Here’s a challenge for you…name one sustainable thing your company, hotel, association or meeting venue is doing this year that you weren’t doing last year. Things like started recycling, installed CFL bulbs, added green language to RFPs, planted a roof-top garden, gave up bottled water, or donated leftover food. And just like the famous chip commercial, I bet you can’t stop at just one.
I am willing to bet there are green meeting practices in your organization that weren’t there at this time last year. Often, we get busy and don’t really stop to take notice or celebrate all of our steps along the way. MeetGreen struggles with this too.
I am also willing to let you use this blog to shout out those sustainable practices or policies and shamelessly brag about your organization to the 3,000 or so meeting professionals who follow this blog. So sit down (preferably under a nice, shady tree with a cool drink), reflect on the changes over the past year, and post a comment here.
If you want to be shy, you may email me at email@example.com and I will share them anonymously with the readers.
