We are featuring Green Party Events! Here’s what they had to say!
What brings you to Tallahassee?
We both first came to Tallahassee as FSU students in the 80’s. Tallahassee is our long-time home and also the perfect place from which to launch Green Party Events. This is not only because Tallahasseans like a good party, but also because there is such a deep-seated and real concern in our community about the environment.
What makes your business stand out?
We know of no other business – in Tallahassee or anywhere – that does what Green Party Events does. We’re all about planning top-notch parties – and often very large ones – with minimal environmental impact; through material reduction, onsite recycling and compost collection, and post-event donation to charitable organizations. Our events are big, but their footprints are small.
How long have you had your business?
Green Party Events launched in January 2015. Our goals in starting the company were to help clients plan awesome celebrations and to help change the way Tallahasseans think about event waste. Our message has been resonating very well and as a result, our first year was pretty amazing. Over the course of 14 events, we kept nearly half a ton of event waste out of the landfill by recycling 286 pounds, composting 702 pounds, and donating to charity leftover food and decorations. We’re creating the kind of company that is making a real difference, that is giving back to the community, and that is a whole lot of fun.
What do you want your customers to know about your business that they may not already know?
Call it being thrifty, call it being cheap, call it loving a good bargain. At the heart of everything we do is a desire to do more with less, make the best use of what we have, and save clients as much money as possible – without scarifying their style, their vision, or the environment. So, you don’t have to be rich to hire us. And in fact, most of the time, we save our clients more money than we cost them.
