Ecofriendly Attributes of Recyclable Banners Printed with Water Based Latex Ink April 11 2018

As a company specializing in sustainable and ecofriendly tradeshow displays, Boothster is mindful of the ecological footprints that go into every component of our custom tradeshow booth designs.  As we have written about before, tradeshow banners are not only the most visible part of your tradeshow display, but often they also add the most pollution.  Traditional vinyl banners are highly toxic and harmful to people and the environment. That is why Boothster and Recyclable Banners Co pride themselves on using only the latest environmentally friendly banner printing technology.

Because traditional vinyl banners are not easily recyclable or safely disposable, many tradeshow exhibitors find themselves struggling with the dilemma of what to do with their old, highly toxic, non-biodegradable vinyl tradeshow banners at the end of the tradeshow. It was with this dilemma in mind that Boothster strives to discover the most ecofriendly printed tradeshow banner materials that are 100% recyclable and biodegradable, while retaining the good qualities of vinyl such as durability, moisture resistance and color retention.  However, in order to completely replace harmful vinyl banners, it is important to make sure the ink being used is environmentally friendly as well!

That is why Boothster uses HP 831 Water-based Latex Inks which are “ECOLOGO” and “GREENGUARD” certified. ECOLOGO Certifications are voluntary, multi-attribute, lifecycle based environmental certifications that indicate a product has undergone rigorous scientific testing, exhaustive auditing, or both, to prove its compliance with stringent, third-party, environmental performance standards. The GREENGUARD certification  shows that HP 831 Latex Inks are certified to be free of harmful substances, have low chemical emissions and help reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure while aiding in the creation of healthier indoor environments! HP Water Based Latex Inks carry a broad set of credentials addressing the full spectrum of environmental concerns; from ink chemistry and indoor air quality—for both print production and display—to lifecycle considerations, earning recognition as preferred by environmentally conscious marketers around the world!
