Ames Convention Center Custom Tote bag

Tote for Ames Iowa Convention Center

Businesses in Ames, Iowa have been nation leaders in: energy and water conservation, transportation, waste reduction, indoor and outdoor environmental quality, carbon footprint, and community engagement. 

For the past 150 years, Ames businesses have made smart choices when it comes to sustainability efforts. Now, businesses are encouraged to help celebrate our city’s sesquicentennial by making an additional commitment through participation in the “Smart 150 Challenge.”

Ecologic Designs custom produced hundreds of Tote bags for promoting The Ames Convention Center’s expansion into the Iowa State Center, with addition of the Scheman Building and construction of more exhibit space. Vinyl was up-cycled from convention center exhibition banners and repurposed into tote bags -handy for grocery shopping or lugging items to and fro. 

The City has been trying to convey the social and economic benefits of their convention center, are are now awaiting a City hall vote to proceed.
