Straw Poll: The Good, Bad and the Ugly

Straw Poll: The Good, Bad and the Ugly

In 2017, we at MeetGreen made the commitment to give up single-use plastic straws both personally and professionally with as many events as possible within our influence. Having long been advocates of avoiding single-use plastics at our events, we joined the straw movement. We realize that straws are the tip of the iceberg with the plastics issue, but feel any reduction is a good change and will bring awareness to a larger community.

We discovered this small change was impactful to our lives in surprising ways and we are sharing the outcome of our straw poll to be transparent and to poke a little fun at ourselves.

At MeetGreen, we believe in the power of human connection. When people come together for a singular purpose, magical things happen. We help organize events for a variety of clients across a wide spectrum of industries and it’s always exciting to see the good work that comes from these meetings. We also believe in the importance of sustainability, from a business, environmental, and social perspective. Rather than an afterthought, sustainability is built into our event planning from the beginning.

We want to extend the power of human connection virtually with our own online community. With our like-minded friends, we will share resources and information designed to enhance your work as an event and/or sustainability professional.
