March 4 & 5, 2013
Charlotte, NC

HMSHost and Simon Property Group hosted the third Ei Partner Tours, highlighting the successes of the Sustainable Food Court Initiative Shopping Mall Pilot Concord Mills, a Simon Mall with the food court operated by HMSHost. In addition to Ei Partner presentations and Concord Mills tours, the Ei Partners visited Earth Farms (destination for Concord Mill’s food waste), SouthPark (another Simon Mall in Charlotte), and the Charlotte-Douglas Airport where HMSHost operates foodservice outlets.

The IMPACT Blog post, Charlotte Ei Partner Tours, gives a tours overview while the ZWA Blog post, Bring the Possible Out of Impossible, dives into zero-waste successes.
