Bruce and Promo Motive

What does Bruce Springsteen and Promo Motive have to do with each other?

The connection is simple. I have been a huge Springsteen fan since I was 15. Seen him many times but this week I am seeing him in his one man show on Broadway. Front row!

It is a big bucket list item for me as it is a solo one man show in a small 800 seat theatre in NYC. If you are reading this, I am in NYC seeing the show.

“I would like to thank all of our customers for making this bucket-list-worthy trip to see Bruce on Broadway possible…thanks!”

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months you have seen in the news from around the world that all types of 1 time use plastics are being banned.

In fact, major cities including Seattle and Vancouver have outlawed plastic drinking straws altogether making their use an illegal offence!

The ban on over 1 billion per year plastic straws caught many in the promo world unawares. However, trendsetter Promo Motive caught the idea early and came out with the Last Straw. The Last Straw is designed to be logo friendly!

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 are 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.

Your clients 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!

Who is the IDIOT that paid $35 for a folding drinking straw?

That idiot would be me!

There are a few folding reusable stainless steel drinking straws on the market including LAST STRAW, the stainless steel, food-safe, collapsible, reusable straw specifically designed for the promotional products distributor.

We decided to test all of them… including this one… which came in at an astounding $34.50 for ONE SINGLE STRAW ($14.50 for shipping!). The delivery of my single $35 straw is not expected until NOVEMBER!

We are the Factory and the Supplier. We ONLY sell to DISTRIBUTORS! We know what we are doing!

We only deal with distributors and have for years. We know what we are doing and we know what you need!

We do work a little differently.

We have people on the ground in the factories in China and they dig around looking for the best products (not the cheapest) that can be delivered quickly, have great logo capabilities and are tested and meet all safety standards. Often they are from the same factory where the brand name one is being made. Are we smarter? Nope… (after all, we did buy a $35 straw!). It’s just that we source and buy a whole lot smarter!
