Top 12 Green Practices to Ask For

The MeetGreen Conference Management Team recently voted on their favorite green practices to ask for when planning a conference or event. I am sure they won't mind if I share, so here are their top 12 "asks:"

  • Ask for recycling at the facility
  • Ask for a towel and linen reuse program
  • Ask for no bottled water to be served
  • Ask for bulk condiments and beverages
  • Ask for excess food to be donated
  • Ask for banquet water glasses not to be pre-filled
  • Ask for use of china and linens; no disposables
  • Ask if the venue has electronic signage
  • Ask about sustainable, local food
  • Ask for signs to be made of a sustainable material
  • Ask for recycled content paper for printing or ask for no printing at all
  • Ask client to communicate sustainability efforts and options to attendees.
