What the Show did at Expo East 2019...

  • Plastic single use water bottles have been eliminated for all future Natural Products Expos.
  • Condiments and beverages are provided in bulk rather than individual servings.
  • Styrofoam and Foamcore have been banned and eliminated from Exhibitor Service Kit (ESK).
  • Sustainable booth packages available through GES and the ESK.
  • Continued partnership with GES to procure more sustainable products including:
    • Recyclable signage
    • Reuse of banners and carpets-only recycling after several uses
  • The Show Directory Map was printed on FSC certified paper, which ensures products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

What our Sponsors did for Expo East 2019...

Show Bag Sponsor

  • Each show bag was made of 2 recycled plastic 16.9oz water bottles. Therefore creating 10,000 show bags saved 20,000 plastic water bottles from a landfill!
  • These plastic show bags can also be recycled at the end of their life, similar to a #1 plastic bottle.

Lanyard Sponsor

  • The fabric of the lanyard was made of a post-consumer polyester waste called Repreve Polyester Fiber.
  • This fiber is made of 100% recycled plastic water bottles.
