"Greening" Good And Green® 2011
We are constantly striving to make our conference as green as possible. Check back weekly to see what new green efforts have been added.
Your conference tote bags by PlanetEarthPromotions.com are made from jute,
an abundant natural fiber that is completely bio-degradable and sustainable.
The eco-friendly Sasquatch® conference notebooks by Carolina Pad are made of
100% recycled paper. Carolina Pad developed the Sasquatch® Brand products to
give young people a way to express their love of the environment and to educate
them about how they can live green.
The pen in your bag is courtesy of Pentel. It’s part of the Pentel Recycology line
and made of 59% recycled content. Pentel’s environmental programs began in
1974 when one of the Pentel factories in Japan was recognized and honored for
its waste water treatment facilities and its participation in environmentally-friendly
programs. All Recycology products are designed to reduce manufacturing impact
on the environment.
We re-use our name badge holders from conference to conference (in fact, we
have a 90% return rate at each event!) and the paper insert is printed on at least
30% PCW paper.
We rely mostly on email blasts and personal phone calls for conference
promotion, and all mailings were printed at a FSC-certified plant using PCW paper
and vegetable-based inks.
At the Opening Night Reception on Wednesday, Good And Green® is proud to
serve wines from Parducci, a family farmed, locally owned and operated winery in
California’s Mendocino County. Parducci is committed to sustainable winegrowing
practices that yield top quality grapes and wines while protecting the environment
and supporting their communities and local farmers. Parducci uses solar power and
earth-friendly packaging and is the first carbon neutral winery in the US.
Hearst Tower is the most environmentally friendly office tower in New York City
history. It is the first occupied “green” commercial building in New York City to
receive a Gold Rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
(LEED) rating system by the US Green Building Council.
