Recycled Mouse Mats

This year has seen a huge increase in the demand for green and eco friendly promotional items. So to help play our part in keeping the planet green we have launched an exciting new range of recycled promotional items!

One of the most popular reycled promotional products that we offer are our recycled mouse mats. A present we offer to version of recycled mats which include the recycled brite mat which is made from old vending cups and the tyre mat, which as the name suggests is made form recycled car tyres.
Recycled Brite Mats
The recycled brite mat is made from recycled vending cups. This rigid mouse mat does not flex like some standard mouse mats, which means they are ultra durable. The surface allows you to use both a traditional ball mouse and an optical mouse as these are “optical friendly”. What makes the brite mats so popular is the fact they can be custom printed up to full colour! The bright vivid designs we can achieve makes the brite mats stand out from the crowd.
Recycled Tyre Mats
How many times have you seen a pile of car tyres sitting around abandoned? Well at last we have found a use for old car tyres and have found an ingenious method of recycling them and making them into recycled mouse mats. As you would expect the mouse mats are black and can only be printed with simple spot colour designs, but what better way to promote an eco message!
