Recyclable Printed Banners are the Most Visible Part of Your Custom Tradeshow Booth Design February 01 2018
As the most visible part of any custom tradeshow booth, printed tradeshow banners are a great way to promote your organization’s brand, message and values. Unfortunately, many tradeshow exhibitors are not aware of what happens to their printed banners after the tradeshow comes to an end! Typically, most of the traditional, cheap banners available are made of highly toxic vinyl materials.
First invented in 1920, Vinyl or polyvinyl chloride is also known as PVC. The materials used to produce the vinyl for PVC banners are crude oil, chlorine and solvent ink. Not only are vinyl banners not easily recyclable, they produce highly toxic waste materials throughout their life-cycle. From creation to end-of-life, vinyl banners contribute significantly to the poisonous materials flooding our environment and ecosystem. During the production process of toxic vinyl tradeshow banners, many emissions are released to the environment including ethylene, ethylene dichloride, organochlorines, oxychlorination, mercury or asbestos, dioxins and phthalates. All of these dangerous chemicals have been shown to cause serious health problems in humans, including nervous system damage, liver and testicular problems and even DNA damage!
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. It was with this dilemma in mind that Boothster has strived to discover 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.
