    Don’t be trashy. 

    We live in a throw-away society. Just last week I was dumped for a younger, blonder, skinnier version of myself. Over-consumption and excessive production of short-lived and disposable items has resulted in an instant gratification society. (Note: I ain't the kind of girl who provides instant gratification. Could have contributed to the break up…) This would be alright if we had an everlasting supply to clean energy to make replacement goods and bottomless landfill sites. But we have neither. 
    Disposable relationships aside, people seem to have forgotten how to re-use, repair, recycle and reduce. Instead, the trend to replace has taken over. At Expand a Sign, we see the benefit of superior quality products. They simply last longer. Our Banner stand, Ex-Dome gazebo, Ex-Shade parasol and Ex-Up frames are designed so the frame can be re-used with new printed “skins”. Our Ex-Dome gazebo is even supplied with a 'spare parts kit' in the event that Mother Nature or a lack of common sense requires the frame to be mended on location. Our polyester fabric is also 100% biodegradable. Our slogan of 'say no to styro' means that all packaging is made of cardboard and can be re used.

    We are also committed to community development and our strict recycling programme works hand in hand with this. All waste fabric from the business is donated to a small sewing enterprise made up of previously unemployed women who make unique school bags, shopping bags and sports bags. Each person involved benefits directly and in this way, we are helping to uplift the local community. We’ve bought thousands of these school bags and donated them to under-privileged school children around South Africa as part of an AIDS education programme. Our international agents and affiliated companies as well as other corporate companies are also buying shopping bags and sports bags as customer incentives and give-aways. 

    We're doing our bit to wipe out waste. After all, people who recycle can do it over and over and over.
