So much so, that now there is demand for “greener” options in nearly every aspect of outdoor advertising.

Consequently, the sign industry found itself seeking solutions for these demands. New, more eco-friendly materials and supplies are produced by manufacturers who are dedicated to sustainable development. Likewise, many of our clients prefer to engage with environmentally like-minded businesses. For example, Paxton Signs constructed the Little Bear sign, pictured, using recycled cedar fence pickets.

Green alternatives are cost effective

As with most trends, the demand for greener sign options will continue to impact mostly small businesses. Presently, Paxton Signs offers interesting choices in materials and processes: instead of plastic sign material, we offer glass; instead of sign synthetics, recycled wood is much more interesting; why fill up landfills with vinyl product waste when simple, honest paint adds more interest and life expectancy to signs. In many cases, these three alternatives will be more cost effective. And this saves advertising dollars.

As long as there is an audience, there will be a demand for greener options. Presently, that audience likes sustainable options. This increase in environmental consciousness means that a green, sustainable future in the sign industry is here to stay.
