Tips to Hold a Sustainable Event in 2023


Sustainability needs to be on the top of your agenda when you next plan an event to protect the environment and reduce your company’s carbon footprint, appease your guests, and make people more likely to support your event. If you are finding it tricky to make your event as sustainable as possible, here are some top tips for 2023. 

  • Find Good Bartenders 

As much as you want your event to be sustainable, it also needs to be fun. If you do not do this, you may find that no one attends your event or that they leave early. This means that you should look around for event bartenders who are friendly and engaging and who can keep the drinks flowing throughout the day and night.

If you want to go one step further, you might even look for bartenders who are committed to using responsibly sourced and homegrown ingredients, who produce less ice, and who are dedicated to the use of more eco-friendly glassware and equipment. By doing this, you will be able to ensure that your sustainable event keeps the benefits and enjoyment level of traditional events while having less of an impact on the world’s ecosystem. 

  • Look at Sustainable Venues

To make sure that your event is sustainable without a lot of input from you, you should look around for venues that have highly detailed and committed sustainable policies and who are interested in looking after the environment. Even if they have these policies in place, you should make sure that you talk to them about these policies before you consider booking your event with them.

For instance, sustainable venues might use LED lighting and other energy-saving devices and might be committed to reducing waste. They might also try to source local ingredients for their dishes and donate to charities that help to protect the environment. By doing your research, you will be ensuring that you are not let down by the venue in question. 

  • Be Careful With Décor

It can be easy to get carried away when it comes to your décor, and you might find that you are investing in a lot of unnecessary plastic and paper. Instead, you should consider dialing down your décor or looking at more natural options, such as greenery and flowers. If you are going to invest in more extravagant décor, you should ensure that this is recyclable and has been produced in a green manner.

You should also be careful with invitations and even favors and free gifts, as these can end up being thrown away and can be a waste of resources. 

  • Go Online 

Although you might believe that a digital event will take away some of the immediacy and excitement of your event, online events can prevent you from using so much paper and other limited resources. By hosting the event online, you will not have to use a lot of electricity to power up event technology or to light and heat the venue, and you can send out promotional materials across the internet.

This can be a great way of hosting your event without worrying about climate change at the same time.
