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.

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.
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®.
