Events use a lot or resources.
Everything —from the paper or plastic plates to the air travel for speakers —uses resources that can be managed in a thoughtfully responsible way. Proxy Events is proud to offer a variety of options to help make your event more sensitive to the use and sustainability of products and services.
When you inquire about Greening your Event, we will deliver a complimentary gift pack with a stainless steel spoon/straw and coupon during our consultation meeting. This little thing will make a big difference in helping you reduce your use of one-time plastic straws. Just think of how many plastic straws you use! You can keep that plastic out of landfills and oceans by using our reusable, practically indestructible, washable spoon/straw! AND please don’t forget to tell your favorite restaurants that you support their replacing single-use plastic items! If enough consumers demand change, change will come!
Here are some ways we can Green Your Event!
- Travel Elimination: virtual attendance options.
- Vegetarian/organic catering.
- Recycled paper, cardboard, and beverage containers; compostable/recycleable service items.
- Eliminate handouts or handouts are printed double-sided on at least 30% post-consumer recycled content paper.
- Composting (bins must be widely accessible and clearly marked) and all of the materials generated at the event are reused, recycled, or composted.
- Sustainable Food: fair trade, local or organic food and beverages options.
- No bottled water (either small personal ones or larger 3-5 gallon coolers).
- Waste collection points to ensure proper sorting of recycling and compostables.
- Consumable or green-themed giveaways.
- Sustainable/reusable/compostable centerpieces.
- Reduced impact of promotional flyers – either by eliminating entirely, having 50% of flyers printed on one-side-clean paper, or 100% of flyers printed on 100% recycled content paper.
- Purchase carbon offsets for plane travel (via the entry fee or another easy method).
