Reusable cups and bottles have become considered somewhat of a ‘staple’ when businesses are looking at what branded products they want to purchase and for good reason.
They offer a variety of benefits from helping to create a sense of belonging for staff and helping to reflect your green agenda, to being a useful handout for prospects who are likely to use it on a daily basis, helping to boost brand recognition.
Can they now be utilised to help businesses overcome the new challenges that will be presented as a result of Covid-19?
As we emerge from the pandemic, innovation will be key in helping businesses to evolve and overcome new challenges. But as much as innovation, it is also about looking at how you can repurpose or adapt solutions to make them work for you and your teams in the current situation.
Reusable cups and bottles are a great example of this.
What was and still is a great product for branding both internally and externally, can now be utilised in a new way, especially now that we can offer a variety of options with an anti-bacterial coating to provide the highest level of safety.
As businesses prepare to welcome more of their employees back to the workplace, there are a number of challenges they will need to overcome in order to create and maintain a safe Covid Secure workplace.
We have previously discussed the different ways we can work with businesses to prepare their sites, through providing products including quality PPE.
Another key consideration for businesses will be the use of their shared facilities.
These areas can quickly become hotspots for the spread of infection. Regular and effective cleaning of spaces as well as limiting their use will be essential.
Reusable cups and bottles are a great product that you can provide your staff with, so they can easily bring in their own refreshments, helping to reduce use of your facilities and the risk of contamination.
There are a number of options available to choose from that will support this.
For example, we can provide larger 2-Litre reusable bottles, allowing your staff to stay hydrated throughout the day without having to regularly refill, through to quality thermo cups and bottles that can keep drinks and/or soups hot for longer periods of time.
We are also now able to offer a variety of these products with an anti-bacterial coating to help prevent the spread of infection, making them an even more effective and safe solution.
Through having these products branded with your logo and colours, this can also help your staff to feel like part of the team, as they have all been provided with the same product and it can help to create a sense of belonging to the brand.
It is also great for brand exposure, especially as many of your staff will be likely to carry them with them on their commute into work increasing your exposure to the wider public.
Limit the spread of infection in the workplace
In order to protect your staff, you may also look to limit the use of your kitchen facilities through implementing things such as timetables. Or to remove the risks entirely to begin with, you may even look to keep them closed off until you can implement the necessary processes and procedures.
Other solutions may be that you need to create additional drinks stations at certain points throughout the office and limit the number of people who can use each station at any time.
These are just a few considerations.
No matter what solution you opt for, your staff will still need to have access to refreshments and reusable bottles are a great way to facilitate this safely.
