|MAKE YOUR MEETING A GREENER PLACE
|Reduced consumption of our planet's natural resources is an effort that has long been championed by
concerned naturalists, conservation organizations, and individuals the world over. Social responsibility in
support of this campaign has become common place.
As producers and hosts of meetings and events, we can play a significant role in the effort to green our
planet. There are a multitude of resources available to assist event producers and clients with information
to support their efforts.
A typical 5 day conference for 2,500 attendees will use 90,000 cans or bottles, 75,000 cups and 87,500
napkins (Meeting Strategies Worldwide, 2003). To learn about the rate and effects of consumption on our
planet and to get useful information and tools to guide you in how to host sustainable meetings and
events, visit the website of an organization on our green resources list.
