It may seem strange to think that enamel signs, house plaques or door numbers can help you do so. But there are many reasons why signs made using traditional hand manufacturing techniques are a greener choice than other signs are.

The first is how long they last and how well they hold up against the elements. A sign made from any other material may wear out or fade very quickly. This means that it will often need to be replaced in a very short period of time. This can really increase the amount of materials that are entering dumps and landfills. While some may be recyclable, others cannot be reused and may even leach harmful materials into the water or air.

The second is that enamel signs are made with materials that do not harm the environment. The backs are made from metal and the glass powders that give them their beautiful appearance do not contain lead.

Finally, because the signs do not break down from exposure to weather, they do not leach harmful chemicals into the environment while they are hanging. A painted sign such as an address plaque or business sign may slowly allow paints or dyes to run out of them and contaminate the local environment.

If you want a beautiful and environmentally friendly way to dress up the outside of your home or business, enamel signs can help you achieve both of these goals at the same time.
