SuperGrapics – Sustainability questions
EcoFormat™ is SuperGraphics’ commitment to educate and promote the demand for eco-friendly print materials, services, and supply chain from sourcing to disposition. When you choose EcoFormat™ materials and recycling services, we guarantee that your project will result in zero landfill waste from start to finish.
No, EcoFormat™ is a sustainable print initiative introduced by the company SuperGraphics.
Currently, EcoFormat™ is offered exclusively at SuperGraphics.
Many large format materials are printed on non-recyclable plastics, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Not only are these plastics harmful to manufacture, but they continue releasing harmful toxins while they slowly break down in the landfill over the course of tens of years. The gases emitted from landfills contribute to climate change and pose a toxic threat to both humans and animals.
Through EcoFormat™, we:
- Source sustainable print materials and offer clean solutions to clients
- Ensure our recycling supply chain is clean with a true second use
- Conduct open-loop recycling workflows to reduce/eliminate the production of pre-consumer waste
- Help our customers recycle graphics at the end of use
Brands choose EcoFormat™ to ensure their graphic project is clean, eco-friendly, safe, and contributes to zero landfill waste. Sustainability is no longer being looked at as a bonus for a brand, but as an expectation. EcoFormat™ empowers brands to reduce their environmental impact and achieve their sustainability goals without hindering quality or breaking the bank.
EcoFormat™ materials are PVC-free and can be recycled to a clean second use through our recycling partnerships. We’re also working to incorporate more material options created from recycled materials.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a non-recyclable plastic that is both harmful to manufacture and biodegrade. Once PVC reaches the landfill, it takes tens of years to break down while releasing harmful toxins in the process. We’ve partnered with a local recycler that is capable of giving a clean second use to all PVC-free materials.
Nope! Before offering an EcoFormat™ material, we complete extensive testing to ensure they meet our quality standards.
To support our EcoFormat™ Initiative, we developed the EcoFormat™ Sustainability Cycle to articulate how we conduct every EcoFormat™ project sustainably. Every EcoFormat™ project follows the EcoFormat™ Sustainability Cycle to ensure the production of zero landfill waste from start to finish. Through open-loop recycling workflows and disposition supply chain partnerships, all pre- and post-consumer waste is recycled to a clean second use.
In addition to our internal practices of recycling all pre-consumer waste, we offer EcoFormat™ Recycling as a service for your used graphics. By returning post-consumer waste to our facility by delivery or a SuperGraphics’ graphic removal, we can give it a clean second use as GigaFuel.
GigaFuel is ground-up PVC-free materials that are burned as a low-carbon fuel for energy production.
EcoFormat™ Coating, powered by PURETi™, is an optional clear spray applied during the production process that turns your outdoor graphics into a self-cleaning air purifier. This solution converts nearby harmful air pollutants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into harmless minerals and gasses. Ecoformat™ Coating works for up to five years as long as it has access to humidity and light.
With open-loop recycling, materials are converted into either a new material or waste product. As SuperGraphics converts its waste to GigaFuel, a low-carbon fuel substitute, we are conducting open-loop recycling. SuperGraphics is one of the few printers in the US executing open-loop recycling for all their PVC-free waste.
With closed-loop recycling, materials are converted into the same product such as plastic bottles being recycled back into plastic bottles. Unfortunately, there are no closed-loop recycling options available for large-format recyclable plastics in the market today.
Pre-consumer waste is generated in-shop during the manufacturing or production process. This includes trimming and excess material.
Post-consumer waste refers to the waste generated by the consumer after using the product. This includes items such as packaging and graphic waste. Fortunately, SuperGraphics is capable of recycling all EcoFormat™ graphic waste through EcoFormat™ Recycling. Let’s schedule your EcoFormat™ Recycling appointment
We strive to keep EcoFormat™ material costs as close to common market materials as possible.
SuperGraphics is both SGP and EnviroStars certified.
When you choose to have Supergraphics produce, install, remove, and recycle your EcoFormat™ graphics, your project accumulates zero landfill waste from start to finish. To celebrate this sustainable achievement, we calculate the total square footage of material that is diverted from the landfill and present this to you on an EcoFormat™ Certificate of Sustainability. We hope that this certificate serves as a continual reminder of the environmental impact you made by selecting EcoFormat™.
