Customized reusable drinkware has become one of the hottest promotional items in the past couple years. It’s because they are useful, usually kept for years, and also displays your logo front-and-center, making them a great asset to any branding strategy.
The problem is most promotional drinkware has become very generic in design and the materials in which they’re built with. Enter Welly, a company that offers highly functional and fashionable drinkware that helps our environment, and gives clean water to people in need and promotes healthy lifestyles. With Welly, there is purpose in every sip, and now you can customize them with your logo!
What Is Welly, And What Sets Their Branded Drinkware Apart?
Welly manufactures water bottles, but leaving it there sells these great products short. The fitness-minded or commuters, people who may regularly need a water bottle, understand that there are different features that set a good bottle apart from others. Custom Welly not only has the features to make for a great water bottle but an eco-conscious business model that every company would love to co-brand with. So, what are some of these key features?
Aesthetics matter every bit as much as function when it comes to branded drinkware. After all, you wouldn’t want your logo next to an unappealing design. Welly bottles have a wooden bamboo exterior accent that perfectly aligns with the company’s eco-friendly standards. The outer ring and wood accents add a flash of color, creating something different than your conventional glass/plastic bottle. This is key if you’re thinking about corporate gifts for a number of reasons. For one thing, a unique visual look will instantly help Welly products stand apart from the sea of other drinkware, and your recipients will love taking them wherever they go.
Hand-in-hand with appealing aesthetics comes having the necessary practical features. If you’re in cool weather right, bottles won’t be able to keep your hot beverages hot for long without proper insulation. The same applies to cool beverages in hot conditions. However, Welly delivers in this regard, being able to keep drinks at their ideal temperature for hours after you initially fill your bottle up. Even if your customers/employees forget their Welly bottle in their bag, they’ll likely still have a beverage ready to drink, making them great for travel.
Value matters when it comes to branded drinkware and Welly has a variety of accessories that let people get the most out of their bottles. One key component that you don’t see with a lot of other bottles is an infuser. This is great for making beverages like coffee, pour-over tea, and fruit-infused water without worrying about the solids mixing with the liquids. There are a few other key accessories of note, too. Welly has cleaning tabs/brushes for sale that allow you to get rid of any smells or stains on the bottle. In addition, Welly also offers a flip-cap, which makes it a lot easier to drink hot beverages like coffee without worries of spills.
That bamboo exterior we mentioned before offers more than just aesthetics. Using natural materials like these means that each Welly bottle made has a minimal impact on the environment. A lot of the water bottles out there, especially disposable ones, are made with cheaper, non-renewable plastics. While these help save money in the short-term, they come with a heavy environmental cost. Since these plastics are non-renewable and non-biodegradable, they can pile up in landfills, creating a massive amount of waste that never entirely goes away.
Welly bottles aren’t just made with the environment in mind, but you can actively help the planet and people in need with each purpose. For every bottle sold $1 is donated to various clean water solutions and projects in developing countries. This is already making a change. $10,000 proceeds in bottle sales in 2019 were able to provide 200 people with clean water in Malawi. Welly founder and CEO Ben Kander mentioned that he created the company to support the environment and provide clean water to those who need it.
This has been taken to the next level after Welly created an exclusive partnership for branded drinkware. 3% of sales from this partnership are going directly to charity: water. This nonprofit keeps to the mission of bringing safe drinking water to developing countries. Recently, the partnership helped bring clean water to the village of Mai Welay in Ethiopia. Welly has compelling products, as well as an inspiring partnership with organizations like charity: water. This means that it’s also a perfect match for companies who want to create their own planet-friendly message.
