Going Green in an Industry of Silver Solutions: When You Go Green, It Looks Good

Going Green in an Industry of Silver Solutions

In many states, it is trendy to recycle.  

I went to Portland recently, and felt cool when I was given only recyclable bags for my grocery’s. I also felt cool when I was able to turn away said bags. In a very sly way I would look at the store clerk, shake my head and say, “No sir, I do not need a bag for my t-shirt and Portland keychain. You can keep the bag, and give it to the next person.” That person obviously wouldn’t be as trendy as me.

It was an interesting feeling to be trendy while doing something that was beneficial for the environment. However, I think plenty of times we do trendy things that aren’t actually benefiting anything in particular. 

It looks good to go green. 

To the retail store clerk ringing in my Portland Memorabilia, it looked good. 

To the random Portlander’s watching me carry my t-shirt and key chain, it looked good. And I know that they know I refused a bag, and that they think its trendy. I also imaged that every Portlander was looking at my t-shirt, then shifting their gaze up to my eyes to give me that half-way smile and nod as if saying “We approve.”  

Most importantly, to the actual environment, it looks good that I refused that bag. I made an impact, small obviously, but we have to start somewhere. 

Not only does it apply to me and you as consumers, but it also applies to us in our trade show display marketing. 

While it may seem completely different in the Exhibit Industry, it’s actually not that different. It’s still trendy to go green.

Going green in an industry of silver solutions is VERY trendy right now. With so many of the products being used for today’s exhibits being non-recyclable, green solutions are being sought after like vegan ice cream in a dairy-farming community. Yet, when I think of green solutions, the most beautiful trade show exhibits tend not to come to mind first.

So, I wanted to change your perception (as well as mine) and show you what a couple green booths look like.
