Green Sports Alliance

“We partner with Relan to create custom bags for our annual Green Sports Alliance Summit. Working with Relan, we not only provide unique, beautiful, durable goods for our Summit attendees, but we also help professional and collegiate sports teams find a solution for challenging items in their waste steams like vinyl banners.

The repurposed bags are just one way the teams can tangibly demonstrate their organization’s commitment to sustainability and our mission, and attendees love them! With the help of Relan, our members repurposed over 10,000 sq ft of used vinyl banners for our 2013 Summit– saving 1,100 lbs of vinyl from going to the landfill.”

Montclair Film Festival

"Kari and Della are both so creative!  They designed a super messenger bag out of our street banners.  With a tight deadline, Relan turned around the bags in record time and the final product was a sturdy, great looking bag.  We look forward to collaborating with Relan for next year’s Festival to develop more repurposed products to add to our merchandise range."

Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA)

"OAAA partnered with Relan to provide one-of-a-kind bags for our national convention in San Diego. OAAA was able to secure the billboard vinyl from a member company’s recycling bin to make the small tote’s that were handed out to our attendees. I even watched as some of the attendees swapped bags with each other. Thank you to Relan for providing quality bags for our convention."

Sustainable Life Media & Sustainable Brands Conference 

“Sustainable Life Media has been working with Relan for four years now, and they are the sole provider of bags to our 1,000+ conference attendees every year. We’ve loved the partnership we have with Relan because they continually create sturdy, good-looking bags while at the same time reducing waste to landfill, which is an important theme of our Sustainable Brands conference.

Even though we offer Relan bags at every conference, they are so different because of the corporate partners that provide the billboard material, and our attendees are always thrilled to get them! Thanks for everything, Relan team, keep up the great work!”

Park Silly Sunday Market

“After changing the logo design for our banners that are placed up and down Historic Main Street, we had over 36 banners to find something to do with. After finding Relan, we knew that we would have a fantastic bag that would reflect our event and the town of Park City.

On our second weekend, a local Realtor saw our bags and purchased every single one that had the City and Event’s logo! Our goal of sustainability, to recycle, quality and fun items were met by the bags that Relan made for us!”
