“Being an inclusive part of our community means a dedication to our local environment. It is our responsibility to care about how much waste we produce. Our partnership with Impact Earth for our major events ensures we are able to do our part! In addition, one of our team members even runs a green-tech company. We're dedicated AND we believe we must constantly evolve and improve! “

Why TedXRochester Strives to be Zero Waste…

“Conferences are full of waste! TEDxRochester has been always been committed to running the most sustainable event possible. From reusable glassware, to composting and serving unpackaged food (the liquid nitrogen frozen snacks were popular last year!) the planning team is always experimenting with clean, sustainable, solutions.”

What They Like about Living Zero Waste…

“It causes us to be mindful and intentional about contributing more than we are taking.”

Their Favorite Green Spaces in Rochester…

“We are lucky to have so many!  If we had to choose--Durand Eastman Beach--it's quintessentially Rochester. It draws everyone!”
