In the spirit of maintaining sustainable business practices, we offer Green Meeting options at many of our hotels.
All Green Meetings include:
- Meeting rooms with recycling/composting bins
- China, glassware, ceramic creamers and sugar dispensers
- Condiments served family style (no individually packaged food items)
- Electronic - rather than printed - handouts
- Double-sided handouts printed on recycled paper with soy-based inks (when necessary)
- Linen tablecloths and napkins
- Water in pitchers and bulk water dispensers rather than bottles
- CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) light bulbs
- Local, organic, humane and sustainably produced foods—no genetically modified food
- Donations of leftover food to local food banks and shelters when possible
- The use of a white board (when possible) rather than a flip chart package
- Useful and sustainable giveaways
- Live plants as centerpieces
- On-line registration (when possible)
