Tyres are now recycled into really useful promotional items!

We need not have mountains of used tyres anymore that take an age to biodegrade, we can recycle them into a host of useful items that can be branded too.

Mouse mat, coasters and pencil cases can actually all be made from recycled tyres! The old and worn-out tyre mountains are reducing! Imagine the amount of tyres discarded in the UK every day – now there is a great use for them; recycle them into useable, promotional gifts.

The mouse mat is functional, recycled, provides a great surface, is  good looking and could be made from the very tyre that caused you grief! They can be printed with your company, school, event or product logo and message to make them an environmentally responsible, giveaway. You can choose up to 4 colours, depending on your design to print, bright colours show up really well, against the black backgrounds.

 The recycled tyre products are available only in black, as obviously car tyres are black and to change the colour of the rubber, would involve processes that would not be environmentally friendly! The recycled tyre mats, coaster and pencil case, obviously have a super rubber finish that ensures extremely good grip, so they won’t slide around on your desk. The gorgeous pencil case comes with a range of colour coordinating zips to jazz them up, there is loads of room for all those stationary essentials.

Supervet on Channel 4, brave, takes risks and believes in his team and the animals.

The Supervet series on Channel 4, features Noel Fitzpatrick and his team of dedicated vetinary visionaries. The team deal with referrals from all over the country that local vets cannot help. A lot of these animals have complex fractures that require pins, plates and sometimes external fixaters. Last nights episodes featured Jasper, a beautiful staffordshire terrier puppy that had birth and growth defects. His elbows on the front legs had never been “in the socket”, and the leg bones were growing at different rates. Not only did he have a series of complex, difficult and lengthy operations, he also had a cardiac arrest due to an anaesthetic beforehis second op. Jasper had nearly 150 physio sessions, nearly 50 hydrotherapy sessions and over 2 months in the purpose built, state of the art clinic. Against the odds, Jasper, a black cat, a beautiful labrador and a pot bellied pig escaped being youthanised and were saved by the “bionic vet”.

Britain is a nation of animal lovers, this programme proves there are owners prepared to pay to save their pet, most of the them are insured, but insurance only goes up to a maximum amount, the owner is then liable for the remainder. The animals themselves, were brave and aided their own recovery with their determination. The vets were also emotionally involved, this clinic is the last chance for these much loved pets.

Promote your charity, business, company or service using an animal theme. We have stressballs in every shape and size, coasters, mouse mats, glasses, mugs, clothing, pencil cases etc.. that can be printed with your animal designs and your logo to attract your clients. People often like people, that like animals, show your company as animal friendly and win new clients. Go to www.mikkis.co.uk for inspiration.

GCSE and A-Level exams starting now for thousands of school and college students.

This is the time of year students in years 11, 12 and 13 dread the most! Exam time. Some children do anything upward of 6 GCSE’s with students in grammer, selective and private schools doing as many as 14 or 15 GCSE’s. At AS level anything from 2 to 5 subjects and often one is dropped for A level the following year. This is a very stressful time for everyone. Schools and parents worry are the students doing enough revision and taking it seriously enough, the students feel stressed and are torn between studying and wanting to enjoy the nice weather coming and finding time for some work or hobbies.

Today for many is the last day of full time school as study leave commences. This allows students to study and revise, at home or at school if they wish and prepare for their exams. GCSE’s started this week for a couple of examing boards but the majority start next week. AS and A levels are not quite starting yet but soon. Students will already have applied for college, 6th form and university places and received their conditional offers, all now depends on the grades! The students are under lots of pressure from parents, offer letters, their schools and colleges and primarily from themselves.

The rules are strict about what you can take into an exam room. If you are a college, 6th form, University or service wanting to appeal to potential students, why not give them an exam kit printed with your details and logo. For example, the kind of pens, pencils and rulers in a see through pencil case, branded with your logo! Advertising for your educational establishment and an easy way for the students to get their exam tools right and organised, all in one go. If you want to talk more about this or any other promotional items, please call us at Mikkis on 0800 731 0301, email us at sales@mikkis.co.uk, or look at www.mikkis.co.uk.
