Who knew Funeral Directors were this much fun?

Funeral Directors get a Casket shaped flash drive for their annual convention.

Custom casket flash drive, just don’t call it a coffin.

Lately I have had 3 or 4 inquiries and a couple of orders for a casket shaped flash drive. As I am able to do, I stuck my foot firmly in the mouth each time I fielded an inquiry as I referred to it as a “coffin shaped flash drive”.

I was told by each inquiry that “we don’t use the word coffin anymore and prefer casket or funerary, it is more sensitive!”

The Funeral Directors who was making the inquiry then went on to regale me with a few ribald stories of what happens at the convention. The assured me that behind closed doors or on their downtime they were fun loving folk who definitely did not deserve the reputation of being morose.

I was told by each inquiry that “we don’t use the word coffin anymore and prefer casket or funerary, it is more sensitive!”

I learned lots about the funeral business and the way they market their services to one another. I also learned, never call it a coffin, its a casket!”

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months, you have seen in 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 plastic straws per year 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!

Distributors, this is your chance to present your client with something trending and eco-conscious! It’s a promo home run!

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, but about the emotional appeal!”

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 contains 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 remaining undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries across the world 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 reusable 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, that they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem.

How to USE and Clean a Folding Reusable Straw

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

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 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!

We have built a business model based on sourcing and selling the trends, bringing in everything by air in as little as a week and reducing costs so we can pass savings on to you, the distributor. As we like to say:

 

“We Do Weird Well!

Where Did This Idea Come From?

The idea for the reusable folding drinking straw came about as a result of a video captured by environmentalists and scientists operating out of Costa Rica in late 2017.
