William Reed, organisers of The Restaurant Show, are committed to being more sustainable and promoting a more sustainable future. Here are 5 ways they are doing this for The Restaurant Show this October.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Recycling is at the forefront of William Reed’s efforts to promote a more sustainable future. This is why they are strongly encouraging exhibitors and visitors to recycle wherever possible. By promoting recycling, William Reed is taking a significant step towards reducing waste and minimising their environmental impact. This initiative not only helps to divert waste from landfills but also reduces the need for raw materials and energy required to produce new products.

In addition to promoting recycling, William Reed is also encouraging exhibitors and visitors to bring their reusable cups and bottles to The Restaurant Show. By doing so, they are reducing the need for single-use plastic cups and bottles, which are a significant source of waste and pollution.

Powering a greener tomorrow with green today!

The Restaurant Show is committed to using green electricity and energy efficient light bulbs wherever possible. These are then switched to LED when they need replacing. Green electricity is sourced from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydropower, and does not produce harmful greenhouse gas emissions like traditional fossil fuel-based electricity.

In addition, replacing conventional light bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs, consumes significantly less energy and last longer. This reduces the need for frequent replacements, which, in turn, saves energy and reduces waste.

Responsible resource management

William Reed ensures responsible resource management by opting for sustainable on-site materials. All PVC shell scheme sheets are recycled, and all pallet wrap packaging used contains 30% recycled content, and is 100% recyclable.

In addition, the exhibition carpet is made from 100% Polypropylene fibres and is recycled after its use, minimising waste and supporting a circular economy.

No plastic badges

Lastly, William Reed will have no plastic badge holders on site.

By eliminating plastic badge holders, William Reed is contributing to the reduction of plastic waste and promoting a more sustainable approach to event management. This initiative also promotes the use of technology and digital solutions, which are eco-friendly alternatives to traditional paper-based methods.
