Actually, Kermit lied…. It’s easier than you might think!

 

 

Making eco friendly decisions about your businesses and about your wedding is becoming easier than you think…

 

 

Some of the things I do everyday in my business and things we do at home are all easy eco friendly choices…

 

 

Using 100% post consumer recycled paper products, recycling ink cartridges and eliminating many of my paper files is a good start…

 

 

I’ve urged wedding professionals NOT to send me extra brochures and business cards as I access nearly everything electronically for clients and as often as files update…their websites are a better resource for me and most clients.

 

 
I’m actually adding a new header “Green Weddings” to the BLOG and will continue to post eco friendly ideas for weddings….

 

 

Here’s a few you’re probably doing already without knowing it….

 

 

Booking guest rooms, ceremony and reception either in the same site, or within walking distance of each other cuts down substantially on carbon emissions from transporting large numbers of guests.

 

 

Candle light – candle light, especially beeswax and soy candles not only adds to the atmosphere, but cuts the use of electricity substantially – as do venues that utilize natural light.

 

 

Go Local – utilizing local products, whether food or locally produced items cuts down on shipping…not only the energy used to ship but in many cases packaging materials.

 

 

While organic foods might be a great choice for the environment…sometimes the fossil fuels used for shipping foods long distances over ride the benefits of going organic…

 

 

Digital photography… surprise… digital images are better for the environment… less paper, fewer chemicals…especially if your photographer offers on line proofing…

 

 

And the list goes on….Keep checking back for new ideas…
