Chicobag is proud to share another step forward in our #littlebitbetter campaign: announcing our new partnership with Polyconcept North America (PCNA), a leading promotional products supplier giving clients the opportunity to design prints they can feel good about on products that are kind to planet Earth.
Who is PCNA
PCNA is a Top-40 industry-leading promotional products supplier with a heart for sustainability. Not only do they offer qualified distributors (that’s you!) the ability to order ChicoBag at lower minimums (hello, 50 items!), quick turnaround (next-day for qualifying purchases), full-color transfer, and PCNA makes it easy for distributors to shop sustainably.
PCNA is doing things a #littlebitbetter: ProudPath™
In 2022, PCNA launched “ProudPath,” a new sustainability initiative designed to help promotional product distributors meet their customers’ environmental and social responsibility objectives. ProudPath gives recognition to retail brands for all the hard work they do towards sustainability, emphasizing brands that are Certified B Corp, 1% for the Planet, and Climate Neutral.
One more way they’re doing it #alittlebitbetter: You can sort and shop their featured brands by sustainability focus: like forward-thinking Purpose Partners, charitable Brands That Give Back, brands that emphasize Responsible Sourcing, and more. So far, PCNA has partnered with 33 retail brands making a difference: think Klean Kanteen, tentree, and Bellroy, to name a few. And now, we’re adding ChicoBag to that list!
"Partnering with PCNA and their exceptional team members is a no-brainer,” said Lucas Crowley, Director of Sales & Marketing, ChicoBag and To-Go Ware. PCNA allows ChicoBag to better meet industry demands by offering custom sustainable products at lower minimums and faster lead times. Additionally, the ProudPath program helps distributors sort through sustainability claims that ultimately combat greenwashing.”
What ChicoBag Products will PCNA Carry?
PCNA will be the first to carry our most popular Original, Vita, and Sling rePETe, in our new waterless dyed 100% Global Recycled Standard Certified rePETe fabric, made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, with 89% less water, 63% less CO2 emissions, and 60% less energy.
Charitably to date, PCNA has assisted in giving $940,000 to 1% For the Planet, provided 27,000 people with clean water through Well Aware, planted six million trees with tentree, and so many other admirable accomplishments. Additionally, they have helped to recycle 20 million plastic bottles and 1.5 million pounds of cotton through their partnerships.
We are proud to align with a company working hard to protect our planet. With this new partnership,
we look forward to providing our customers additional ways to sustainably shop ChicoBag and To-Go Ware products.
