Additional suggestions for a green laboratory with examples of solutions: (Note that the CAP-ACP does not formally endorse any companies.)

Suggestions to make meetings more sustainable and eco-friendly:

  • Encourage carbon offsetting flights.
  • Air Canada offers 10% discount if you register an event with them. Attendees could consider paying for carbon offset with their savings.
  • Ask attendees to bring lanyards from previous conferences.
  • Provide sustainable swag/gift, such as:
    • A water bottle and bamboo cutlery set that attendees keep, instead of providing plastic water bottles or plastic cutlery
    • A small seedling
    • Serve local food at events.
    • Reduce meat options.
    • Avoid bag lunches in disposable containers.
  • Avoid disposable food wrapping.
  • For refreshment services, provide:
    • Mugs instead of disposable cups
    • Glasses for water instead of plastic water bottles
    • Milk and cream in jugs instead of those little throwaways
    • Metal spoons for stirring
