The average meeting attendee generates abut 20 pounds of trash per day.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of meetings and events take place throughout the world. Rescuing, recycling and re-purposing the excess from such programs as well as the venues that host them can go a long way towards helping our planet and we who inhabit it.

The leftovers we will rescue from Kaplan EduNeering’s 2010 Knowledge Summit will include food, food scrap, recyclables, centerpieces, decorations, promotional products, hotel room amenities, meeting and event supplies, and much, much more. Stellar Meetings & Events developed this service in response to the growing demand from companies and individuals who, like us, are looking to make the programs they plan more environmentally friendly and socially responsible.

Immediately following the Kaplan EduNeering Knowledge Summit, we will redirect these items to food banks, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food pantries, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, recycling centers, compost facilities, and a wide range of relief agencies and charitable organizations in the Philadelphia area.

Thank you so much for taking part in what we hope will become a standard way of meeting. Want to do more? Bring a can or package of non-perishable food to add to our food bank donation.
