green recycling at a trade show

How Green is Your Trade Show Booth?

In 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency estimated that the Trade Show Industry was the second largest producer of waste by volume after construction. In the US, this waste was estimated at 600,000 tons of waste a year (1). It’s easy to see why, single-use banner stands and exhibit materials, lots of glossy brochures, and promotional gifts often made of plastic all quickly add up and a lot of it ended up in landfill.
