Happy Earth Day + Happy 5th Anniversary to Green Fern Events!
Five years ago today was the official launch of my company, Green Fern Events (GFE). What an incredible journey it’s been so far. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to create a company that achieves two things that I love most – planning events and saving the planet! Not only does GFE plan amazing events that support the growth of global environmental sustainability (i.e., clean tech, organics recycling, renewable energy, etc.), we produce them in a way that has the least environmental impact. To date, GFE has diverted almost 10 tons of waste from landfills as a result of smart strategic planning and waste management. We have provided these services for organizations such as US Composting Council, Bazaarvoice, Cielo Wind Power, Herbalismo – A Medicinal Plant Conference, Austin Chamber of Commerce, US Green Building Council – Central, TX, and Technology Transition Corporation to name a few. To put this into perspective, 10 tons is approximately the size of TEN ADULT ELEPHANTS!
What if every event planning company did this? Think how much waste we would reduce from landfills here in Austin, in Texas, around the globe. This has been my dream since Green Fern’s inception in 2009. To influence the growth of the “green events” industry so that it will eventually become standard practice.
Green Fern Events (GFE) is Texas’ premier sustainable event management and production company. Based in Austin, TX – GFE helps clients across the nation reduce the negative environmental impacts of their events while at the same time delivering high-quality, flawless, professionally-executed events at a cost effective price. From conferences and tradeshows for 1000+ attendees, to corporate seminars and social events for hundreds of guests, we realize first and foremost that events needs to be delivered successfully. No matter the size and scope of your event, GFE works with each of our clients to make every event exceptional.
This weekend Green Fern Events will manage a Special Earth Day Event for Cielo Wind Power in Amarillo, Texas. Life is good! Thanks to everyone who has supported the growth of Green Fern Events and the dream I have of making this world a better place for our children, our grandchildren and generations to come.
