Reusable Water Bottle

Each year at WBENC, we make strides towards holding an event that more closely follows the precepts of sustainability by reducing our paper output and being more efficient in our energy consumption. This year’s Sustainability Sponsors, Honda of America, Mfg and Limb Design, both care deeply about incorporating more and more sustainable practices. Focusing on reducing the number of single-use water bottles, Honda of America, Mfg and Limb Design have sponsored a reusable water bottle. Grab this bottle from your bag and look for the Sustainability Sponsors’ logos on hydration stations throughout the Marriott Marquis to reduce your waste and stay hydrated throughout the event.
