Earth Day: Our Eco Efforts

Serengeti on Cork Wallcovering
We want to take a moment to appreciate our beautiful planet and share the steps we're taking to help preserve it.
We take pride in our efforts to provide eco-friendly printing processes and materials because we want you to feel good about the products you bring into your projects. From our VOC-free (no heavy metals or other poisonous or corrosive substances) ink to our renewable materials, we're committed to continuing to find ways to produce our products with the Earth in mind. 
This year for Earth Day, we're making a contribution to Heal the Bay and launched an internal Sustainability Committee so we can consider the planet all year long. Some of our goals include making Astek HQ operations more sustainable, sourcing new eco materials, upcycling our material waste, and engaging in cleanup events in our community. If you have any questions or any innovative eco-suggestions, feel free to reach out to us at

Learn more about our environmentally conscious substrates below and feel good about getting a gorgeous wallcovering plus your LEED points.

Eco Canvas

Eco Canvas is PVC-free (i.e. doesn't contain dangerous chemical additives) making a safer end product for us, the installer, the client, and the environment. 


Topeka is a Type II substrate that's both PVC-free and made with 31% post consumer recycled content. You can get all the same eco benefits from Smooth Topeka as well.


Laguna is another Type II substrate that's both PVC-free and made with 31% post consumer recycled content.

Paper is a PVC-free option that's also made with 10% post-consumer recycled fiber.
Natural Substrates
Made from natural cork, plant fibers, and metals, our Printed Naturals wallcovering collection is an excellent eco-wallcovering solution. Our cork substrate in particular is considered to be a renewable and sustainable solution as the trees it's harvested from aren't cut down. Instead, the bark is stripped from the cork tree, the tree regrows this layer, and can be re-harvested. 

We can custom print on any of the materials featured in our Printed Naturals collection which include Grey Grasscloth, Cream Agave, Chocolate Cork, White Cork, Burlap, Weave, and Metal Leaf in Gold, Copper, and Silver
