As event planners, we have the ability and resources to create environmentally friendly green events. Whether you’re looking to decrease your carbon footprint or create less waste, there are TONS of opportunities to make your event planet friendly. Although it may seem overwhelming and expensive at first, there are many affordable options to implement a green event so you can start making a difference.
Caring about the environment does not always have to mean attending protests or vehemently calling representatives. At the end of the day, sustainability is a mindset in which you prioritize being kind to the planet – the decisions you make from there have a habit of following suit.” (Alex Tone, University Times)
