Sustainability Program

Inspiring Sustainable Impact means...

Providing ways for attendees and exhibitors to be more sustainable at our events and throughout the rest of the year. Click the + signs below to see our guides.


Water Conservation

  • Participate in your hotel’s Linen ReUse Program- Did you know that you can often earn Rewards points for participating? Ask your hotel about their specific awards incentives!
  • Take shorter showers to save water and time!


Waste Reduction

  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup throughout the conference.
  • Take only what you need at food functions.
  • Download the official Expo West app that'll have important event information including the show map!
  • Ask for a recycling bag for your hotel room if one isn’t in place.


Energy Conservation

  • Turn off lights and thermostat when leaving your hotel room.
  • If exhibiting, be sure to power down your booth at the end of each show day.


Air Quality/CO2 Impact

  • Carpool or take public transport to/from the airport and to/from your hotel. Make new friends and contacts while saving CO2!
  • Take advantage of the free hotel shuttle (if available)… or even better, walk if possible.
  • Offset your travel to/from Expo West.
  • Choose to eat vegetarian or vegan at least one meal per day OR make the commitment eat meat free ALL WEEK.

We encourage all exhibitors at the 2023 Natural Products Expo West tradeshow to take the Sustainability Exhibitor Survey to showcase what their company is doing for people and planet. Here are some things we'll do in exchange:

  • The New Hope Network Sustainability Kiosk onsite at Expo West will recognize your brand as a "Sustainable Brand" and will feature a special showcase with your product!
  • The Expo West mobile app will include a special filter for "Sustainable Brands" to help attendees find your booth faster.
  • Participating brands get a chance to be featured on @natprodexpo's Instagram Stories (tagging the brand & booth # call-out) leading up to the show, providing extra coverage of your brand before the show even begins!

*Sustainability Survey is NOW OPEN & will close Sunday, February 26!

Reduce signage waste by:

  • Encourage less printing and provide more information digitally when it comes to booth literature, fulfilling requests via email and website referrals
  • If you must print, create reusable non-dated signs that can be used year after year
  • Avoid foamcore signs and request recyclable material such as cardboard signage

Reduce booth waste by:

  • Requesting sustainable options from GES
  • BYOF!- Avoid carpet and bring your own flooring, like puzzle foam flooring that can be reused at all your shows
  • Break down ALL cardboard boxes and put in the correct recycling bin
  • Request additional booth bins for recycling and compost collection
  • Use only compostable or recyclable serviceware for samples and give-a-ways
  • Use the stickers provided at the Exhibitor Services desk to mark your materials for recycling or donation
  • Set a goal to leave no trace behind by shipping out all booth properties and packing materials and donating extra giveaways

Visit one of our 3-bin Waste Stations to compost food, compostable cups and other biodegradable products.
