tumbler recall
Sunscope has initiated a voluntary recall in Canada of a promotional tumbler cup due to a manufacturing defect that may present a safety hazard. This NÜTRL-branded tumbler, manufactured by Sunscope, was offered as a gift with purchase in select stores in Canada in April and May of 2024. Based on their testing to date, Sunscope has determined that some of the tumblers may contain a chemical cleaning solution that was trapped between the inner walls of the tumbler, which contains some levels of sulfuric and phosphoric acids. This solution may release when the tumbler is filled with liquid, posing a potential risk of serious injury. The interaction between the solution and the tumbler may also result in elevated levels of iron, chromium and nickel. A range of health effects has been associated with ingestion of these substances, including burning of the lips, tongue, throat, stomach, and other tissue damage, and nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. Health effects associated with skin contact with these substances include blistering, burns, pain, and redness. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tumbler and call this toll-free number for further information: 1 (866) 846-1778; or email If you are experiencing any symptoms, you should seek medical attention. Visit the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety website for more information on sulfuric and phosphoric acid and potential symptoms of exposure: Consumer safety is our top priority. Together with Sunscope and NÜTRL Canada, we are working with Health Canada to proactively notify consumers.

Swag for memorable virtual events.

As we continue to embrace remote working environments, physical distancing, and an accelerated increase in digital adoption, we face the ongoing challenge of finding ways to create tangible connections with our customers in the absence of face-to-face engagement.

Virtual Events

In the “before times”, nearly all (97%) B2B marketers indicated that in-person events had a major impact on their ability to achieve their business goals.1 Fast forward two years and more than 90% of event marketers now have plans to include virtual events as a part of their brand strategy.2

With the understanding that virtual events are here to stay within the immediate future, and that the virtual experience will likely remain a part of events even when in-person experiences return, how can we create engaging and memorable encounters in a virtual setting?

Extend the virtual experience

Providing attendees with thank-you gifts and swag bags is a valuable but sometimes overlooked part of the tangible event experience – whether it is in-person, virtual, or hybrid. For your thought-leadership events, encourage attendance and create anticipation for the occasion by sending your registered participants a teaser gift in advance. You’ve worked hard to create an identity for your event that will resonate with your customers, and merchandise can help take the experience further by reinforcing your brand’s messaging.

Offering meaningful merchandise that continues to engage after they have left the virtual space will help further the connection customers have with your brand. A follow-up thank-you gift not only extends the memorable occasion; it will also remind participants of important takeaways from your sessions and give your team an opportunity to continue the conversation and nurture the business relationship.

Engaging associates at conferences

Looking at internal events, many companies have had to adapt and reimagine their national employee conferences and meetings to fit within the virtual space. This has led to a couple of challenges. The first is finding ways to celebrate the achievements of your associates and effectively share messaging and strategy for the year without the panache of in-person festivities. The second is that your team will miss out on the excitement of seeing colleagues they don’t regularly engage with, and simply creating common ground for associates to band together and connect.

Providing your associates with conference gifts is a great way to introduce the event theme, messaging, and give them something special in lieu of experiences that cannot be recreated in a virtual setting.

Personalized Products

A customized kit delivered to everyone’s homes will set the tone for what is to come and create a memorable interaction from the start with a curated unboxing experience. Team uniforms can unite everyone in on-screen sessions, while a customized notebook with featured content from your meetings is a great takeaway to remind participants of the learnings from the event, and gives them something to take notes and doodle in. Including healthy snacks in your kit will help them get through a long day of sessions, and a trendy tech gadget, like a selfie light, makes for a fun gift that can be used after the workday is over.
