Plan Zero Waste Events

I pledge to plan zero waste events that rely on washing and reusing everything, composting food waste, and avoiding anything that’s single use or made from plastic.

Need a Few Tips?

1) Use fabric tablecloths and napkins that can be easily washed and reused.

2) Use glasses instead of plastic cups.

3) Serve pitchers or large thermoses of water instead of providing single-serve bottled water.

4) Make your own seltzer or soda with a Soda Stream.

5) Use metal utensils.

6) Use washable dishes instead of paper or plastic plates. If you plan to compost food waste, use compostable plates, napkins, etc.

7) Email invitations instead of sending paper.

8) Save and store any uneaten food for later or donate it.

9) Compost all food waste after donating edible leftovers. Contact Curbside Compost  and Action Container Service if you need to hire a service to professionally compost your food waste.

10) Cut fresh flowers from your yard or buy them at a farmers market, then compost them when they’re past their prime.

11) For large public events, hire a professional like Curbside Compost to provide bins and staffing to ensure food waste is separated at the source along with recycling.
