About 70% of plastic water bottles bought in the US are not recycled, which means the majority end up in landfills or in the oceans It is estimated if we keep at this pace, by 2050 there will be more plastic waste by weight in the oceans than fish. LeadingAge wants to help ensure our next generation of older adults have the opportunity to live in a safe and healthy world, and we need your help.
LeadingAge will be asking attendees to not purchase or use single use water bottles at the 2020 Annual Meeting, and instead to use the many water stations we will be placing around the convention center. We will encourage them to visit any exhibitor who is joining our campaign and giving out re usable water bottles. This is a great way to brand your company, drive leads to your booth and do good for the world at the same time. We will promote this campaign from the keynote stage, directing attendees to a list on the app of company's giving them out along with signage in registration celebrating you.
If you plan to participate, simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject line WATER BOTTLES and we'll add you to our list! This benefit is for 2020 LeadingAge Annual Meeting exhibitors only.
Thanks in advance for helping us make the world a better place!
