Make sure that all recycling and landfill bins are clearly labeled and that there is at least one recycling bin for each landfill bin.
Be sure to post on RIT FoodShare if there is left over food at the end of the event!
Try to avoid printing handouts and instead make all information available online. If handouts can’t be avoided, make sure they are double-sided and use paper that contains at least 30% post-consumer recycled content.
Collect and reuse name tag holders (if used) after the event.
Encourage participants to bring their own reusable bags, coffee mugs, or water bottles to reduce disposable items.
Avoid promotional materials, favors, condiments, snacks, and cutlery that are individually wrapped in plastic.
Choose event décor that is reusable, non-perishable and/or regional (avoid balloons).
If using floral arrangements, request plants rather than cut flowers, preferably locally grown.
