Our long term goal is to offer ONLY 100% recycled fabric graphic on our entire product line!
Eco-Smart Sustainable Exhibits
As covered in our previous blog post on 5 reasons to use eco-friendly materials in your trade show booth, EcoSmart Sustainable Exhibits are the premier line of eco-friendly trade show displays! Manufactured in the PNW (Pacific Northwest), EcoSmart uses recycled fabric graphics, recycled aluminum, and sustainably sourced components to create the most eco-friendly displays on the market. In addition, everything is Made in the USA and designed to last a lifetime, which drastically reduces the overall carbon footprint. Another bonus with EcoSmart is every booth is designed to break down, or size up with existing components. This reduces cost and waste by utilizing already existing display structure!
EcoSmart trade show displays are custom built per order. We offer a large selection of designs so it’s easy to find a great display without designing it from scratch. Additionally, we design booths from the ground up! If you want a custom built booth, we can build it with eco-friendly materials, without compromising design or functionality!
As we continue to utilize the most eco friendly trade show displays, we are expanding our efforts to reduce waste in the trade show industry. Since we founded our company, we have focused on high quality products. Many of our customers still use frames and hardware that are over 10 years old! Using durable, high quality hardware is the first step to reduce waste. Using an already manufactured product is almost always more eco-friendly than buying a new product. A continued focus on durable, reusable hardware is key to reduce materials in the landfill. For all new products, we are working with our suppliers to find recycled and recyclable materials to replace our standard materials.
