Weddings have a bad reputation in the eco-conscious community for contributing so largely to environmental waste. Party favors, flowers, excess food, and single-use plastics are often thrown into trash bins after only a few hours.
Let’s shift the conversation toward weddings being more mindful of their environmental impact. Your wedding can leave a smaller carbon footprint. You can easily opt for more eco-friendly ideas while still keeping your same wedding day vision. Choose party favors that are reusable or made from post-consumer recycled materials. Donate your flowers to a local hospital or nursing home. Talk with your caterers to see if they can donate leftover food to a local food bank.
And all of your plastic tableware? Thankfully, single-use plastic is out! One of the biggest tips on our eco-friendly wedding planning list is using biodegradable party cups, plates, and servingware. Compostables are in. And, they’ve gotten a more budget-friendly, eco-conscious, and stylish makeover.
