Sacramento Bans Single-Use Plastic Bags
The city of Sacramento, CA, has approved a ban of single-use plastic bags – the 130th jurisdiction in the Golden State to pass such a measure. Sacramento’s city council unanimously approved the ban in a meeting last week. Effective next January, shoppers must either bring in their own reusable bag or be charged 10 cents for each recycled paper bag used by the store.

“This is about our city resuming our spot as a leader in the state of California and doing the right thing,” said Mayor Kevin Johnson.

According to the ordinance, Sacramento stores are allowed to provide free reusable bags as part of a promotion, but can only run these promotions up to 60 days per year. Free reusable or recycled paper bags will be provided to participants in the California Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC).

A report compiled by Sacramento’s city government shows that nearly 14 million plastic bags are used in the capital each month. According to environmental advocacy organization Californians Against Waste, 19 billion plastic bags are distributed each year by retailers in California.

In February, a statewide California ban was rescinded when a trade group gathered enough signatures to prompt an upcoming voter referendum. Voters will ultimately decide whether a statewide single-use ban is enacted or not. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson proposed his city’s local ordinance in response to the referendum, and the state ban will supersede the Sacramento ordinance if it is reinstated in November of 2016. Sacramento’s ban requires stores to keep three years of sales records for paper and reusable bags, a provision that is not in the state’s ban.

Marketers Spending More on Promotional Products

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

12A recent study carried out by an independent research company on behalf of the British Promotional Merchandise Association details the recent increase in spending devoted to Promotional Products. Almost half of the marketers surveyed have increased their promotional spending budgets considerably since the last fiscal year. The survey reveals that 83% of senior marketers plan to increase or maintain their current spending on Promotional Products.

When top marketers were asked about the reasons why they utilize Promotional Products as part of their marketing campaign they said it is because it “targets customers effectively,” and because “the brand message lasts longer.” Most of the promotional merchandise purchased for give-away use at conferences, for “brand awareness and rebranding.” The top purchased Promotional Products marketers purchased were:

- Promotional Pens

- Promotional Pads, Promotional Notebooks and Promotional Post-its

-Promotional Canvas shopping bags or Promotional eco bags

BPMA board director Stephen Barker says: “The fact that useful products top the list of those items most purchased highlights that there is widespread recognition among marketers of the ways in which merchandise can bring longevity to promotional campaigns and is therefore and effective brand awareness tool.”

Survey: Mobile Marketing Is Underutilized

While 69% of U.S. small-business owners believe mobile marketing is critical to their company’s growth, the majority of them admit they’re failing to effectively leverage the technology, a survey released by Web.com Group shows. According to survey data, about 60% of small businesses have a website, but only 26% have a mobile-friendly (adjusted for smartphone screens) site, and only 14% have a stand-alone mobile site.

“With more and more consumers specifically searching for local businesses on their mobile devices, it is imperative that small businesses invest in a mobile presence,” said David Brown, chairman and chief executive officer of Web.com. “Having a mobile presence can be a huge competitive advantage for small businesses trying to attract local customers by instantly introducing a potential customer to their business’ products and services in a mobile-enhanced way.”

Last year, firm comScore reported that out of 234 million U.S. mobile consumers, 82.2 million use a smartphone, providing an obvious incentive for businesses to appeal to on-the-go consumers. With that in mind, 64% of small-business owners surveyed by Web.com said they planned to increase spending on mobile investments in 2012. How exactly small businesses will upgrade is not clear, though, as 61% currently don’t have a mobile search strategy. The biggest hurdle to more mobile investments is time, as data revealed 64% of small-business owners don’t have a dedicated marketing team.
