AusPen Non-Toxic, Refillable Dry-Erase Markers
- Nov. 19, 2012 - RICHMOND, Canada --
EcoSmart Products is offering Cyber Monday specials on November 26, 2012, on a selection of its leading AusPen eco-friendly products. The non-toxic and refillable markers are quickly replacing the more traditional disposable markers in schools and companies that are making efforts to go green by eliminating toxins and reducing waste. According to EcoSmart Products, there has been an increase of approximately 250% in holiday sales since 2009. “Our customers love when there’s a sale on AusPen markers and refill inks,” explains Kerry Tuttle, co-owner of EcoSmart Products, “because it is a product they use every day and the markers make great green holiday gifts for anyone who uses a whiteboard. AusPen customers tend to be passionate about getting others on board with greener products.”
Take Carlos Figueroa, a physics instructor at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz, California. After realizing how much waste he was creating by using disposable markers to teach at the whiteboard, he switched to AusPen refillable markers. “I would throw out about 50 markers per semester,” explains Figueroa. “Now using a refillable marker for me is a ‘no brainer’.”
After convincing his Science Division to offer this greener alternative, approximately half of the instructors in the Natural and Applied Sciences Division have opted for AusPen markers - a step that has significantly reduced waste at Cabrillo College.
“People are generally looking for unique, new products that help save the environment,”
says Tuttle. “A product like a set of non-toxic and refillable markers made of recycled materials is an interesting talking point and useful gift for teachers, students and office workers.” Another main holiday consumer for EcoSmart Products is the parent who wants his or her children to use non-toxic markers at home or school.
This is the second year that http://www.ecosmartworld.com
EcoSmart Products will be offering Cyber Monday sales. “Earth Day is always a natural time for EcoSmart Products to offer specials,” says Tuttle, “but as green as our customers are, they are also big online consumers.” Since AusPen markers are almost exclusively available online, EcoSmart Products has high hopes for its one-day cyber sale. And with an increasing demand for unique eco gifts, EcoSmart Products is expecting Cyber Monday to draw in even more business than last year.
