Since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted, the signage industry has almost exclusively used acrylic plastic for ADA-compliant signs. While plastic seems cost-effective upfront, its association with fossil fuels and recycling difficulty exponentially increases its expense in the long run.
In U.S. commercial buildings alone, at least 243 million pounds of plastic ADA signs are in use today. While this is excellent in promoting accessibility, as existing buildings are renovated or torn down, these signs will be tossed into a landfill and become an unfair burden for future generations.
Green Dot Sign® was founded to address this challenge.
Because our green office signs are made of real, responsibly harvested FSC® wood, they are about 99% biodegradable and renewable by weight. Additionally, every green sign reduces plastic consumption by 250 grams compared to a traditional ADA sign.
