A new resource has been specifically designed to help planners and suppliers incorporate green principles into every aspect of organizing an event, especially conferences and meetings. The Blue Green Meetings site includes a broad list of other links and resources, which should get planners thinking about all kinds of sustainability issues. A step-by-step guide helps users through every part of the process, from choosing a location, venue and transportation to deciding on food and beverage choices. The site was launched with the help of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Oceans Blue Foundation.
