SelfEco recently revealed a new line of disposable, eco-friendly dishes called Compostable without Compromise. The line features more than 20 products with 12 separate designs that will allow event planners to go green in style.

The bioplastic products include a variety of drinkware, catering ware and utensils, which can be used for a range of different events.

“SelfEco has created a line of upscale, attractive and durable disposable service ware that fits great into many event and party themes,” says Connie Weigel, director of purchasing for Kelber Catering, “It is all compostable and perfectly supports our sustainable hospitality practices.”

Adding design and quality to disposable dishware, SelfEco believes event planners shouldn’t sacrifice style or durability in order to be eco-friendly. “Compostable products should be superior to the non-recyclable, disposable products they replace. You should not have to make sacrifices to use them. You should feel proud and excited to use them,” says Danny Mishek, president of SelfEco. “We have transformed compostable party and catering ware from products customers are forced to use to products they want to use because of their quality and appeal.”

Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
