CASE STUDY: Life Time

Recycled Acrylic Reduces CO2 Emissions

Challenge

  • Life Time – a nationwide company dedicated to healthy living – wanted to add brandable screens within its athletic centers to add an element of privacy
  • Acrylic was the preferred material, but Life Time was interested in a more eco-friendly solution

Solution

  • Recrylic certified recycled acrylic panels were used for the installations, in place of non-recycled acrylic
  • Branding applied to panels via translucent printed vinyls
  • Panels are eligible to include the RCC logo, denoting Life Time's commitment to sustainable sourcing

Results

  • Each location receives 4-5 panels
  • CO2 savings per location = about 3-4 barrels of oil, or 1.5 - 2 tons of CO2
  • Assuming a rollout of 150 locations, that's about 212 tons of CO2 saved – or the equivalent of taking 46 cars off the road, for a full year
