Suwanee, GA (PRWEB) May 14, 2008
Suwanee, GA-based displayit.com announces it has become an authorized reseller of Eco-Systems sustainable exhibit products for the trade show marketing industry. The Eco-Systems product line is the nation's first green-built portable modular system . It was developed with environmentally and socially responsible materials which are benchmarked to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system of the U.S. Green Building Council.
The Eco-Systems product line is created from a variety of materials such as recyclable aluminum, recycled soda bottles, and rapidly renewable bamboo. Display producers within the trade show industry have seen a growing demand for products that are both green and sustainable. Josh Axelberd, President/CEO of Displayit.com, thinks that Eco-Systems products are a great first step for the industry. "The trade show marketing industry is pretty tough on the environment as a whole. The traditional trade show produces a tremendous amount of waste, plus we use lots of fossil fuels transporting both people and exhibits to our events. There has been progress made over the last few years in terms of making exhibits lighter for shipping purposes, but we haven't done a lot in terms of keeping old exhibit materials out of landfills. Eco-Systems has made great progress in this area by using materials that are both rapidly renewable and sustainable."
Displayit views the introduction of the Eco-Systems product line to its customers as the first step in its effort to offer exhibitors more environmentally friendly products. "This is a big change for our industry and I see this as our first step in the green movement. We are going to have to do some work on educating additional clients on the importance and benefits of these products and that will take some time. As we move forward we hope to take some additional steps, such as offering additional green materials and also introducing a complete exhibit recycling program where we can make sure that old exhibits stay out of landfills," said Axelberd.
