Ever wonder what happens to those billboards after they come down? Well, if you think people get together and burn the ones with the skinny models on them, you’re wrong. They end up in landfills. Over 600,000 tons of vinyl billboards and banner materials are tossed into landfills every year, after they’re used. Relan decided to do something about this. They re-purpose the tossed out billboards into all sorts of supercool items. Now, companies are getting on board with Relan and giving them their used billboards so they don’t have to go rummaging through landfills for them. Just kidding about the rummaging through landfills part. I think. Companies like Verizon and the Minnesota Zoo are working on special projects with Relan to make items centered around their model.
There are name tags, cell phone bags, diaper bags and shopping bags, among other things, that make super neat presents. What’s that? You think you have everything? Do you have a billboard??
