The Greentopia | INNOVATION Conference strives be a zero waste event. Our team is working with the Plaza Hotel to deploy chinaware throughout the conference, as well as ensuring organic up-cycling all food waste (pre and post-consumer). Additionally, there will be no printed copies of the conference schedule provided by our staff (digital copies will be sent out to all attendees three days prior to the conference). The schedule will be printed on large, recyclable signs. A smartphone app or web site will also be available. Name tags will be recycled and lanyards reused. Lastly, we have asked all of our exhibitors to be conscious of the waste they bring to the conference© 2012 Greentopia.
