Environmental Challenge Issued

  • Is there any talk at the corporate level of developing a non-destructive form of visual marker? Paint, vinyl, and inks are all incredibly toxic to manufacture, distribute, apply (less so for vinyl), and then remove/clean-up and dispose of at the end stages of their lives. As responses to climate change begin to take governmental form, sooner or later environmentalists are going to figure out just how toxic this stuff is and demand regulations on usage. The industry needs a reasonable non-destructive option. — Jake Zani, Rule Signs & Graphics, Randolph, VT
