Considering the Conference Footprint
Julie Montgomery serves as as the Sustainable Enterprise Conference Greening Director.
See the 2013 Greening Statement
In the spirit of decreasing the “footprint” of the conference, the Sustainable Enterprise Conference is taking a number of steps to model green event production practices...
- choosing a venue that is pioneering sustainable design & philosophy and that features energy produced from solar power
- maximizing electronic communication and limiting print material
- printing our conference program on recycled paper stock.
- offering a local and sustainable/organic lunch, beverages and snacks
- encouraging ride sharing with WeGo Sonoma
- providing filtered water from bulk dispensers
- using ceramic vs disposable dish ware
- collaborating with Sally Tomatoes to maximize waste diversion through recycling and composting on conference day
- sourcing local vendors for conference logistics
- decorating with living plants that will be donated to local gardens (350 Home & Garden Challenge)
- offsetting our impact with a social, economic and environmental program - carbon offset

Bikepooling with Erin
Given the sun-shiny day we are looking at this Friday, we also recommend creating your own "bike-pools". To catch up with a group of cyclists coming from Petaluma, email email@example.com. She'll likely be leaving from Lydia's The Sunflower Center at 7am in the morning on Friday, but please email her to confirm.
Bring a live organic vegetable start for 350 Gardens.
