How to go green at the Housing Fair
Even though this year's theme is not oriented around sustainability,
we encourage all of our vendors to eliminate waste at the event. Here
are some tips on how you can HELP US go green! Many of the suggestions
are SIMPLE things we can do to be kinder to our planet. If you have
other suggestions, please contact our office at (970) 491-2248 and we
will be sure to add them to the list!
- Recycle bins for PAPER, PLASTIC, and CARDBOARD will be
placed throughout the ballroom. Please use them as you set up
and tear down your displays as well as throughout the day. Also
the hospitality room will be stocked with eco-friendly
silverware, plates, cups, etc. We will have additional
composting bins for food and paper items too.
- When making brochures or fliers, consider using recycled
stock or choose pastel colored paper which is recyclable. Avoid
neon and astrobright colored paper because it is not
recyclable, and remember to take ALL of your brochures and
fliers back with you.
- When creating your displays, bring items that can be reused
or repurposed, such as making a board that you can also use in
your office. Or if you construct something out of cardboard,
recycle it after the event! If you are adding a splash of color
to your display, consider using eco-friendly paint!
- CARPOOL to the event! Make a dent in your carbon footprint
for the day!
- Calculate, reduce, and offset your carbon footprint.
