In addition to offering retail consumers organic and eco friendly clothing, bedding, and sustainable furniture, Yes It's Organic, an online store, is now equipped to help businesses with their green company logo apparel and logo bags and totes, promotional items, and identity needs.

Company uniforms are made of certified organic or eco friendly fabrics and screen printed with eco friendly inks or embroidered using fair labor. Promotional products are also branded using eco friendly techniques and made from eco friendly materials.

President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, Ed Mass, says "It all began when some companies saw we were selling certified organic cotton bags in our online retail store and called to ask if they could order large quantities and have us put their logo on them. We did quite a bit of searching to find the select screen printers that we now use for eco friendly screen printing inks."

Standard screen printing inks are made from oil and contain environmentally damaging phthalates and PVC compounds, and may contain heavy metals and formaldehydes. "Not so with our inks," said Mass, "Our eco friendly inks are water based, phthalate-free, PVC-free, contain no heavy metals or formaldehyde, and are free of harmful AZO compounds."

Mass then started receiving calls from businesses that were interested in spreading their message about their commitment to the environment. They wanted to extend their actions to their logo apparel

"Clients asked about having their logo embroidered on a 100% certified organic cotton polo shirt," added Mass. "After some research, I found high quality, stylish, and soft certified organic shirts at a fair price, so I started working to launch this division." The division opened in November 2008 and has recently expanded its range of product offerings.

Yes It's Organic now has a large database of organic and eco friendly promotional products. "Over 1000 of these products are available to imprint with a business logo or slogan" says Mass, "and we're finding more every day." With this database and Mass's connections he's confident he can meet the needs of most organizations for corporate branding and identity, conferences, events, festivals, marathons, hospitality guest rooms and spas.

Company branding and identity items from Yes It's Organic are made from 100% USDA certified organic cotton, certified organic wool, or eco friendly bamboo materials, and include shirts, towels, sheets, blankets, robes, and bags and totes of various weights and sizes.

A study by the University of Southern Georgia (2005) shows that recipients of promotional products have a significantly more positive opinion of a business, including its overall image, a higher likelihood of patronizing the business, and a higher likelihood of recommending the business.
