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.
Site Selection & Emergency Preparedness
We discussed the topic of “Site Selection & Emergency Preparedness” this week at our monthly tweet chat #MeetGreenChat. We had insightful, informative discussions on twitter and would like to share them to help you to make informed decisions while planning your next event.
