Is Eco-Friendly Retail Visual Merchandising Materials…An Oxymoron?

Retail Visuals Sustainability

In the fast paced world of retail visual merchandising, can you have great color and be environmentally friendly too? Are there alternatives for all the variations of marketing materials used in the world of visual merchandising?

Thankfully there are…with a number of new materials now available in the marketplace, you can have great color and be more eco-friendly too. There are a myriad of new products with varying degrees of environmental impact. They range from being recyclable, to biodegradable, to compostable. Almost any project now has an alternative so your company can be environmentally responsible. Some examples of more eco-friendly alternatives include: falcon board for Hex, Bioflex for flex, Stoplight for poster paper, Insite for foam, and even PET/PVC free vinyl for banners. This, combined with sustainable chain-of-custody paper allows you to field a campaign in the most impactful way possible — with bright colors and heightened detail – while still protecting the environment.

It is also important to produce your marketing collateral at an environmentally responsible manufacturer who has experience printing with these materials, so you maintain color consistency and don’t negatively impact the campaign. Sandy Alexander has tested a multitude of eco-friendly substrates and has printed with them for years, so you can be assured that you will have no fall-off in quality as you strive to be environmentally responsible.
