Event Planning Buzzwords for 2019: Sustainability

Thinking about how to keep things environmentally friendly for your private or corporate event is not new. However, in 2019, this is one of the trends to watch, as guests are becoming more critical of waste. What are some of the things you can do to ensure your event gives off the proper socially conscious feel? Here are a few ways to host a sustainable event.

  • Use the right caterer – Finding a caterer who locally sources foods from farmers is a great way to promote your event as favoring sustainability. If the local farmers use sustainable growing practices, that’s even better.
  • Shop for an environmentally friendly venue – Do the bathrooms use hand dryers instead of paper towels? Perhaps the building itself is recycled in a way (some venues were once an old abandoned barn or other building, for example). Does the facility recycle? There should be a separate garbage bin for things like bottles, can, and other recyclables.
  • Donate the leftovers – While a good catering company should be able to get close on the food, they are always going to err on the side of having a little extra for your guests. Could you consider donating the leftovers to feed the hungry or homeless in your area?
