    Vad gör vi på Easyfairs?

    Vi vill minska användningen av engångsprodukter​

    Att använda material en kort stund för att sedan slänga det är inte hållbart. Engångsprodukter har olika typer av påverkan på miljön – dels medför de resursförbrukning och dels hamnar de ofta i naturen vilket leder till nedskräpning. Att använda flergångsalternativ gör att vi minskar resursförbrukningen avsevärt. Dessutom bidrar det till att minska nedskräpningen.  Engångsartiklar är en stor källa till nedskräpning. Eftersom plast har svårt att brytas ner i naturen skadas många fåglar och däggdjur av att fastna i plasten eller äta av plasten.  På grund av den långa nedbrytningstiden är plast ett växande miljöproblem och att minska användningen av engångsartiklar är en åtgärd för att minska risken att plast hamnar i naturen. Engångsartiklar står också för en förbrukning av resurser. Även om produkten återvinns så förloras energi och material-värden. Det bästa är därför att använda produkten flera gånger. På så sätt sparar vi på resursuttaget från jorden men också på energi.




    Stand design & Waste

    Choose a reusable stand package from the organiser or design your own stand so that the structure will be reused several times, year after year. Work with your stand builder to make your stand as durable as possible! Avoid creating a disposable stand just for one occasion. Create reusable signs (without any date on it) made from recyclable materials and with eco-friendly ink whenever possible. Use LED lighting and other energy-efficient equipment for your stand and don’t forget to switch it off at the end of the day. Try not to use carpet, and if you really need it, preferably choose reusable carpet tiles. If you use regular carpet, make sure it is recyclable and that it will be recycled.

    Travel & Accomodation

    Whenever possible, choose public transportation or carpool with your colleagues.
    Select a hotel within walking distance and/or implement environmentally friendly practices.

    Shipping & Logistics

    Consolidate your shipments and preferably use transport and logistics companies that apply sustainable practices. Favour local suppliers to support the local economy and reduce transport. Favour suppliers with environmental and social credentials.

    Food & Food waste

    Bring your own reusable water bottle and use our water stations to help us reduce the use of single-use plastics. If you serve food at your stand, preferably choose locally produced and plant-based options. Please note that from 1 January 2024 it is forbidden to use disposable items containing more than 15% plastic. Read more here. This is good to keep in mind when planning your activities for the stand. Avoid food waste and order only the amount of food needed.

    Social responsability

    Take an active role in the various initiatives and discussions during the event that will support sustainable development within your industry.
    Inspire visitors by showcasing the sustainable features of your products.
