EVENT TABLEWARE RENTALS – CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
For members, local nonprofits, and schools holding events (small or large, up to 150 people), we provide reusable plates, bowls, napkins, flatware, glasses, and more!
ZW CHAMPION TRAINING, BIN, & SIGN RENTALS
Evergreen Sustainability Alliance’s ZW Champion Training and Bin and Sign Rentals are for local organizations aiming to make all of their future events zero waste for a lower cost than our Hero Services. ESA will conduct a training with staff and volunteers, who will then be certified to train any future volunteers or staff regarding best practices for ZW events and the highest possible diversion rates. Trained ZW Champions will be able to rent bins and signs for events, and use ESA compost hauling services after being trained.
- Training Cost: $50
- Set of three bins + signs: $10
- Compost Haul: $25
This is our most sustainable and recommended option because it empowers organizations to go zero waste themselves!
ZERO WASTE HERO SERVICES
Evergreen Sustainability Alliance’s ZW Hero Services are for local organizations desiring to make their event ZW. ZW Heroes discuss the event with organizers in advance to ensure as many ZW (reusable, recyclable, and compostable) options as possible to ensure a high diversion rate from the landfill. Heroes arrive with bins and signage for waste stations compost, recycling, and trash and will help monitor the bins during the event.
Organizations are responsible for recycling and trash removal after the event, as well as providing recycling and trash bins and bags depending on the size of the event. ESA will provide a bin for compost and take the compost (and bins for trash and recycling for smaller events). For larger events, we will ask organizations to provide volunteers who will be trained on site by ESA.
- $35 for the first 50 people + $1/additional person
- (For example, if the event has 200 people the total cost would be $185)
CUSTOM ZW EVENT CONSULTATION
ESA coordinates recycling, trash, and compost pick-up services as well as communication with vendors on sourcing sustainable food service materials. Please contact us for a free consultation and to negotiate rates on this option.
