WORLD NATURE CONSERVATION DAY.

July 28 – 2022.
Today is World Nature Conservation Day! This date is celebrated every year on July 28. The primary purpose of this event is to stress the importance of protecting and preserving nature and its resources to ensure we maintain a healthy and stable society.
Almost every human activity is somehow born, propelled, or sustained by natural resources. A healthy environment is, therefore, a key component of human society. It is vital to remind us that, no matter what industry we work in, our hobbies, or what we do or don’t do, it is of utmost importance to minimize the negative environmental trace of our activities and protect nature.
Likewise, in signage, this is of no less importance. Every sign installed is made from natural resources, and the way those signs are designed will influence how long those resources can be used and whether they can be recycled or reused at end-of-life. Despite how small of an impact a sign can have compared to other resources, it is still important to consider how signage can contribute to preserving natural resources and protecting nature.
At Modulex, we consider each stage in our product development and lifecycle and always try to pre-emptively incorporate material, design and graphic elements that increase the durability of our products and lower their environmental impact. Small choices like using recycled and high-quality materials, applying modular design and offering upcycling services all contribute to ensuring signage products are durable, recyclable and designed to preserve the natural resources used to produce them.
To achieve this, we offer products made from renewable substrates such as FSC paper or recycled products, ensuring that raw materials are harvested sustainably. Our modular sign systems are designed to be separated, updated, and recycled as an alternative to disposal or total renovation. Equally, our quality standards ensure that all materials, graphics and components used in Modulex products will allow a sign to be used for many years without renovation.
By considering environmental responsibility at the core of our product development, we can offer signage products that preserve the natural resources used to produce them and have a lower environmental impact. If sustainability is a priority in any signage project, Modulex is the right partner to achieve that!
