When it comes to environment and sustainability, motocross is rarely the prime example. Experts agree that dirt bikes cause a significant soil erosion and might even damage fragile ecosystems. Not to mention, there are so many factors that play their role here. For example, even the newest dirt bikes lack the emissions systems that you can find in cars. And of course, they can seem a bit irritating to ordinary people and wildlife due to the excessive nose. In spite of that, we are not here to play the bad cops. We mean, come on! MX runs through our veins and as much as we love our planet Earth. We just could not give up on our favourite thing ever. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t do our best to lessen the impact of this sport. When getting MX decals by OMX Graphics, you can be sure that you will sport graphics that have a reduced impact on our planet.
Motocross has a wide appeal and it is getting more and more popular. Trust us on this one, we can tell that just by the growing demand of graphics that’s been crazy lately. And with the huge growth, the community must evaluate all the ways how to lessen the environmental damage caused by this sport. The more we get outdoors to shred the dirt, the more we think of the ways how to make this industry a bit better. And for OMX, that means producing dirt bike graphics that are more green and sustainable.
Green Dirt Bike Graphics for a better place to live
Since 2018, OMX satisfies customer requests for a greener print solution with low VOCs, lower power consumption, and less waste and consumables. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a large group of chemicals that are found in many products, standard printed graphics included. Once these chemicals are in our homes, they are released or “off-gas” into the indoor air we breathe. Therefore, we have made the decision to produce our stuff with the Bugatti of print industry – two Vutek H5 UV-Led printers. That means not only working with a state-of-art machines that do cost a small fortune but also reducing the damage of our print works. These bad boys allow to print dirt bike graphics with UV-Led inks, also known as green inks. They require a way smaller energy consumption that is reduced by 82%. And knowing how eff-ed up is the ecosystem of our planet, you mighty agree that less waste means less problems, right?
We don’t want to call ourselves the superstars of sustainable manufacturing (not yet, at least). What promise that OMX is consciously trying to produce your dirt bike graphics with the best resources out there. We have a long way to go towards a greener motorsport but we are taking the first big steps and there’s more to come. If that helps you to shred the dirt with a slightly greater peace of mind, we call that a victory.
