In a world where environmental consciousness is imperative for organisations and businesses around the world, the Galway International Arts Festival was no different, taking its commitment to sustainability seriously. This year’s Galway International Arts Festival witnessed a remarkable stride towards environmental friendliness, thanks to iSupply’s eco-friendly printing and signage options. Gone were the days of traditional PVC banners; instead, iSupply introduced PVC-free alternatives that significantly reduced environmental impact. All of the signage you may have seen around Galway had the highest eco friendly ratings available to that product.

Recycling for a Greener Future

Our sustainability endeavours didn’t end with our choice of materials. We have drastically increased the amount of sustainable products we use, and for the Arts festival, we ensured that every material used was responsibly disposed of or repurposed after the festival. By actively participating in the circular economy, we hope to set an example for others in the industry and beyond, proving that artistic brilliance and environmental consciousness can go hand in hand.
