Green Marketing at Work: Promoting a Green Service-Case Study

  • May 15, 2012

imprinted sports bottlesAustin, Texas: We get asked quite often for case studies on how businesses and organizations use green promotional products to promote their services.

Here is an example of a case study.

OBJECTIVE: Amtrak wanted to aggressively market their Northeast corridor line (Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston and New York City) with its ultra-modern, energy efficient Acela line. They wanted to promote the service as a green alternative to short-distance air travel.

ITEM: Amtrak selected the Save-a-Bottle reusable sports bottle.  It look like a single use bottle, but the top portion unscrews for cleaning and for adding ice cubes.  It is made of heavy-duty Eastman Tritan BPA-Free plastic.

DISTRIBUTION: A color folder was inserted and these were mailed to 1500 corporate prospects, in hopes of enticing their business.

RESULTS: Amtrak was so impressed with the results that they have re-ordered three more times.  They also noticed the high number of riders that are using these eco-friendly sports bottles.

Reusable sports bottles are the ideal way to promote your message, as it is seen by many people and gets used over and over again–delivering a very high ROI and a very lot cost per impression.
