Sustainable Exterior Signs that Stand the Test of Time

Since the Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted, the sign industry has almost exclusively used plastic for ADA compliant signs. But typical ADA signs are made from fossil fuel-derived plastics that are not recyclable. "This means most signs you see may look nice now, but they have a whole lot of ugly behind and ahead of them– but not a Green Dot Sign®," Nussbaum remarked.

While plastic seems cost-effective at first, it harms our planet and health and costs more in the long run. In U.S. commercial buildings alone, at least 243 millions pounds of plastic ADA signs are in use today. As existing buildings are renovated these signs are tossed into a landfill will take at least 500 years to biodegrade. Investing in durable ADA signs is a smart move for you and the planet.
Exterior ADA signage is most often used for restrooms and other exterior-facing rooms in parks, zoos, swimming pools, sport facilities and similar venues.
