EcoPlum Premieres First Sustainable Swag Video


NEW YORK, NY, October 4, 2018 - Today EcoPlum Business Gifts, the Sustainable Swag® product line at EcoPlum, Inc., premieres its first professionally-produced video, entitled “What Will You Leave Behind?”

The one-minute video tells a story about the kind of brand image a company expresses through products bearing its logo or message. With a little light-hearted humor, EcoPlum makes the point that companies should consider how their values get communicated through the physical representation of their brand on promotional products that they give away. Joe Whelski is the director, writer and producer of the spot and he is based in New York City.

Gia Machlin, Founder and CEO at EcoPlum, said “We are so excited to release our first promotional products video. We hope it is entertaining, but also makes a key point about sustainable business practices.”
