Retail chain Woolworths has announced that 30 percent of its in-store signage is now made from renewable raw materials and contains recycled fibres from post industrial and post consumer waste. The company says it began using recyclable board for store signage and displays in 2006 as an ecological alternative to the standard plastic commonly used in signage.

It says it is also investigating printing with water-based or vegetable-based inks in the near future. “We are constantly working with suppliers in the printing industry to find innovative advancements that reduce our ecological footprint,” says decor production manager Chantall Klaasen. The recyclable board is manufactured by Xanita, an eco-friendly board manufacturer.
