.. Eco Tips!
We’ve got some tips to help you make your event greener and more sustainable all round. We do hundreds of events every year and we’ve picked up some top tips along the way that we’d love to share with you! Simple steps make a HUGE difference.
1 – DITCH THE PAPER
The world is digital nowadays and there’s really no need to waste so much paper! You can use emails, apps and other digital tools. If you really need to use paper – opt to use recycled!
2 – OFFER RECYCLING
One of the easiest things you can do is simply provide opportunities to recycle at your event! Not only this but you can go a little further and do things such as ban single use plastic bottles, only allow compostable dining materials and make sure you have plenty of refillable water points around your event.
3 – COMPOSTING TIOLETS
Compostable toilets are fantastic! They save on water and they don’t use any chemicals – what more could you ask for from a toilet?
4 – ENCOURAGE PUBLIC TRANSPORT
As we all know cars are a major contributor the environmental damage. City Councils are very keen to hear from events and partner up in offering transport discount for attendees. Alternatively you can offer incentive for car sharing.
5 – USE SOLAR ENERGY
Solar energy is a the way of the future! It’s totally sustainable and the sun will always keep shining! When choosing a venue for your event take into consideration solar venues or look into other alternative energy sources. We understand this can be limiting but always always something to consider when possible.
6 – USE LED LIGHTING
Always opt for LED bulbs! They require less power, create less heat and they last much longer! This will immediately decrease your creation of greenhouse gases. Not only this but they don’t contain any toxic elements so when they’re disposed, they’re not adding any further toxic waste.
7 – INSPIRE SUSTAINBLE PRACTICES
Choose activities at your event that doesn’t require energy! From creative workshops and physical workshops to recycling projects, trash art and more! Creating sculptures from recycling trash is a good example of combining these elements.
