Eco-friendly Stageboard…Coming to a theatre Near You!
Mainstream pop music, movies, television, theatre; all of it can easily be judged from an armchair.
The entertainment industry — in the eyes of the environmentalist — exists for two reasons: 1) to entertain us while wasting materials 2) to try to “entertain” us even more by wasting even more materials. But, that’s just an opinion from an armchair.
Nonetheless, recent innovations in eco-friendly building have helped ease this age-old problem. More engineeers, tradesmen, artchitects and hobbyists are choosing to use “recycled materials” over natural wood.
Renew Resources has listed the top three reasons why businesses — including the entertainment industry — are investing in eco-friendly stageboard.
Eco-friendly stageboard is certified by the Canadian Government and U.S. Pentagon. Stageboard has also received the most-coveted “Eco-Mark” in the world by the Japanese Government EPA.
When businesses use government certified eco-friendly stageboard, businesses benefit from a new unique sales point (USP); carrying more market water and marketing themselves as an organization who uses the highest grade of eco-friendly material in the market today.
Unlike real wood, eco-friendly stageboard doesn’t crack, splinter or break. It doesn’t require high-maintenance chemicals that damage the environment; renowned for lasting longer than regular wood. Ultimately, the more durable your building materials are the less materials you use.
BETTER THAN WOOD
Unlike real wood, stageboard is immune to weather damage. It doesn’t decay or warp or splinter. Stageboard is built from recycled materials as well; preventing abrasion while also serving you excellent acoustics and sound deadening. Builders have also found stageboard takes nails or screws equivalent to or better than real wood with zero pre-drilling required.
With the green movement seeping more and more into the mainstream year after year, businesses are becoming more inclined to use eco-friendly building materials for its market appeal, sustainability and eco-mark.
In stageboard, users receive a government certified eco-mark and offer a unique sales point; staying above the competition while maximizing material minimization.
Companies like Renew Resources offer eco-friendly building materials all year around to help you save as many trees and money as possible.

There’s no doubt wooden pallets have played an important role in shaping the world’s infrastructure: real estate; bridges; skyscrapers; transportation, to just name a few — all have used wooden pallets.
However in the recent rise of the green market, wooden pallets are becoming less favourable: they’re unsanitary; they’re high-maintenance; they have a short life span.
Many engineers, architects and tradesmen today are beginning to use more reliable and long-lasting alternatives such as, eco-friendly plastic pallets.

When your eco-friendly plastic pallet break through wear-and-tear, it’s convenient to toss in your recycling pile; saving landfill space.
Plastic Pallets are weather-resistant and save you from the high-maintenance troubles wooden pallets bring you. Plastic pallets won’t absorb moisture, won’t split, rot, mildew or become infested with insects. The longer your pallets last the more money you save.
Plastic pallets were first introduced to the market in the 1960s and were used in sanitary applications for raw foods. When you use plastic pallets you’ll free yourself from all the unsanitary qualities wood bring you; giving you a more versatile functionality: the cleaner; the better.
Three billion to six billion trees are cut down every year.
