So I work at a bank and my sales goals are ridiculous right now.

Turns out they they changed what counts for us and since a lot of those things could be considered a "green" way to go I came up with a promotion for us to attract more people to them. This may get lenghthy but I feel like I need to explain it best to give you all a better feel for what I am looking for. We are already planning to give a free reusable bag for doing one of the products we promote. Then I came up with the idea that for each one they do they will get entered into a drawing to win an eco-friendly basket.

Here's what they will have to do to get free bag & entry.

Open a New Checking Account-(Not exactly green but add it to every promo it's what we are pushed to sell)
Enroll in Online Banking-Less paper
Sign up For E-Statement-no paper statements
Apply for Debit Card-less cash less paper less checks
Apply for and Be Approved for Credit Card-same as debit card

We have a creative person that will make a good sign that will read better than this.

Anyway our issue is the basket. I offered to "donate" a bamboo bowl to use as "basket" (with a catalog and business card inside of course! ;) ) My manager suggested that we put in a brita picture and then we are lost on what other little things could be added that would be eco friendly. I also offered the bags we have and my boss didn't say no but he didn't say yes so I may donate a few at least depending on how it all pans out.

So if anyone has any ideas of what other little things we can add. I guess I should have thought of the small bamboo spoons as well. I'm supposed to kind of look for ideas this weekend and get it all figured out. We want to start the promo asap and do drawing on earth day April 22nd. Thanks for any input or ideas.

If you can do more PC items, I'd suggest the Bamboo Prep Towels. Awesome product.

Reusable water bottles (a good match with the Brita, too).

Ok, that's all I can think of at the moment.

bumping for more ideas?????

I think I'll offer to make up basket at least at cost minus brita picture at this point and maybe I'll add a reusable bag to it??

Any little inexpensive fillers you could think of would be great!

I would do the reusable PC shopping bags that you can get on a supply order or add the Help Whip Cancer ones that we can order. The Bamboo items are great because they are definitely eco-friendly. The microfiber towels would cut down on paper towel usage (I am a living witness to that!). The green Brita water bottles are great too. I use mine at work all the time rather than paper cups. Big Lots (if you ahve one near you) has them for $2 and they are filled with Crystal Light Lemonade and Pink Lemonade.

Bumping for some last minute ideas again. Got a late start on our project because of crazy month but are going forward for month of April in celebration of earth day.

Plan so far, Large Bamboo Bowl is "basket" Putting in basket: Brita pitcher, water bottle, microfiber towels, small bamboo spoon set and one reusable bag. Don't have all supplies yet so unsure if need more to fill. Ideas for fillers would be great still. Thanks
