Sustainable marketing focus of April's AdBite
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Making an Impact Without Leaving a Trace

BEND, Ore. -- It's a green world out there and only getting greener - in the environmentally sustainable way. In celebration of Earth Month, Advertising Federation of Central Oregon (AdFed) presents "Sustainable Marketing - Making an Impact Without Leaving a Trace," at the Thursday, April 23 AdBite, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., St. Charles Medical Center, Bend.


"For this extremely timely topic, we've invited a panel of experts to discuss how businesses and agencies can leave their mark on consumers, while reducing their carbon footprint," said AdFed's Cam Davis. "More importantly, they'll talk about how businesses can sustain themselves in the short term, while sustaining the planet in the long run. We'll cover everything from printing on all-recycled paper to marketing without using any natural resources at all."

Tickets for the luncheon are $10.00 for members and $30.00 for non-members and can be purchased online or by calling the AdFed hotline at 541.385.1992. Reservations are required by noon Monday, April 20.                

"This will be an engaging conversation about how each of us can do more to green our marketing efforts," Davis said. "Come prepared to ask questions and win prizes for carpooling or taking public transportation to the event."

Davis adds that panel discussion will be led by Bend's Environmental Center's Katy Brice.
