Learn How to Host an Eco-Friendly Event at a Sustainable Event Space


At Flourish, sustainability isn't just a buzzword; it's built into our way of life. From the moment you step foot into our space, you'll experience our tangible commitment to environmental stewardship. In this guide, we'll share our approach to sustainable event planning, share a few stories of memorable events held at Flourish Coworking and Event Space in West Chester, PA, and offer practical tips for hosting eco-friendly events.


Sustainability at Flourish


At the heart of Flourish lies a deep-rooted commitment to sustainability. Our ethos extends beyond event planning; it permeates every facet of our operations. From the intentional renovation of our building with the selection of eco-friendly heating systems to how sustainability is woven into the very fabric of Flourish. We utilize repurposed furniture and natural materials so that each element of our space serves a purpose and leaves a minimal environmental footprint.


Eco-friendly Event Planning Practices


When it comes to event planning, sustainability is very important to us. We champion eco-friendly practices by using compostable trash bags and recommending compostable utensils and plates to event organizers. Our goal is to help event organizers plan an incredible event with minimal waste and maximum impact. By encouraging conscious consumption and waste reduction, we empower event hosts to make sustainable decisions without compromising on style or functionality.


Memorable Sustainable Events


One of our favorite traditions is our annual Earth Day event—a celebration of sustainability and community engagement. Through interactive workshops and educational initiatives, we inspire attendees to take easy steps to improve their eco-conscious living. While we've faced a few challenges in implementing sustainability ourselves, our unwavering dedication to sustainability has always prevailed and it has become easier day by day as the economic environment drives businesses and governments to make sustainable choices easier and more cost effective. By prioritizing education and collaboration, we turn obstacles into opportunities for growth and celebrate the small wins we can all take to be more sustainable.


Community Can Drive Sustainability


Collaboration is key to fostering a sustainable ecosystem. That's why we actively seek out collaborations with local vendors, suppliers, and community partners who share our commitment to sustainability. Together, we amplify our impact and pave the way for a greener future. It also makes sharing information and best practices easier.  Whether it's sourcing ethically sourced products or supporting eco-conscious initiatives, Flourish is proud to champion sustainability in all its forms.  At our sister brand, Ethereal Farms, our founder Laura DiFrancesco utilizes regenerative farming practices to nourish the surrounding flora and fauna with sustainable practices.


Best Practices for Sustainable Event Planners


For aspiring sustainable event planners, we offer this piece of advice: focus on waste reduction. By conducting a thorough waste audit and implementing strategic measures to minimize waste, you can significantly reduce your event's environmental footprint. Embrace compostable materials, recycle diligently, select decor that can have a longer life and prioritize sustainability every step of the way.
