What is your favorite tip
for greening a meeting?
“In keeping with the topic of our Sustainable Packaging Forum, I
urge planners to provide recycling containers in meeting rooms.
Sometimes a hotel will pick up the cost. Sell a sponsorship for the
service and display signage near the containers. You can also buy
containers with the sponsor’s logo on them.”

“I like to share with our attendees how
our changes have reduced the conference’s carbon footprint. It
makes people feel good about what has been done, and it is a
proactive measure to alleviate any complaints due to a new process,
like not serving bottled water.”

“When feeding large groups, if
items are a must, try to use biodegradable products. They don’t
cost any more and can be sourced with logos and messages. I also
love generic signage that can be used year after year or be donated
to local schools; they love that stuff!”
