Flash Drives Made From Recycled Stuff?

Updated on December 10, 2009

Lots of companies are trying to find ways to recycle batteries, recycle mobiles and recycle copper into other objects so they can be reused.  This in itself is good news – and since they can also be turned into promotional items it is good news for your business as well.

Are there any companies that recycle plastic into USB flash drives?

Yes there are – and they will recycle plastic into promotional flash drives as well.  Not only do you get a useable flash drive, you also get your name printed onto the front of it.  Everyone you give a recycled plastic flash drive to will see your details constantly.  Isn’t that a great way to get your message across and do some promotional work at the same time as helping these companies to recycle plastic in bulk?

Let’s see how many different types of flash drives there are that have been made from recycled stuff.


The Eco-USB Twist - made from recycled rubber

Do you always find the end of your memory stick gets clogged up with fluff and dirt?

If you do you’ll love the USB Twist.  It has a recycled rubber body and a metal twisting section.  This part covers up the all important part of the flash drive, keeping it clean and ready for use at a moment’s notice.

Who would have thought recycled stuff could be so useful?


The Eco-USB Bean - made from recycled rubber

The cute little bean is ideal for promoting your business on.  The main shell comprises a recycled rubber outer complete with a dome shaped decal.  This is the bit that will have your name on it.  Tell the world you support companies that recycle plastic and recycle stuff of all other kinds as well.

The bean is easy to hold and easy to use, making this attractive design a must have.


The Eco-USB Flip – made from recycled plastic

As the name suggests, you can flip this one to keep your business name visible at all times.  Flip it out to plug it in, and flip it back again to protect it.  Recycled stuff like this is good for all businesses – useful, practical and made by companies that recycle plastic on a daily basis.


The Eco-USB Pod – made from recycled plastic

These flash drives recycle plastic in yet another different way.  You’ll find them easy to carry around in your pocket and you can simply pull the two halves apart whenever you want to use the flash drive itself.

And once again it’s easy to make sure your company name and logo take pride of place on the outside for everyone to see.


The Eco-USB Wristband – made from recycled rubber

If you constantly lose your flash drives, why not wear them instead?  You can wear your enthusiasm for recycling plastic on your sleeve – or in this case, recycled rubber instead.

They connect up around your wrist so there is no chance of losing them.  Just unclip it when you need to use it.  They come in all kinds of colours and they just go to show that recycled stuff can be versatile, eye catching and useful all at once.


The Eco-USB Dome – made from more recycled stuff

Yes this is yet another different design.  As you can see there has never been a better excuse to recycle plastic than this.  The Dome is big enough to take your logo and name, and in fact it is one of the best options for this purpose (although all the recycled plastic flash drives work well, as do the recycled rubber ones).

The handy hole at the end means you can pop this memory stick made from recycled plastic products onto your keyring as well.  How versatile is that?

Is there no end to the materials you can recycle?

Hopefully not!  These USB flash drives show that it is perfectly possible to recycle batteries, recycle mobiles and recycle any number of other weird and wonderful things so they get a second chance at life.

Show your support for recycling and boost your business – buy some USB flash drives now

They make great gifts for clients and they keep your business name exactly where it should be – right in front of them.

They’re no more expensive than standard flash drives either, so why get the basic model when you can go for recycled plastic ones that shout your company name from the rooftops?
