What We Are Doing to Make a Difference

Thursday, July 30th, 2009
Xtreme Xhibits not only supports green options in theory, we are putting action behind our words: a rarity in an industry characterized as having little to no plan for reuse of materials. Our company’s goal is to practice recycling and adopt environmentally thoughtful measures within the office wherever possible in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint. Xtreme Xhibits has implemented an office recycling initiative, collecting paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminum and glass, substantially reducing our waste flow to Austin landfills.

To further illustrate our incorporation of inventive business procedures, we can turn to our service department. They regularly receive large shipments of exhibiting supplies for clients in cardboard boxes of varying size. While damaged boxes are flattened and recycled, the rest are reused for our own shipping needs. This procedure not only contributes to less waste contribution, but also saves Xtreme Xhibits valuable greenbacks. Moreover, with the addition of a container-less water cooler our plastic waste has been radically reduced as well.

These initiatives see Xtreme Xhibits leading by example to achieve an environmentally sustainable business model geared toward the betterment of not only Austin, but the world.

A Diamond in the Rough

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

X2 has become only one of 19 companies in Austin to be recognized as WasteSmart! Xtreme Xhibits has been working closely with the City of Austin Solid Waste Services Department for the last month to become a WasteSMART business, recognized for our efforts to create less waste, recycle and buy recycled products. Only a handful of Austin businesses have taken the initiative to work together with the city in an effort to reduce the waste stream generated by their daily business. It is our sincerest effort to become a pioneer amongst fellow Austin businesses in the push for greater sustainability and environmental consciousness.

Furthermore, forging this path has led us to become the first Austin member of The Green Meetings Industry Council. The GMIC encourages collaboration within the events and meeting industry towards the expansion of green standards in efforts to lessen the environmental impact the industry has on a global basis. In efforts to expand this cause around the greater Austin area, Xtreme Xhibits is currently trying to organize an Austin based chapter of the GMIC.

With expectations that our innovative change and direction will lead to a revolution within the tradeshow and events industry, Xtreme Xhibits by Skyline, Inc. can show Austin businesses how to make their mark without leaving one!

Leading a Movement for Meaningful Change in the Austin Business Community

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Xtreme Xhibits has recognized that the event, meeting and tradeshow industry is one of the larger producers of solid waste in the United States. Committed to transforming the events and tradeshow industry to one that is economically and environmentally sustainable, Xtreme Xhibits has launched a new range of “green” tradeshow and exhibiting products. These new additions demonstrate Xtreme Xhibits’ commitment to the idea that in order to effect meaningful change within the industry it is essential to continually re-envision our approach to doing business.

There is an old saying that “nothing endures but change.” Food menus change seasonally. Fashions and fads can change even quicker. Even societies and deep rooted cultural practices change over time. Whether selling ship supplies in the 16th century, or custom designed exhibits in the 21st, business innovation is paramount due to society’s continual march towards progress and advancement. The large force of change currently transforming the business worldwide is environmental consciousness, which has led Xtreme Xhibits to pursue greater sustainability.

However, we realize that achieving sustainability is a collaborative process, especially considering the worldwide push for such change. We are working with our suppliers to develop and supply sustainable materials for our customers. This renders us capable of identifying specific sustainable options that will work well for our clients’ business goals. At the same time, we are striving to ensure our own manufacturing, distribution, and administration processes are efficient and responsible.
