EarthFirst.com: Get On the Schwaggin’ Wagon!

Posted by andy on July 22nd, 2008

Schwaggin’ shout out to EarthFirst.com for coming out and supporting The Schwaggin’ Wagon at Twiistup4 and SummerMash LA last week. EarthFirst.com knows that even a little bit of green sustainability goes a long way:

If you’ve ever been to a convention, you probably have some of this junk sitting around your office or home: mugs, hats, pens, calendars and other items emblazoned with corporate logos.  You may use some of them for a little while but chances are, before long they’ll end up in the trash.  The brains behind The Schwaggin’ Wagon, Michael Liskin and David Preciado, realized how wasteful that really is one evening over some Thai food, and decided to do something about it.  The Schwaggin’ Wagon, which runs on sponsorships, travels to conventions and takes all that schwag that no one wants and donates it to charity.

What little things does you consciously do in the name of sustainability?

JamBase Makes Mashable Music

Posted by Daniel Hartman on July 19th, 2008

JamBase, a music fan site since 1998, is the go-to source for live music information on the web, boasting the largest database of music concert tour dates in the U.S. JamBase is a founding sponsor of The Schwaggin’ Wagon, and we are honored that they continued their support with this week’s L.A. run. We were thrilled to have a special appearance at the Mashable party by JamBase Director of Biz Dev Julie Blaustein, who wore her lei and Schwaggin Wagon sticker with apparent pride. JamBase provides an easy concert search tool on its site, while serving up quality articles, album
reviews, artist interviews, festival info, and other great content.

Did you ever think you’d hear us say we are The Schwaggin’ SUV? For this Tech-Event-Week in Los Angeles, we are proud to team up with Eco-Limo to create the Schwaggin’ Eco-Wagon! We will be ridin’ around Los Angeles in a Bio-Diesel Ford Excursion SUV, compliments of our sponsor, Eco-Limo.
Eco-Limo\'s Ford Excursion Bio Diesel

Why are we so pleased at this sponsorship/partnership? It’s not because they were chosen to service the Academy Awards for the last four years. It’s that Eco-Limo is one of only 6 companies in California featured on Google’s Google Green site, and last year they received the Grand Prize in Sustainability by the City of Santa Monica, recognized as well by the California State Senate and Assembly! In short, they rock the eco-world. They are exactly what we were looking for in terms of transportation.

The ROI of Edible Schwag

Posted by Daniel Hartman on July 3rd, 2008

Edible Schwag?
Yesterday on iMedia, Leah Messinger summarized some killer schwag success stories, including hand-delivered cupcakes by ValueClick, in an article called The ROI of Quality Swag. Edible schwag is a great concept, and cupcakes are still in, and we are proud to have made that connection ourselves last week, so don’t think we stole the idea if you see us selling cupcakes to benefit charity in the future! The point here is that anything memorable and eco-conscious makes good schwag. There are a number of green schwag producers out there, and we hope they will sponsor The Schwaggin’ Wagon, because our message is their message.
