Fan Cans, LLC recently announced the latest addition to its product line-up: football-themed recycling and waste receptacles . The eye-catching products feature lids shaped like football player helmets, which can be produced in any color and branded with any team and corporate sponsor logos. The firm is building on its success with major and minor league baseball teams and sponsors with the new design.
"Our clients have found that Fans Cans really draw fan attention, so the product and brand exposure is high," explains Stephen Wolford, president and CEO of Fan Cans, LLC. "Plus, Fan Cans help our clients achieve their sustainability goals by making it easy and fun for fans to dispose of recyclable materials properly. Higher material collection rates mean cleaner, greener facilities, and more efficient waste management."
Baseball-themed Fan Cans are already in place at both MLB and MiLB facilities coast-to-coast, including the Tampa Bay Rays, Los Angeles Angels, Washington Nationals and New York Mets stadiums. National and regional baseball sponsors, such as Coca-Cola North America and Waste Management, Inc, have purchased the recycling and waste receptacles to boost their brand exposure and support sustainability initiatives.
"Fan Cans have proven to serve double-duty for baseball franchise and sponsor executives. Now that same opportunity is available for NFL and NCAA football teams and sponsors," continues Wolford. "Fan Cans are a great way to enhance fan affinity and demonstrate good stewardship of the environment. Plus, Fan Cans increase brand exposure with a truly unique sponsorship opportunity."
Fan Cans' 45-gallon recycling bins and waste receptacles with football player helmet lids are now available for the 2009 football season. A motor sports driver helmet is scheduled for release later this year. In its own sustainability pursuit, Fan Cans, LLC's products utilize up to 50% post-consumer and industrial plastic, are highly-durable for expanded service life, and are 100% recyclable at the end of their life cycle.
