What are the bags being used for?

These tote bags were designed exclusively for the Glacier Conservancy by designer and Amble sabbatical participant, Jeff Leet. The Glacier market tote bags, along with various other products, are available in the Glacier Conservancy shop. During the Fall of 2019, Jeff had spent several weeks in Glacier designing a new product line that was inspired by the Going-to-the-Sun Road and Logan Pass. The tote bags celebrate the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road and its scenic vistas.

Why Promotional Tote Bags are a great selling tool for Non-Profit Organizations

We are living in a digital world. But did you know that a well planned promotional product, such as a tote bag, is a great way to improve upon your non-profit organization’s existing marketing strategy? People want a way to support your cause, and this is most typically done through donations. However, if you are looking for a way to stand out from other non-profits and build awareness, offering versatile promotional items such as tote bags is an excellent way to do so.

It might seem like a weird concept. As a non-profit organization, you generally are trying to bring money in to support your cause rather than spending it. By offering a tangible good for consumers to purchase from your organization via online storefront, you will still be receiving donations, just in a different capacity. It also delivers a physical item to the end user in response to their donation. Additionally, tote bags travel!  Which means, they are now providing additional marketing for your operation. This raises brand recognition, supports the community, can help add volunteers, and will help to increase  donations to your organization.

In the example above, the Glacier National Park Conservancy created an online storefront where consumers could go to purchase apparel, maps, books, gifts, and more. Although you can purchase the standalone USA made tote bags, one of our favorite items available in the shop is the Glacier Picnic Gift Tote. It combines the Going-to-the-Sun Road Tote Bag with various meats and treats that the Glacier Conservancy offers. Making a great gift for friends, family, or yourself!
