Since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted, the signage industry has almost exclusively used acrylic plastic for ADA-compliant signs. While plastic is cost-effective and chemical resistant, it is derived from fossil fuels and difficult to recycle after being made into signage.
In U.S. commercial buildings alone, at least 243 million pounds of plastic ADA-compliant signs are in use today. As existing buildings are renovated or torn down, these signs will be tossed into a landfill for future generations to deal with.
Green Dot Sign was founded to address this challenge. Our unique signs are about 99% biodegradable by weight and every Green Dot sign reduces plastic consumption by 250 grams versus a traditional ADA sign. Our innovative product is a better ADA signage option.
