“Live simply so that others may simply live.”

At public events, we will:

  • serve only vegetarian foods (vegan and organic as much as possible).
  • purchase our food and other products from local sources whenever possible.
  • serve water from pitchers and not use individual disposable plastic water bottles.
  • exhaust our current supplies, then replace with eco-friendly plates, napkins, cups, utensils.
  • not use styrofoam.
  • begin a process toward the goal of ‘zero-waste’ at larger events.

At our office, we will:

  • use filtered water on site, i.e. no water cooler that requires water delivery.
  • use compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  • use recycled paper whenever possible.

For public marketing and other communications, we will:

  • not use postal mail, using digital means as much as possible.
  • begin implementing QR codes when feasible to reduce need for paper.

Additionally, we will:

  • carpool when we can and encourage others to do the same.
  • begin integrating raising awareness of global warming into our events and public messages.
  • keep looking for additional things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint and encourage others to do the same.
