Siegel Display Products, which provides displays for trade shows, is cutting waste, reducing energy use and offering more products with recycled materials. One of their green products is a bamboo banner stand printed with recycled inks.
Online PR News – 09-November-2010 – – MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- Siegel Display Products is taking the next step in its longtime commitment to environmentally sound business practices.
The company, which provides a wide range of products for trade show displays, including panel displays, exhibit furnishings, banner stands and literature stands, has analyzed the environmental impact of every part of its operation, from catalog design to product packaging. As a result, the company has made significant changes to several aspects of its business.
The changes include a redesign of its catalog to reduce the amount of ink and paper used, the streamlining of promotional efforts to eliminate sending wasteful mail and catalogs, and the use of efficient fluorescent lighting in all office and warehouse areas, requiring less than one-third of the energy that traditional incandescent lighting uses.
"Our effort to 'go green' isn't new -- in fact, we've been committed to reducing waste for several years, particularly office paper waste. Now we've expanded the efforts to include carefully choosing our suppliers and seeking out products that are manufactured in a sustainable fashion and are locally sourced, which reduces trucking emissions. In addition, our customers can share in our environmental efforts by choosing any of our growing number of green products made from recycled materials," said Jason Foss, customer service representative for Siegel Display Products (http://www.siegeldisplay.com/).
An example of the company's eco-friendly products is the bamboo retractable banner stand, which features recycled vinyl banner material and recycled inks. While any trade show exhibitor would find them functional and attractive, Foss noted, the stands are especially appropriate for exhibitors such as environmental organizations and alternative energy companies.
In addition, the company's supplier for floor and tabletop pop-up displays will be offering ecologically friendly options for fabric and full-color mural panels. The polyester fabric is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Also offered are floor mats made with 20 percent recycled rubber content and several styles of outdoor message boards made from recycled polyethylene.
Because Siegel Display Products intends to make its shift to green practices a permanent one, the company has designated a 'Green Team Advocate' whose role is to ensure that employees and suppliers remain aware of the company's policies regarding environmentally sound business practices.
