When we are thinking of ways to become more economical and reduce our environmental impact, we often think of purchasing more eco-friendly products, for example those made of recycled or biodegradable materials. This is a step in the right direction which we fully support (and will continue to invest in our own range of eco USB sticks) however, what if the key to making a real impact might be to reduce our overall consumption, rather than always demanding more?
You may be thinking that this is great in theory, but how can we make practical changes like this in a modern world when you have marketing material to distribute, or software updates to issue? Here at USB2U, we are always looking for new ways to support our customers to make sustainable choices, and one simple swap might be to re-use USB sticks that have been used for a previous project and give them a new lease of life by re-loading them with new brochures, software or other data.
Those of you who have worked with us before may know that we offer a free data-loading service of up to 500MB for all standard delivery orders of branded USB sticks. Sometimes, USB sticks are used once and then packed away in a drawer and as a business you might be left with perfectly good memory sticks that could be used again. USB sticks are by nature re-useable, so why not maximize on this?
Here at USB2U, we are set up to help you get the most out of your USBs. For a small fee, our team can wipe any existing data from your old USB sticks* and re-load them with new content, ready for their new use. Our state of the art duplication machines can perform a simple copy of your data, or if required (and the components of the USB sticks you have are compatible) we can even lock data onto them. Not only would this reduce waste, but it would also be significantly cheaper to simply re-load existing memory sticks than to purchase new ones. Win win! Take a look at our data duplication page to find out more about how this service works.

SD Card Duplication
A new service available from USB2U for this year is SD card duplication. We have recently added blank or pre-loaded SD cards as a standalone product to purchase on our website, and we are proud to be offering in house SD card duplication to our clients in 2022. Our SD cards are available with a minimum order quantity of just 50 pcs and in capacities ranging from 1GB – 64Gb. SD cards are available in either blue or black, and can be printed with a company logo. We can also supply individual branded cases on request to keep the SD cards protected, ready to be re-loaded again in the future. SD cards are a great option if you are looking to duplicate images, videos or other sizeable data as a simple copy.
USB Sticks and SD Cards offer our customers a re-useable way to distribute vital data to clients or staff, and with some careful planning and generic branded logos or messaging, can be re-used for many years to come. We hope many more customers will take advantage of USB2U’s fantastic data duplication service this year in an effort to reduce consumption and make the most of what we already have. Get in touch with our friendly team today to find out more on how we can support you with this.
