterns make each pen distinct. The shift to bamboo reflects our dedication to a more organic and eco-conscious image, aligning perfectly with our commitment to sustainability.
- Inspiring Others: We hope our decision to embrace bamboo pens will inspire others to make eco-friendly choices. By taking this small step, we're demonstrating our belief that every action, no matter how minor it may seem, contributes to a more sustainable future. We encourage our customers, partners, and peers to join us in this journey toward a greener world.
- Customer-Centric Approach: We value our Members, and we know that many of them share our passion for sustainability. By offering bamboo pens, we're providing our Members with eco-friendly alternatives that reflect their values and preferences.
Our switch to bamboo pens is a tangible demonstration of our dedication to reducing our environmental impact and inspiring positive change. We believe that small changes can lead to significant improvements, and we're excited to embark on this eco-friendly journey with you.
Join us in making a positive difference—one bamboo pen at a time. Together, we can build a greener, more sustainable future.
