Democrat National Convention goes green

If the Democrat National Convention, being held this week in Charlotte, North Carolina, can take steps to becoming a green event, is there any excuse for any other major conference or expo for not doing the same?

According to a number of media reports, the DNC is using:

  • improved recycling programs
  • low toxicity paints
  • reusable water bottles
  • shuttle bus service for delegates
  • bicycle buses, each holding eight delegates
  • electric powered machinery
  • non-toxic adhesives
  • recycled polyester carpeting
  • reusable structures
  • locally sourced and organic foods

One of the better sources of information about the greener DNC is TheHill.com at http://thehill.com/conventions-2012/dem-convention-charlotte/246927-democrats-work-to-go-green-at-venues-during-convention
