Being Environmentally Responsible: How and Why You Should "Go Green" with Your Next Event

February 29, 2020


Almost everyone now-a-days is eco-aware and, to varying extents, eco-friendly.  It is now a marketing advantage, and just more responsible, to run a "Green" event where possible.


“Green” events, which essentially are events that are environmentally-friendly, are ones that are organized with the goal of minimizing waste and promoting sustainable actions.  Being green goes beyond simply recycling alone, and instead takes a whole systems approach to the vast flow of resources and waste that can be generated when organizing an event.


One way to make your event more Green is to reduce paper use.  Let's face it, paperwork is a hassle, it’s is a known fact - with Waypoint, you can reduce the paperwork - to save the environment - and make your organizing tasks easier!


In the modern world of event organizing, Technology has become more than just an acquaintance; it has become a confidante. Appropriate Technology offers a variety of ways to get paperwork completed in a quick and efficient manner—all while simultaneously eliminating the task of deciphering illegible handwriting, tracking data on printed sheets, etc.


If you’re an event planner, you can agree that utilizing digital platforms is arguably the most efficient means of organization; it creates an all-encompassing stage for the management of tasks. With this said, switching to an online administration and registration platform for your event not only reduces your overall workload by a ton, but it also is the eco-friendliest means of managing an event. 


Online even registration sites, like ours here at WayPoint (, operate to improve all aspects of your event, including the planning, player registration, and data collection processes. Instead of manually inputting Excel spreadsheets and PDFs—which are not only a total pain, but also completely wasteful—try using a digital platform.


We guarantee that by utilizing an online platform you will not only save yourself a lot of work, but you will also be “Going Green”—and who doesn’t want to brag about that?


Here are some of the other ways you can make your event “Sustainable”:


  • Choose a “Green” caterer

  • Consider a "Green" course to host the event

  • Make sure to have garbage, recycling, and compost bins on-site

  • Encourage car-pooling and alternative transportation for guests

  • Collect left-over materials and save them for later events

  • Promote sustainability


And lastly,


  • Minimize printed materials by choosing WayPoint!
