When procuring bags for your next event, try sourcing these locally, in the city or province your event is being held. Not only will this reduce the carbon footprint of your event but you will also be supporting the local economy. Look to NGO’s, sewing co operatives and small businesses and buy local.
Conference Bags made from either natural materials, like jute, bamboo or hemp are great alternatives and recycled materials such as used advertising banners or flour & rice sacks make for unique delegate bags and will set your event apart from the mass produced imports that are widely available.
When designing your bags, ensure they can be used after the conference or summit, perhaps with a removable logo. This will extend the life of your conference bags as delegates will be more likely to reuse them after the event.
Also try to take advantage of companies or organisations who collect used delegate bags for donations to local schools, this not only recycles your conference bags but helps underprivileged learners who cannot afford school bags.
