Hello All, I am a park ranger for a federal agency and I am looking for some creative ideas. Since most of our parks are located by water we do a lot of education about water safety. To get our message out we hand out several different items to visitors that have water safety messages on them. Unfortunately, most of these items are made out of plastic and I am sure only used a few times and then tossed in the trash. Some of the plastic items that we are currently handing out are color changing cups, frisbee throw rings, key chains, DVDs, washable tattoos, stickers, and to top it off plastic bags to hold all of this stuff. I have started to come up with a list of alternative items but I would like to see what you all have for ideas. Once I have a good list of reasons for change and alternative items I will present it to the national water safety committee. Thanks!!!
How about cotton bandannas printed with park maps in soy inks?
