It’s no secret that we are living in a time of climate emergency. As climate change worsens, hazardous weather events and becoming more frequent and severe, and our eco footprint has a lot to do with it.
Thankfully, there are ways we can reduce our environmental impact, and you as a business can chime in on the change.
Here, we explore how you can reduce your carbon footprint as a business using floor graphics.
Invest in durability
You can have the most state-of-the-art floor graphics, but if they’re not made from high-quality durable materials, you’re only setting yourself up for disappointment. Not only that but having to change your flooring often generates more waste, uses more resources, and is generally unfriendly to the environment.
That’s why investing in high-quality durable materials can extend the life span of your floor graphics. Novograf’s flooring graphics are scuff-resistant, slip-proof, and hard-wearing, which adds extra durability to our products. In retail, office, and hotel spaces especially, floor graphics can get a lot of wear and tear. Our floor graphics can withstand heavy footfall for a long time, thus retaining their original design and quality.
Invest in sustainable materials
Standard flooring materials can be not only costly but can also have a big environmental impact. Flooring laminate and synthetic carpets, for example, pollute the environment and emit harmful chemicals into the air.
But having the flooring you’ve always dreamed of in your establishment doesn’t have to come at the cost of the environment and your health. Instead, you can install sustainable flooring graphics.
At Novograf, we strive to use non-PVC products where possible. Our base materials comprise of 30% recycled materials, and we’re working towards developing 100% recyclable products.
All these small sustainability measures combined have resulted in <0.73% wastage in the last 12 months and challenging targets for the future.
We are continuously working on becoming more sustainable and sourcing eco-friendly materials as an integral part of the supply chain. That way, we can provide you with high-quality, durable products with sustainability in mind, and together, we can work towards a better future.
Replace and repair
What happens when your flooring gets damaged? You have to replace it. Imagine you’ve invested a lot in a custom floor drawing or mosaic, and someone drops something on it and damages it. It will cost you even more to replace it.
Floor graphics are easy-to-install and can be designed to suit your brand and preferences. You can not only achieve the brand-matching results you’ve dreamed of but also ensure that your floor is well-protected from wear and tear.
If your floor graphics get damaged, they can easily be replaced or repaired, thus minimising your carbon footprint. Moreover, floor graphics allow you to adapt your store or hotel to seasonal themes and events with minimal effort and resources.
Sustainable flooring graphics are a great way to add personality to your store, office, or hotel space without breaking the bank and harming the environment. In fact, investing in high-quality durable materials that can easily be replaced or repaired is the key to ensuring product longevity and reducing your carbon footprint.
