The Green Dot Awards will be a zero-waste event and produced with every effort made to be environmentally responsible from the venue itself which is fully solar powered, harvests it’s own rain water and has recycled, re-used and re-purposed many of it’s existing attributes, plastic water bottle free with reusable stainless steel bottles provided by ecousable, all paper and printed materials are able to be reused, recycled or composted down to the eco-friendly cocktails courtesy of VeeV and organic wines provided by Parducci Wines to the sustainable designed trophies made from recycled glass and bamboo.

The Green Dot Awards strive to acknowledge and promote forward thinking businesses and individuals that create environmentally responsible products or services and to reward revolutionary green business plans and proposals. Businesses with a Green Dot Award are given an ideal opportunity to market their organizations and products as environmentally responsible. As increasing numbers of consumers and stakeholders are requesting evidence of eco-sustainability and good practices, the need for recognition is now vital.
