5 Kinds of Sustainable Souvenirs Attraction Sites Should Sell


When consumers visit attraction site shops, they have a variety of souvenirs to choose from. But how many of those souvenirs are sustainable? A large number of shoppers are likely to go out of their way to find eco-friendly gift options for their loved ones and seek brands that offer eco-friendly products or packaging. Therefore, it’s important for attraction sites to stock various eco-friendly items.

Sustainable souvenirs are made or sourced in ways that are not harmful to the environment. Some examples include handmade or recycled products, souvenirs made of stainless steel or bamboo. Buying sustainable souvenirs is a great way for consumers to support eco-friendly initiatives, while also providing a unique and memorable gift for their friends and family.

Here are five kinds of sustainable souvenirs that attraction sites should sell:

1. Recycled items

At BrandArt, we believe that we have a duty to reduce our environmental impact, that’s why we created our ECO range, a collection of sustainable and eco-friendly products made from salvaged, recycled or environmentally friendly materials, to help reduce our dependence on new raw materials such as plastics, meaning that BrandArt, our customers’ and yours can make a big difference when purchasing and reduce our carbon footprint. The shift in consumer trends towards eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable products reinforces the importance of visitor attraction destination stores stocking a wide and varied range of high-quality, well-priced branded merchandise that not only reduces our collective environmental impact but also breaks down in landfills when discarded.

For example, BrandArt’s eco-friendly and sustainable range offers various items such as key fobs, made of recycled leather, notepads made of recycled receipts, recycled plastic pencils and so much more.

2. Natural Fibre & Eco-Friendly Clothing

For eco-friendly clothing, there are many types of materials to choose from. One of the most sustainable options is natural fibre clothing, which is made from materials like cotton, hemp, and wool. These materials are renewable and biodegradable, plus they don’t require harsh chemicals to produce.

For the consumer, natural fibre clothing is also more comfortable and breathable than synthetics, making it a brilliant choice for warm weather climates
Another eco-friendly material to consider is recycled clothing that is made from post-consumer materials, like recycled polyester, denim or leather. These materials are reformed into new fabrics, which can then create clothing items.

Recycling clothes not only reduces waste but also uses less energy and water than traditional methods of fabric production, which makes it a great option for eco-conscious attraction site visitors.

Another option is compostable clothing, items such as our Eco Rain Poncho, made from a combination of PLA, PBAT and corn starch. This combination of materials means that once you are done with it, you can place it in the compost at home and it will begin to biodegrade within 6 months.

3. Stainless steel items

Stainless steel is a great option for souvenirs, it’s durable and used for a variety of items, from key chains to lunchboxes. And because stainless steel is non-toxic and doesn’t corrode, it’s a safe material to use for souvenirs.

There are a variety of stainless steel souvenirs that attraction sites can sell, including drink bottles, bracelets, earrings and even mini mint tins. But you can also get more creative with stainless steel souvenirs and sell items like kitchenware, bottle openers, or even jewellery boxes.

Because of stainless steel’s versatility, attraction sites have many options for what they can sell. So if you’re looking for a sustainable souvenir that will stand out from the rest, consider stocking up on some stainless steel items.

4. Bamboo

Bamboo is another great material for sustainable souvenirs. It’s renewable, biodegradable, and grows quickly, making it a superb choice for souvenir shops looking to stock eco-friendly items.

There are a variety of bamboo souvenirs that attraction sites can sell, including chopsticks, thermal mugs, and cutlery travel sets. Also, bamboo is a reliable material, so it can create durable souvenirs such as watches and phone cases.

If you’re looking for a unique and sustainable souvenir option, bamboo is a great choice. It’s affordable, stylish, and environmentally friendly, making it the perfect choice for your visitors who want to show their support for sustainability.

5. Stone & Cork

Natural stone can be used for a variety of products. It’s not only strong, durable and environmentally friendly, but also versatile and unique. It’s a completely natural material and can be made into fridge magnets or a notebook.

When it comes to finding sustainable souvenirs, cork is another great option. Cork is made from the bark of the cork tree which is harvested without damaging the tree and not only is cork environmentally friendly, it’s also a renewable resource, making it a great choice for souvenirs. It is a very versatile material and can be used for pencil cases, bags or coasters.
