Annual Boat & Home Show Goes Green

Sunday, July 21st 2019
The Maine Boat & Home Show, August 9-11, 2019, in Rockland, Maine, has implemented a fleet of new initiatives this year as part of an ongoing effort to become a Zero Waste event. Show organizer John K. Hanson, Jr., said, "We've been moving for a long time toward a goal of being a low-impact event. Most recently, we've cut back on paper mailings, gone to digital ticketing, gotten rid of the plastic wristbands at the entry gates, and we've even asked our exhibitors to bring back their used plastic exhibitor badge holders. Every little bit counts. We've got reusable exhibitor lanyards too, thanks to Rock Harbor Brewing, and in the Awlgrip Exhibitor Lounge the water bottles are recyclable and returnable.
