Trade shows are massive events that draw a sizeable crowd and quite rightly create a lot of litter. From plastic water bottles to flyers and everything in between, tradeshows generate tons of trash. You can make some earnest efforts to make it as ecofriendly as possible.
Paper flyers and brochures can be replaced with digital promotional materials like custom flashdrives that can be imprinted with your brand and message. It reduces trash and will serve as a long lasting promotional item for your brand.
Food and drinks are the crowd pullers in any tradeshow; however not all of what is served is consumed. So donate the surplus food to make sure that it doesn’t go waste. Choose tradeshow giveaways like reusable water bottles and cotton tote bags that will make great ideas to inspire the attendees to go green in their lives.
Collect paper and plastic items in separate bins so that it can be recycled without ending up in landfills.

Encourage digital communication within and outside the office to reduce the consumption of paper. Avoid unnecessary printing and when you print, try to make the most of the space on the page and use both sides of the paper. Used papers should be promptly recycled.
Turn off lights when not in use. Make use of solar energy wherever possible and save energy by unplugging electronics that are not in use. Solar chargers and solar powerbanks help save energy.
