Spotlight > LA resident starts environmentally friendly business

By Gina Schultz

Going “green” and becoming dedicated to sustainable living are buzz phrases in today’s society.
Los Alamos resident Kimberly Hoch has started Piñon Events, a business which consists of conference and event management, but on a level where it is environmentally friendly and a way to reduce a carbon footprint.
“I strive to provide quality event management services for everything from fundraisers to weddings, to large scale conferences and trade shows,” Hoch said.
While living in Colorado, Hoch was employed by BBI International as event manager. BBI International was one of the first professional conference and event companies to implement full scale “no-low waste” greening services for the its events, Hoch said. The point was to use reusable, compostable, or recyclable materials for events, such as cups, napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, signage and marketing materials.
“I’m particularly passionate about leaving the lightest footprint possible and continuing the greening initiatives I learned and implemented,” she said.
Efforts a business can to achieve a green event may include full scale composting and recycling stations, use of bio-products for food and beverage disposable items, electronic marketing and reusable print marketing.
