Mothers Room Sign Purpose and Materials
A mothers room sign leads the way for expectant and nursing mothers to have the privacy they sometimes require. The benefits of having a room dedicated to recent mothers go far beyond raising a healthy populace that breast feed and bond with their mothers; as the USDA says, mother come back to work sooner and are happier on the job.
Additionally, employers are required by law to provide mothers with space to lactate that is not the bathroom so most businesses with an eye toward stake holder engagement have mothers rooms and as a permanent room they are required to be identified with signs detailed in §703 of the 2010 ADA standards, like this one.
As with all our signs, we challenge you to put your self in the shoes of your stake holder, and imagine if all else is equal, would you rather walk through a door with this mothers room sign, or a cheap plastic sign the same white and blue features you’ve seen for the past 20 years? Which one leads to the brightest future?
This ADA sign is eligible for our end of life recycling program. When your mothers room sign needs change simply ship your signs to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
We first plane the raised sign elements off the wood base and dispose of them responsibly. Next, the wood sign base is shredded and the wood fibers get re-used as animal bedding, then as fertilizer, and finally they return to the earth as soil. We hope you can appreciate this is more responsible compared to the fossil fuel derived plastics used in most ADA signs. To make it easy to participate in our product recycling program we extend a 10% Green Dot Sign® credit for the value of the returned signs. To learn more or get started, visit our Eco-Friendly Approach page and expand the “recycling” section at the bottom.
