    Sustainable events have been around for a while, but companies have evaded the idea of planning and creating an environment-friendly event, until a few years back. One of the biggest reasons behind this is the expense such events may incur. Moreover, creating sustainable events require deliberation and scrupulous planning. This is another factor that keeps organizations from embracing the green event ideology.

    Of late, the events’ industry has seen a massive shift in planning and strategizing events. Most event professionals these days are personally interested in implementing sustainable plans and reducing the carbon footprint of the events they organize.

    Popular corporate event organizers in Bangalore share simple tips they follow to make events more sustainable.  Here’s how they do it-

    1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
      In order to begin planning a sustainable event, you need to take a look at similar events that were organized in the past. A thorough research will help you draft an outline on how to go about planning all the factors that are essential for your event and avoid what isn’t required.
    2. SUSTAINABLE VENUES ARE IN!
      Deciding the venue of the event also plays an important role in your list of green practices.  Many venues today, take pride in being environmentally sustainable. Look them up and see what suits you best. Take a look at convention centers, stadiums, etc. that have sustainability policies. Moreover, the distance from the airport or other forms of public transport is also of prime importance when it comes to reducing your carbon footprint. Lesser the distance, lower the fuel consumption. Thus, keeping the goal of creating a sustainable event in situ.
    3. LET’S GO PAPERLESS
      Put technology to good use and cut down on the amount of paper used at your events. Make check-ins and registrations with the help of tabs or kiosks. This can save paper and is a lot easier for the guests too. No long queues and chaos at the registration desk, that’s an added benefit of going digital! Wearable technology is also a great way to reduce the waste of paper at your events. RFID’s are an example of wearing technology that is changing the way purchase coupons and entry passes are used at events. Exploring technology for events the options are limitless!
    4. SAY NO TO PLASTIC
      Handing out plastic individual water bottles to your guests only adds on to the garbage pile at the end of the event. Place glasses over the water pitcher or filters so that they are reused. Hand out giveaways in cloth bags with your company logo or motto on it to take sustainability up a notch and drive the message home!
    5. DONATE THE LEFTOVERS
      Events often see the largest food waste scenarios. Contact charities and other organizations that accept leftover food which is, in turn, donated to the needy.
    6. SEPARATE TRASH AND RECYCLABLES
      Place garbage cans at convenient points throughout the venue. Have garbage cans of various colors to help guests identify what trash goes where!
