Hang that nametag on something sustainable this year!
Who the heck are you, anyway?
For WOC11 we've posed the question as a metaphor for thinking about audience (here), we've asked participants to share in advance of the event, and at Hollyhock we'll all start out wearing nametags to avoid the awkward conversations that start, "I'm sure I've met you, but I don't know your name..."
Usually, those name tags are hung on disposable thingees. This year, we're partering with Fairware to use lanyards that have been used before and will be used again.
Here's the deal:
The lanyards are composed of recycled plastic bottles and were manufactured in St. Catherine’s, ON, Canada by a supplier that meets Fairware’s Supplier Code of Conduct
We'll use them at Hollyhock, collect them when we're done, and get them back to Fairware.
We'll also take pictures of ourselves doing smart/fun/world-changinge/eviable things wearing the lanyards and upload them to Fairware's Lanyard Library, where they'll be posted and shared to inspire others to use these awesome recycled lanyards.
It's a perfect fit for WOC and Hollyhock's values, and we're thrilled for the partnership. Check 'em out next week on Cortes Island.
