Green Signs Educate Public about Sustainable Architecture December 1, 2010 Resources Eco-friendly “green signs” to educate and recognize Hillside, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2010 Eco-friendly “green signs” already help the environment. Now, they are helping educate the public about green design and building practices and a wide variety of new green signage products are available to help reach this goal. Architectural sign manufacturer Impact Signs is promoting green building practices… using eco-friendly signs. When visitors enter a green building or facility, they can learn more about the environmental considerations that went into the design and construction by reading the story on – appropriately – “green” signage. Earth-friendly signage is not new, and as more builders go green and hope to earn environmental certification for their buildings, Impact Signs is doing its part to help. Building owners are encouraged to educate occupants and visitors about what makes the building “green” – and what better way to display this than on “green” signs. “We are thrilled to be working with forward-thinking architects, designers and builders who are leading the charge toward sustainable building practices,” says Impact Signs VP Shabbir Moosabhoy, “and we know our green sign products can help build a more sustainable future, and at the same time, help building owners earn sustainability credits toward their projects.” Impact Signs takes its environmental responsibility seriously. As an active member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and also the Society of Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD), the company has made many environmentally conscious changes in the production of custom business signs, such as using low-voltage, long-lasting LED lighting; using recycled metals for dimensional letters and plaques; and using eco friendly plastics such as 3form materials for interior office signs. Impact Signs is also a pioneer in using solar panels to illuminate lighted signs. To learn more, visit Impact Signs website. For more information about green sign options at your location, contact us!
