Platinum Awards 2023

A Sustainable Awards Gala in New Westminster

WasteKnot was honoured to organize the Platinum Awards gala 2023 with the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce. Presented by Douglas College and brought to fruition with the help of several amazing sponsors and vendors, this event was also planned with the planet in mind. 

Some sustainable choices for the Platinum Awards 2023 included: zero-waste appetizers from three great New West restaurants; programs printed on Sugar Sheet paper; all graphics plus the Step and Repeat backdrop sign and lanyards did not include the date on them for reuse year after year; naturally dried florals and greenery from Yakashiro Farms instead of fresh cut flowers; rented decor from Bespoke and Pedersen’s Event Rentals; encouraged attendees to wear something old, borrow, or rented (not new); encouraged attendees to carpool or use public transit
