- Plant-based food and material wastage
Food and materials are a very common part of events. Making choices that have a lower impact on the environment is a way of lowering costs, and lowering your emissions.
Prioritise vegan and vegetarian food above meat and fish. Red meat is a large contribution to global emissions. If you are offering a meat/fish buffet, how about replacing a finished dish with a vegetarian one instead of restocking the meat/fish? Have you considered offering local and in season foods?
If you need to have badges, why not print them once your guest has arrived? This reduces the number of unnecessary printing for no-shows. Consider printing them on seed paper or do this digitally. Are posters and banners that you cannot use multiple times really necessary? A simple trick is to not put a date or location on the materials; this way you can always continue to use it, regardless of a change.
