How to sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw.

If you think that selling a $5 net drinking straw is a tough sell think again!

In fact there are folding straws on the market that sell for $30 or more… Check out this Kickstarter program that sold over 80,000 units at $30 a piece!

“The selling points on the folding straw is not all about the function of it, it’s about the emotional appeal of it!”

First point:

This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: Video has disturbing images. 

Second Point:

After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and staying undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

Third Point:

It’s not about why would anyone pay $10 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reuseable drinking straw.

Your client’s logo on a LAST STRAW says to the world that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution!

McDonalds and Starbucks move to ban plastic straws, transition to reusable

The trend to ban plastic straws continues its worldwide movement as both Starbucks and McDonalds ban plastic straws.

Disposable plastic straws continue to be the poster child for everything bad in the world of non-recyclable plastics and major corporations are taking notice.

As is often the case, major corporations start at the edges of their business empires and then quickly move towards the center. Today both McDonald’s and Starbucks of India banned the use of all disposable plastics including drinking straws.

This ban comes amidst an ever-increasing chorus of bans from cities, states and countries banning the disposable plastic straw. This ban includes Seattle, Vancouver and over 500 other cities.

What started all of this, a Turtle Video?

Yes…24 million views of the video below showing a sea turtle having a disposable plastic straw wrenched from its nostril (where it had become embedded in its sinus and throat) has prompted a worldwide backlash against the disposable straw and given rise to the folding stainless steel drinking straw.

The disposable plastic straw is now being banned worldwide. Seattle bans plastic straws.

 

The Promotional Products market gets in early on the trend.

Often the promotional products market is slow to adopt new ideas but the folding reusable straw is out of the gate and available for corporate promotions as of August 1, 2018. Get it here first.

Collapsible straw set to enter promotional products marketplace

The collapsible reusable drinking straw is set to enter the promotional products marketplace in the Fall of 2018.

Darling of Kickstarter, the reusable and collapsible stainless steel straw is the ideal new idea for the ever-changing promotional products marketplace.

It seems almost daily we are seeing ideas that have been around forever suddenly reimagined in new and interesting ways. Today’s new redo is the drinking straw.

The Turtle Video that changed the world!

Sometimes just the simplest and most graphic imagery can change people’s minds and focus them on the problem at hand. The genesis for the reusable collapsible straw was this amazing video of a sea turtle having a straw removed from his/her nose.

The World responded in a way that no one could imagine!

Single use disposable plastic straws are now being banned in over 20 countries and hundreds of states, provinces, cities and communities across the globe. Even McDonalds is starting to ban plastic straws?

Promotional Products Industry Leads the Way…

The promo industry, which is often seen as an offender in the eyes of many for the amount of disposable plastic items it produces, is keen to be on the edge of this movement with several suppliers positioning themselves as leaders in the supply of the reusable straw.

Overcoming distributor objections is easy!

Distributors have been lighting up forums on Facebook and more spelling out worry about product safety. Not to worry, these collapsible straws are made from food grade stainless steel (incapable of supporting bacteria)  and lined with a food grade silicone tube (also incapable of supporting bacteria). The straws also come with a cleaning widget. No worries.

Get Your Logo on it for Less. Factory Direct Promotional Products for Less.

Promotional product professionals deserve a break. They deserve to make more money for all of the effort they put into their difficult work.

The business of selling and delivering customized promotional products often takes a bad rap but what is more problematic is that distributors are often doing it for very little profit.

ASI Distributors often deal with overly demanding clients and rush orders with unreasonable timelines. All of this would be fine if their profit was worth it but often they will do all of this work for very little in return.

“We believe that distributors deserve to make more than a lousy ‘C’!”
