Green Mary - Zero Waste Events
What and why - "EVENT WASTE DIVERSION AND ECO EDUCATION"
Greening is spreading around the country and is blooming all over in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Whether initiated by producers' great green hearts, spurred by specific awareness of limited resources, heeding public and event peer pressure or yielding to municipal and state mandate, matter to the landfill is shrinking as recycling and compost matter is maximized.
It is easy to produce near-zero waste events with a bit of focused attention behind the scenes. We manage it at over 150 event dates per year, from music festivals and road races to conferences and fund raisers. We can do it for you or train you to do it yourself!
Waste diversion and resource maximization is all that our ten-year old event support company focuses on and it's our pleasure to pass the passion along. We have over 50 employees who are endlessly enthusiastic about both waste diversion and training folks how to do it themselves, at events, home and the office.
In order to help produce zero waste at public events, we:
Coordinate with event insiders, haulers and venue operators to establish effective waste diversion systems, arranging for and providing all trash- related materials.
Determine what is necessary in the way of equipment and containers for any size event.
Provide food vendor letters for any location, detailing the greenest wares according to what the haulers really accept, what is truly recyclable and compostable - it varies quite a bit around the Bay Area.
Manage everything from event set up and providing event-specific signage to sorting every bag and doing final grounds clean up!
Take all trashy matters off event shoulders and reach diversion rates of up to 95% as we make soil and recycle tons of material every year.
Great for the planet and completely LOCAL!
