Sustainable Attendee Tips

Know Before You Go

Before you leave for SB’17 Detroit…

  • Don’t forget to pack your refillable water bottle and reusable coffee cup! SB will offer many opportunities to refill both.
  • Pack light… even bringing 1 less pair of shoes saves CO2!
  • Carpool or take public transport to/from the airport and to/from your hotel. Make new friends and contacts while saving CO2!
  • Make sure to download the SB mobile app instead of taking a program.

While onsite…

  • Turn off lights when leaving your hotel room.
  • Participate in your hotels Linen ReUse Program.
    • Did you know that you can earn points for participating? Ask your hotel about their specific awards incentives!
  • Ask for a recycling bag for your hotel room if one isn’t in place.
  • Walk to and from the convention center or take the Detroit People Mover.
  • Make sure to use the proper Recycling and Compost bins at the convention center. Look before you throw!
  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup throughout the conference.
  • Take only what you need at food functions.
  • Choose to eat vegetarian or vegan at least one meal per day OR make the commitment eat meat free ALL WEEK!
  • Donate leftover conference materials and items at show close.
  • Return your lanyard at show close to be re-used for the future.
