With all the news about global warming and climate change, it is time to start considering ways to reduce our carbon footprint in personal and work life. Statistics show that 70% percent of Americans believe that global warming is very real. Off course, 92% percent of all statistics are made up on the spot, so take it for what it’s worth. When it comes to your ability to contribute to the betterment of the world in relation to your business, it’s vital to sit up and take notice
Benchmark Displays began way back in 1983 as Taymar Plastics. Successfully designing, making and marketing virtually millions of plastic brochure holders, promotional literature racks and product displays was the mainstay of our business for more than twenty five years. Then, the national conversation turned to bulging earth-fills and environmental sustainability. First a few and then many of our customers in the pharmaceutical, financial, food, retail product manufacturing, automotive and national retailer industries told us that new, internal company policies required that environmentally friendly and recyclable materials be used for their point-of-purchase brochure holders and custom product displays. Acrylic and Plexiglas displays were no longer welcome in certain settings.
Paperboard packaging was the obvious and simple solution. Chipboard or cardboard can be made from recycled newspapers and corrugated shipping containers or made from virgin wood chips but in either case, it’s biodegradable and eco-friendly. Benchmark Displays, our new brand and identity, quickly added the capacity to furnish all types of brochure holders and product displays produced in our family-owned factory. These displays can be screen or digitally printed with company logos and product advertising if the requirement is small in quantity or litho printed if the quantities are larger.
So, if you are looking for ways to display your products and promotional literature while still being conscientious of the environment, then cost-effective paperboard displays are a great bet!
We only have one world to live in, (unless you know something that we don’t) so it might be time we all try a little harder to take care of it. While recycling has long been touted as a way to help the environment, we are finding out ways to reduce our carbon footprint in everything that we do. Cars are becoming more economical in regards to fuel consumption, for example, you can now get a car that is the size of a large shoebox, which reduces the amount of fuel you will need (for obvious reasons) and more people are choosing mass transit or carpool as a method of transportation. There are more and more packaging options being made out of recycled products, and because brands typically update their packaging every couple of years, cost is no longer a large company’s biggest concern.
The good news? It is possible to do your part when it comes to your business, Benchmark Displays is more than happy to do its part in reducing our own little carbon footprint!
