Myth: Green meetings are a hassle
Reality: For planners, green meetings involve looking at the decisions you already make in a green light. When inquiring about catering ask for local, organic and vegetarian options.

When arranging for printing of collateral materials ask printers to use post-consumer recycled content paper, print on both sides and use vegetable-based inks.

Suppliers may need to initially invest some time to set up recycling, energy efficiency or other environmental programs, however, the return on investment in these initiatives ultimately outweighs the initial equipment and human resource cost.
