Why Sustainability Matters for Event Venues

Environmental awareness is a vital aspect of the guest experience that is often overlooked. Consider the following attitudes Americans have about issues related to sustainability:

  • 39% of Americans feel guilty about wasting food
  • 27% of Americans feel guilty about wasting water
  • 21% of Americans feel guilty about not recycling

This means that scores of guests may have a negative takeaway from an event if sustainable solutions are not in place. However, 47% of Americans believe their individual actions can help protect the environment. Enable your guests to have a carefree experience by addressing their environmental concerns up-front. Making it easy for your attendees to do the right thing is one more positive experience they’ll take away from the event.
