Greening the Office Party

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection (CT DEP) has begun to "green" its holiday office parties. This year, in conjunction with the Campaign for Charitable Giving, staff held a “Plate Sale” where donated, reusable plates and cups were sold so that staff could use these at the annual party, instead of disposables. Proceeds from the sale were donated to charity.

Recycling stations were also set up on each floor so that food waste could be collected for the building compost, and bottles and foil containers could be recycled. The CT DEP Commissioner noted in an employee publication that there was much less trash produced during the building’s 2007 holiday parties. In addition, more staff now has durable plates and utensils to use for everyday. Members of the agency’s P2 Work Group organized the party greening project.
