As an exhibitor, you play a key role in continuing the DLCC's g1 practices. g1(greenfirst) is our dedication to environmental sustainability. Your consideration of the environment starts with the products you bring into the DLCC.
Ways to Reduce!
When deciding the exhibit booth materials for your show, there are key components to consider:
Contact a Pittsburgh printer to print environmentally-friendly pamphlets, handouts, and banners, thus reducing transportation emissions.
Compare recycled contents of promotional items and booth materials before purchasing.
Look at your cleaning products label — is it green certified?
During Move-in, Use:
Large blue recycle dumpsters on the exhibit floor for trash.
Cloth table throws to protect your display tables and carpeting. Avoid visqueen.
Layered clothing for comfort. Since the large movable doors are open, we are unable to regulate the temperatures of the Halls.
During the Show, Use:
Large trash receptacles (trash, paper, cans/bottles) in g1 areas located on the show floor for large volumes of trash.
Levy Restaurants' locally-grown food options for your booth catering.
Virtual company information for potential clients, thus reducing the number of printed materials.
During Move-out, Use:
Large blue recycle dumpsters located in the exhibit hall for all trash including wood pallets.
Donate extra product to local charities or schools instead of shipping back materials. Contact the Show Event Manager for more details.
Starch-based, biodegradable packing peanuts for shipping. These peanuts dissolve in water, are non-toxic and can be composted.
Biodegradable cellulose available for shrink-wrapping. Polystyrene, plastic wrapping and bubble wrap should be avoided.
Biodegradable string (ie: cotton, sisal, jute), avoiding plastic.
If extra booth giveaway items are not being shipped back to your office, contact DLCC event manager for the items to be donated to a Pittsburgh charity.
