Event sustainability industry body, isla, in partnership with Print Working Group, have developed the Better Buying for Print – An Event Planners Guide. The free resource is available to the entire events industry to support planners in making better print choices for events.
The guide is designed to help event organisers offset the negative impacts printing (particularly with synthetic resins and harmful chemicals) has on the planet.
The project has been spearheaded by Laura Fell, isla Print Working Group Lead and Head of Graphic Production at GPJ. Laura says: “We recognise that wasteful graphics for one-time use needs to be a thing of the past. This re-think of event planning cannot fall only to print suppliers. With this guide, we’re hoping to empower event planners across the industry to make better choices and educate their clients to make more informed decisions too. This will, in turn, enable large format printers to forge better relationships with the supply chain, and will one day eliminate really wasteful single-use signage materials.
