GovDocs Goes Green with Eco-Friendly Labor Law Posters
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (April 20, 2023) EAGAN, MINN. — GovDocs, a leader in employment law compliance management, is committed to environmental sustainability. And that is exemplified through its eco-friendly labor law posters. The biodegradable material is designed to meet the needs of GovDocs’ clients while reducing their environmental impact.
The material used for GovDocs’ labor law posters is 100% biodegradable and begins to break down immediately after being discarded. This is a stark contrast to laminated posters, which can take an estimated 1,500 years to degrade. GovDocs estimates that for an organization with 1,000 locations, using biodegradable posters can keep more than 2,000 pounds of garbage per year out of landfills.
Combined with a streamlined shipping process, the unique poster material from GovDocs reduces annual waste, including:
- 366,590 shipping tubes weighing 685 tons
- 659,501 posters weighing 53 tons
- 733,180 plastic end caps weighing 3.6 tons
These numbers represent a significant reduction of waste sent to landfills each year. In addition to using a unique biodegradable poster material, GovDocs has also implemented a streamlined shipping process that reduces packaging waste and increases delivery performance. By shipping posters in envelopes, GovDocs has significantly reduced the amount of waste sent to landfills each year, making a meaningful contribution to a greener future.
With GovDocs, clients can rest assured that their compliance management needs are being met while also contributing to environmental sustainability.
“We have heard from many clients about their need to increase sustainability and reduce their impact on the environment across their organization, including requests to get help from their partner suppliers,” said Zach Stabenow, founder and CEO of GovDocs. “We are excited to deliver to our customers a labor law poster product that is not only compliant and durable, but also environmentally sustaining.”
GovDocs’ biodegradable labor law posters are also designed to withstand heavy wear and tear, making them perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. The posters are resistant to tearing, water, grease, chemicals and even UV rays, with edges that won’t curl, delaminate or fray over time.
The eco-friendly poster material also features a matte finish, reducing glare and providing a better reading experience, particularly under fluorescent lighting. The three-column layout allows employees to quickly scan individual postings.
