Zero Waste Tips for Exhibitors

Working with the UIC Office of Sustainability and Bright Beat, FamilyFarmed is asking exhibitors to work to reduce / limit the amount of waste produced from this event. Please consider using reusable crates to carry your items (vs. cardboard boxes): use compostable products, separate your waste into the appropriate marked bins onsite, and donate unserved food, beverages and other excess items through our coordinated donation program.

Who are our partners?  The UIC Office of Sustainability forms the focal point for coordinating sustainability initiatives on campus by receiving information, tracking data, and assessing progress. This is accomplished through involvement in institutional and programmatic planning, information dissemination, providing guidance, reporting, and acting as a resource on sustainability in higher education.  Bright Beat is a Chicago-based, woman-owned consultancy that provides leadership in the development and management of environmental sustainability initiatives with enhanced program engagement.
