Zero Waste Events are a critical element of the overall approach toward zero waste. In particular, they target the Reduce component of the three R’s – to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. In the hierarchy of solid waste, reducing the amount of generated waste is the primary and most highly recommended measure. Events tend to generate a considerable amount of waste in a very short time period. They are also a great way to show your commitment to the environment while creating a model of zero waste for your guests, and an opportunity to expose people to the possibility of a world without (or at least a lot less) waste in a tangible and compelling way.
We have developed a Zero Waste Green Event Resource Guide to assist in incorporating Zero Waste practices at your next event. By using this guide, you will:
