Promotional Products Industry Embraces Folding Reusable Drinking Straw

The 27 Billion Dollar Promotion Products Industry Embraces The Folding Reusable Drinking Straw with Open Arms!

The ASI promotional products industry, often cited as being slow to respond to eco-trends has woken up with a start and wholeheartedly embraced the Last Straw folding reusable drinking straw.

Promotional products’ main purpose is to draw attention and produce customer retention with a logo on an eye-catching or innovative product. Nothing is more eye-catching or innovative than the folding collapsible eco friendly Last Straw.

“Promo experts predict the Last Straw folding drinking straw will be the hula hoop for 2019!”

The promo industry has long been the place for businesses both big and small to seek out new products and ideas to slap their logo on. The 27 Billion dollar industry is often thought of as being somewhat slow to embrace new ideas despite their mantra of being innovative. However, it seems that when it comes to the folding reusable straw they are way ahead of the curve.

What caused the big stir about folding drinking straws?

Basically two disparate but simultaneous events started the ball rolling on the foldable, reusable drinking straw.

The first was the Turtle Video. This haunting and emotion evoking video shows a plastic disposable drinking straw being yanked out of its nose for almost 10 excruciating minutes!

The second was the Final Straw Kickstarter campaign!

Final Straw came out with a version of the folding straw that raised 38443 backers who each paid between $20-$30 for a single folding straw. The total pledged was $1,894,878 to help bring this project to life. Originally they sought about 1000 or so backers. Obviously they’ve exceeded their wildest dreams!

Promo Motive has created their own version of this folding straw which will be available August 1.

Promo supplier Promo Motive, the supplier that “Does Weird Well!” is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the logoable collapsible stainless steel straw, scheduled for August 1st with a distributor retail price C of between $7-$8.50 at MOQ.

Unthinkable scenario seems more and more likely as countries, states and cities move enmasse to ban disposable plastic straws.

The disposable plastic straw has come to an end in many marketplaces faster than anyone anticipated. A lot of this is due to 2 things happening independently of each other but both interlocking.

 

“Using plastic disposable is already illegal to use in over 400 cities, counties and states worldwide, can imprisonment for its use be far behind?”

The Turtle with the straw in its nose video.

This heartwrenching video made by an intrepid group of eco warriors brought home the point that even our most cherished wildlife is endangered by our addiction to unnecessary plastics. In the video it shows the Turtle rescuers pulling out a foot long plastic straw that has been embedded in the Turtles nostril!

The invention of the folding eco-friendly stainless steel straw.

Spurred on by companies such as Final Straw and Last Straw a new way to think of a drinking straw has emerged. The idea of a folding, key chain, collapsing stainless steel straw is going viral. Made from bacteria resistant stainless steel and bacteria resistant food grade silicone, the folding drinking straw works as a long term solution. Instead of throwaway one-time use straws the user can carry around this reusable and recyclable folding steel straw.

The $27 Billion dollar Promotional Products industry seizes upon the idea!

The ASI promotional products industry has seized upon the folding straw product as a trend-setting product perfect for the world-wide b2b consumer base. Starting in the fall of 2018 a number of leading suppliers including Promo Motive will be launching their own versions of the folding collapsible straw.

Massive price drop of 50% on collapsible folding drinking straw predicted!

Price drop of collapsible folding drinking straw could be 50% or more!

The wholesale price of the trendsetting collapsible and folding eco-friendly drinking straw, the Last Straw is rapidly declining.

Originally the idea of a folding straw was launched on a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign sold at a price of $30 per unit. This was done by Final Straw and we are now seeing other variations of this design coming to the market for prices well under $10 with further price drops expected. Read why below.

Why such a massive price decline?

We have seen the same massive price declines in many previous successful Kickstarter campaigns. The problem or reason seems to be the disconnect between invention and manufacturing.

Inventors and their inventions are often not well clued into the costs and procedures of off-shore manufacturing and at the same time their propensity to oversubscribe their initial Kickstarter offering, as tempting as that may be, can cause enormous problems as seen in production delays, cost overruns and more.

Lets consider last year’s Fidget Cube. Initially the inventors sought $15,000 as start up money to get their Fidget Cube molded and marketed. They offered each Kickstarter investor a single cube for $25. Instead of raising $15,000 they raised more than $6,000,000.00! Currently the wholesale on a cube is about $2.

Now this may seem like a good problem for Fidget Cube to have had but trust me things aren’t always rosy!

Why is this a problem?

The problem is really a variety of problems combining to make one big headache for the original manufacturer and to simultaneously rapidly accelerate a whole lot of competitors to make a similar product, especially as this product may not yet be patented and may not be patented, ever!

Oversubscribed Kickstarter campaigns can rapidly accelerate a whole lot of competitors to make a similar product, especially as the product is not yet patented and may not be patented, ever!

 

If a promoter/inventor of a new take on an idea gets too successful on Kickstarter then they can easily create a huge bottleneck in development and early production. If you are a newbie manufacturer not used to how China works, the manufacturing and delivery issues unique to the country and how to ramp up production quickly and effortlessly, then you end up with a delivery problem of enormous size. This is seemingly what happened to Fidget Cube with their initial deliveries being delayed months past promised dates. This could easily be the same for Final Straw as they too have oversubscribed significantly their Kickstarter campaign with their delivery dates now not scheduled until November 2018!

We have the Last Straw available for wholesale as of August 1, 2018.

Watch the Turtle Video that caused such a stir and the reason why cities and states are banning the disposable plastic straw.

It’s no secret that our oceans are awash in wasteful consumer plastic that threatens the planets and its animals. Nowhere was this more poignant than in the video shown below.

What is a Tactical Flashlight?

A tactical flashlight can be an important tool in your everyday carry toolbox, but doing a quick Google search for the best tactical flashlights won’t do you much good if you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for in the first place.

Depending on what you do for a living or what you require from your gear, flashlights that are too small may not be bright enough if you work in security, law enforcement, or in consistently dark environments, and won’t help much in the way of self defense. In contrast, tactical flashlights on the larger side won’t be as EDC-friendly as their smaller counterparts and will be much more difficult to carry in your pocket.

The best tactical flashlight not only sheds plenty of light on a dark situation, but it also provides plenty of functionality, is built like a tank, and can provide a valuable means of self defense in a situation that surely requires it. Whatever your candlepower requirements, and no matter your budget, I’m sure you’ll find a suitable tactical flashlight on this list that not only meets your EDC needs, but also your tactical objectives.

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.
