Green & Sustainability

Our Goal

Plant Based World Expo and our partners strive to be leaders in environmental sustainability for the trade show industry.

Our Initiatives

  • Eliminating the use of carpet on the Expo Hall, which removes over 30,000 sq ft of carpet from our waste.
  • Limiting the amount of paper printed by using smaller Event Guides & relying on our app for streamlining event information.
  • Donating leftover food to City Harvest to eliminate waste.
  • Clearly labeled compost and recycle bins located throughout the event.
  • Using signage that can be easily recycled.
  • Encouraging guests to recycle their badges with us after the event.


We partner with City Harvest NYC, a global food rescue charity. City Harvest rescues perfectly good, nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it for free to New Yorkers experiencing hunger. Over the past 40 years, they have rescued and distributed over one billion pounds of food for our neighbors across the five boroughs who are struggling to put meals on the table.
