One of IPAA’s major themes this year is sustainability, and we want to walk the talk for our conference tomorrow. Below are a few ways that you can help us green our conference (and we will take suggestions for future years!):
1. We will provide cups and coffee containers - but bring your water bottle and to-go cups too! Disposable items that are not used tomorrow save can be used for future events, which decreases items bought in the future. Maybe we can help create a new “bring your own” norm too!
2. If you use our plastic cups, please recycle them in the recycling area (just take three steps!)
3. Although we will have one shuttle van between SPEA and the DeVault Alumni Center for lunch, the van will make fewer trips and use less gas if you guys bike, walk, or take the A-Bus (see the bus schedule and map).
4. Don’t want your conference prospectus in 6 months (what? I’m keeping mine forever). Make sure you recycle that too.
Thanks, Guys! We can’t wait to see you tomorrow.
