For Maryland Day Celebration Weekend, our sites will be "Growing a Little Greener."
The green petal on our Black-Eyed Susan logo hints at the recommendations we've made, working with Annapolis Green, to our Maryland Day sites. We are working to make our event as eco-friendly as possible.
As folks travel to our sites and participate in activities, our goal is for them to see examples of eco-friendly practices including Annapolis Green’s distinctive eco-stations at several downtown venues that encourage and make recycling easy. This year’s debut will be two-fold – helping our sites take sustainable steps by providing the following recommendations and advice. Our goal is to encourage good stewardship as we play, learn, and celebrate our Maryland Day by the Chesapeake Bay!
You will see our eco-stations at these Maryland Day Sites:
As one of Maryland’s leading industries, meetings and events can result in significant environmental impacts. From the amount of waste generated, the amount of materials used, the transportation to and from, and the energy and water consumed during the event, it adds up. For an environmentally responsible organization, Greening events clearly communicates a commitment to minimizing the events' environmental impacts.
And besides, we all want to do the right thing for our cherished environment!
All-electric eCruisers will be helping us shuttle our visitors AND promote by flying banners announcing Maryland Day and our Greening Sponsor in Downtown Annapolis on Saturday and Sunday.
