As the holiday season ends, we thought it would be fun AND helpful to do a countdown with the 12 Days of Sustainability. Starting on December 25th we posted to our Facebook and Twitter accounts a useful sustainable event tip you could use during the holidays and year round! In case you missed them, here is the full list:
Give a plant as a gift that will keep on giving all throughout the year!
Donate to a local #charity instead of giving gifts.
Use china instead of disposables for service ware.
Source food locally (within 250 miles)
Select sustainable seafood.
Serve beverages in pitchers instead of individual disposable containers.
Compost prep food & table scraps.
Use reusable, edible, or living table decorations.
Use cloth napkins instead of paper.
Serve fair trade, organic or shade grown certified coffee, tea and chocolate.
Have recycling bins available for guests.
Donate left overs & unserved food to a local charity.
Because green meetings happen every day, you can find more information about sustainable best practices with our Sustainability Event Kit.
