They say it isn’t easy being green, but nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to planning a “green” or environmentally friendly party at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC. Going green isn’t just a trend, it’s becoming an important part of life, both for social events and for our day to day routine. But while it’s easy to integrate green habits into our daily lives, you may not realize that it’s not difficult to make your celebration green, too!
Here are just a few ways you can make your next corporate, social event, or wedding celebration at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC a little greener.
Does your event require a program or menu? Why not go digital and create your own QR code for guests to scan? This reduces paper waste, and will impress your guests with your digital savvy. If you must use paper products, look for those made with recycled paper or recyclable paper. Some paper can even be planted and will grow wildflowers!
You put a lot of effort into choosing the perfect cuisine for your special event. Rather than throw it away, ask that your leftover food be donated to a nearby charity. This is greener because there’s less food waste, and you get to feel good about helping out others in need of a delicious meal.
Another way to donate is in lieu of party favors, give a donation in the name of each guest to a charity of your choice. This will cut down on waste, and do something good at the same time.
Rather than cutting fresh cut flowers for your centerpieces, consider decorating your tabletops with live plants that can then be planted into the ground once your special event is over. Guests can take them home as a doorprize, or you can bring them home yourself for your own sentimental garden.
While it may be a nice detail to put your corporate logo, wedding date, or name on your paper wear, using reusable linens is the greener way to go. If you must get the monogrammed napkins or other paper products, look for recycled and recyclable materials first.
Balloons are a fun and cheerful way to decorate your event, but they’re notoriously bad for the environment. Instead of using balloons, decorate with plants, flowers, and colored lights from our in house audio visual team, AV Workshop to add dimension and color to our raw space.
Planning a green event is easier than you might think, and can be very rewarding for you and your guests. To start planning your next special event, contact Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC today!
