Green events are popping up everywhere and not just in gardens.  Meeting and event  planners are digging deeper to have sustainable events. Here are a few tips to make your event greener:

  1. Choose edible centerpieces.
  2. Serve local foods.
  3. Text invitations to guests.
  4. Reuse name badges.
  5. Coordinate with food banks to donate left-overs.
  6. Have your event during the day -  use natural lighting.
