Conferences engaging in green meeting practices have different levels of success depending on a variety of factors: city, meeting venue, hotels, caterer, participants, etc. Our long-time clients such as The Unitarian Universalist Association, give us an opportunity to work in a variety of destinations and try our hardest to make the attendee experience as environmentally responsible as possible. Some years we have greater success than others.

The morale of the story here is...do your best, don't be discouraged if you can't achieve 100% success, and openly share your experience so we may all learn from each other!
The UU Volunteers are our shining example. Thank you for the continued inspiration!
