Fosie J. Events’ green achievements include communicating with clients and vendors via electronic technology and online bill payments, practicing the “3 R’s” (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), printing on double-sided, eco-friendly paper and using eco-certified materials and equipment for lighting, office and printing supplies, cleaning supplies, linens, dinner and glassware. The office is also designed to take advantage of natural lighting during the day time in order to reduce energy consumption. Moreover, Fosie J. Events supports and works with other local green businesses to promote a more sustainable small business community.
Fosie J. Norton, CEO and President of the company, originally decided to go green because of her strong belief in protecting the environment and the desire to lead an eco-conscious family lifestyle. This led her to take initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint. “Being in the event industry,” Norton says, “there are many choices to make about the resources we use, what to provide guests, and how to deal with waste. Thus, incorporating green practices into the decision making of the planning process is key to a sustainable event.” Beyond the environmental benefit, Norton confirms that going green has proven to be economically beneficial and allows her to educate potential clients about the positive impacts of being environmentally responsible. Fosie J. Events’s environmental consciousness proves that a smart green agenda makes business sense while improving the planet.
