Meetings and events take place every day all over the world, and even with sustainable practices in place, there are always creative ways we can work together to further reduce their carbon foot print on the environment. As a longtime supplier for this ever-growing industry, we search for or create new products that fall into one or all three “Rs” of waste hierarchy: reuse, reduce and recycle.
Our durable Eco Event Passes, for instance, are a welcome alternative at events. One of 10 mil paper, the other of 14 mil recycled plastic, both allow for crisp-full-color printing on both sides. Call us at 800.233.9767 and an Event Specialist can help you with your order. Post-event, these passes can be recycled through appropriate (PET) recycling channels.

How our products are Eco Friendly
Rather than throwing in the trash, many of our products can be recycled into something new and usable. If possible, include recycling and waste disposal bins at your events.
A biodegradable plastic such as PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride will fully biodegrade once in constant contact with naturally occurring microorganisms found in the soil of home and commerical composting or landfills.
Made from Recycled PET
PET or Polyethylene Terephthalate is the clear plastic used for water or soda bottles and other everyday items. It’s a petroleum-based product that’s 100% recyclable. The bottom of an item made of PET will have a symbol featuring “1” surrounded by chasing arrows that indicates recyclability.
Made from Recycled Materials
The product is manufactured with recycled materials either collected from a recycling program or from waste recovered during the normal manufacturing process, often including how much of the content is from recycled materials.
Made from Sustainable Materials
The Forest Stewardship Council promotes environmentally appropriate use of the world’s forests by certifying products such as paper made from a combination of FSC virgin wood and recycled fibers or derived from pre or post-consumer materials.
Many of our products can be reused including our event signage, name tag organizers, and promotional products. You can always share or donate event materials you won’t be using again.
