TEDxTinHauWomen is fully committed to sustainability and keeping our impact on the environment to a minimum.
This year, we took extra care to implement as many green steps as we could take to promote the importance of sustainable living and waste reduction during TEDxTinHauWomen.
Attendees received a reusable tote bag packed to the brim with great sustainable goodies. Rather than vouchers and leaflets, all the great promotions were sent via email so there was less paper used and attendees wouldn’t miss out on any deals! No other flyers were provided aside from our brochure (which we hope would be kept) and all the information around on-the-day experience, speakers, schedules, zones and interactions, was listed on our Convene app (look for the QR codes!)
Attendees indulged in refreshments throughout the day using reusable water bottles and coffee cups made available for everyone. Our mission was for our F&B partners not use a single piece of plastic throughout the day, and if any waste is produced, we recycled EVERYTHING!
For attendees who preferred to not take their goodie bag home, we offered a re-gifting system donating these to a local charity so that nothing went to waste. We even re-used gift bags, bracelets, lanyards and other many bits and pieces from last year, preventing any additional wastage as we continued to grow within the community.
We encourage each and every one of you to really think about the way you consume and the small changes we can all make every day in order to have a big impact, at home, at work or anywhere you go.
Thank you on behalf of the TEDxTinHauWomen Committee for your help in making our event as sustainable as possible!
