Waste Reduction

As part of P-POD’s mission, we strive to use environmentally sound practices.

As a professional conference serving hundreds of attendees, we recognize that our greatest sources of waste are: 


Paper and Printed Materials

We encourage our registrants to refer to our online agenda.

Printed agendas are available upon request; when possible our materials are printed on 100% recycled paper.


Food and Ware

We encourage attendees to bring their own thermoses or water bottles if possible.

Our 2020 meals will be served on durable dishware.
