Going Green

Recycle SymbolWe are working to make our meeting more 'green' and help reduce the environmental footprint of this event.  We want to contribute positively to minimizing our environmental impact. 

As a guest at the Westin you will also notice the efforts the hotel is making.  As seasoned travelers, many of you are accustomed to the linens and towels not being replaced daily.  You will also find recycling blue boxes in your room.  The Westin is also a smoke-free environment.

Air quality, energy efficiency, water conservation, waste management, and environmental purchasing are the areas that we are attempting to impact with our choices.  Remember the 3 R's – Reduce, Re-use and Recycle

Green Activities

  • Less Paper
    You have minimal handouts, and we hope you will re-use the clear plastic folder your papers are presented in.
  • Recycled Badges
    We are re-using badges and lanyards. The badge stock paper is 100% post-consumer content.  The inserts are recycled and recyclable. Please leave yours at the registration table when you leave.
  • No Bottled Water
    Filtered water will be provided instead of bottled water.
  • Seasonal Menu
    Menu selections for the lunches will include as many local and seasonal foods as possible.
  • Limited Disposable Coffee Cups
    If you're a coffee drinker have an all day cup. If you're using disposables, please look for the recycling bin. The Westin serves Starbucks organic coffee.
