RUSA supports the ALA Sustainability Roundtable and is committed to making Annual Conference more sustainable by supporting the following:

  • Use low-carbon transportation (rideshare, bike, train, bus) and, when it is not an option, I will carpool 
  • Bring my reusable water bottle and reusable bag with me
  • Use the Conference mobile app rather than a printed version
  • Use the linen and towel reuse program at my hotel, and turn off the lights and TV when I leave the hotel room
  • Responsibly dispose of waste materials by recycling at the convention center, hotel, and other recycling stations around the city
  • Return or recycle my conference badge holder / lanyard at the end of the conference
