Valencia, CA (Aug. 22, 2013) PDC, the global leader of innovative identification solutions, has released red silicone wristbands designed with the words “DRUG FREE” and a ribbon icon in preparation for Red Ribbon Week, which will be observed October 23-31, 2013. Since 1988, Red Ribbon Week has been celebrated annually to encourage communities and schools to educate youth, encourage participation in drug prevention activities, and to deliver a message of hope. PDC’s Red Ribbon Week wristbands offer a visible reminder to people who have made a personal commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
“The wristbands are soft and durable, constructed from 100% red silicone, which makes them comfortable enough to wear for months on end—serving as a positive reminder even long after Red Ribbon Week has ended,” said Edwin Baljeu, Sales and Marketing Manager for PDC. Silicone Red Ribbon Week wristbands are offered in both child (7”) and adult (8”) sizes and are sold in packs of 100, ideal for schools and fundraising. The rewearable wristbands can be ordered online and are in stock and ready to ship the next business day after placing an order. The “Drug Free” slogan and ribbon design are debossed into the wristband and filled with white ink, which makes the positive message eye-catching and bold.
“By offering the Red Ribbon Week wristbands, PDC is honored to have the opportunity to encourage students to live a healthy lifestyle by wearing the wristband each day as a positive reminder of their pledge to live drug free,” said Baljeu. “Kids love to wear the bands as a bragging right and conversation starter among their peers.”
In addition to silicone, PDC also offers non-transferable stock design Red Ribbon Week wristbands made from sturdy vinyl and plastic. The wristbands can be worn for the entire week-long observance and feature a one-time locking snap to ensure the bands cannot be removed without scissors.
