Today, more and more people are putting in efforts to reduce the negative impact humans have on the environment and we are seeing a larger number of companies taking steps and making changes to contribute to the movement to reduce waste to help the environment. There are many changes companies can make to reduce their carbon footprint and choosing a custom modular trade show booth is one example that is an environmentally-conscious choice.
Reduce and Re-use with Modular Trade Show Displays
Choosing a modular trade show display that you can use time after time, trade show after trade show, no matter the size, is a fantastic way to reduce your waste and be more eco-friendly. If you also want to reduce, reuse and recycle, and be known for it, here are some of the essential tips to consider
Lessen Your Impact by using Eco-Friendly Trade Show Display Lighting
Many portable or modular displays are easy to design and quite user-friendly, but no display is going to wow your future clients without the right lighting. You can lessen your negative impact on the environment by using lightbulbs that are specifically designed to decrease the emount of electricity required.
Using eco-friendly lighting in your trade show exhibit will not only help our beautiful planet, but it will also save your pocketbook by consuming less electricity.
Print Your Promotional Materials on Recycled Paper
When you are involved with any marketing campaigns, you will need to produce several forms of promotional materials to get the word out. If you are planning to distribute business cards, brochures, pamphlets etc., you may want to consider printing them on recycled paper with eco-friendly ink to help reduce waste.
Just as using eco-friendly lighting saves money, often so does use recycled paper. It is also important to tell the readers that the materials are recyclable, including a small sentence at the bottom of your promotional materials is a good idea, letting them know to recycle and not just throw in the trash.
Multi-Purpose and Multi-Use Trade Show Displays
Modular trade show displays are a great way to reduce waste as stated above because it eliminates the need to purchase multiple trade show displays for different events. Many trade show exhibits will include banner stands that state useful information for attendees and clients. Rather than buying disposable banner stands, invest in banners that you can use again at your next event, or even display in your office or showroom. Avoid putting the event name on your banners, or the dates, to ensure that you are able to continue using the banner in different locations.
Use Rentals to Lessen Your Negative Environmental Impact
Many large companies will purchase trade show display furniture and materials and may never use them again. It is a good idea to partner with your custom trade show display company to inquire about materials and furniture that you are able to rent. Many companies, including Beaumont & Co., are able to supply a large variety of rental products, which will help reduce your waste at your next trade show or event. If you know the items are of no use to you in the upcoming months, renting might be the best option for you, and will be a step in the right direction to helping our planet.
The words reduce, reuse and recycle seem like a catchphrase, but we need to really take them into consideration and they should be applied to the design of your trade show exhibit and marketing events. By using eco-friendly lighting at your next event is reducing your electricity consumption, you can reuse your products such as banner stands in several different locations, and recycle by using recycled paper and eco-friendly ink. By sticking to these simple tips, you can go a long way toward helping our planet, and at the same time, you are able to encourage the companies around you to do the same.
