Bloomington office goes green!
Recently, our Bloomington (formally Minneapolis) office held an Open House event for clients, subconsultants, friends, and coworkers. In addition to showing off our new digs and celebrating our 20th anniversary in Minnesota, the open house was our first zero waste event!
To achieve this, party organizers:
- Used only BPI-compostable utensils, plates, cups, and napkins—no plastic!
- Sent out electronic invitations
- Planned ahead to reduce food waste
- Recycled all cans and glass bottles
- Did not use decorations
- Supplied local food, beer, wine, and liquor
The new office is more accessible to environmentally friendly transit options, and several employees now take the light rail or bike to work. We are currently working toward a zero-waste office. This is directly in line with our sustainability plan we rolled out earlier this year.
At its core, sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future. If we want our company to continue to be a positive force into the future, it is our responsibility to plan for and foster a sustainable path forward. The Bloomington open house was a huge success and definitely a step in the right direction! Everyone had a great time, and we showed you don’t need to waste resources to host an awesome celebration.
