Green Fern Events is pleased to provide recycling services for the first major event at the new offices for the Austin Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber's open house will be held at their new home, located at the Hilton downtown at 535 East 5th St. 78701 from 4:30p-7:30p. Signature food and drink will be provided by local chamber members including Chez Zee, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Carmelo's, Truluck's, Another Broken Egg, Hilton Downtown and Twin Liquors.
Green Fern Events will gather plastic cups and aluminum cans and take them to a local recycling facility. To give you an idea of the environmental impact even a small community event might have, consider this: 400 people are expected to attend tonight's open house. We have found the best way to measure plastic cups is by volume (not weight) in cubic yards. If everyone uses at least one plastic glass, about 400 cups will be used. By recycling 400 plastic cups, approximately .25 cubic yards of landfill space will be spared and the plastic will be reused!
Recycling and event waste measurement is just one of Green Fern's services:
