Benefits of Green Events


The benefits of hosting a Green Event are numerous, both for your event directly and for the community.

Your benefits:
  1. Green Events helps you to reduce your trash bill by diverting recyclable materials from trash dumpsters.
  2. Green Events offers positive publicity for your event and your company by letting the public know that you care about the environment.
  3. Waste prevention also helps you and your vendors and other participants to lower purchasing and management costs through wise purchasing decisions.

  2. Increasing recycling increases job opportunities in the recycling industry.
  3. Increased public awareness and understanding of recycling helps recycling in Anchorage.
  4. A visible recycling program shows visitors that Anchorage is a forward-thinking community, encouraging future visitors and events.
