Creating a wedding that isn't wasteful or polluting
is appealing to more couples. You can not imagine the percentage of wedding favors I see at every reception that are left behind only to be thrown into the garbage.The number of earth-friendly products and
services is growing, giving the bride and groom a range of options. It
is often as simple as buying local. For instance, supporting a local
artisan is much more earth friendly than having cheap trinkets shipped
half way around the world.
One of the more obvious eco-friendly wedding favor ideas for couples is to give something organic.
Your wedding flowers can be a place where you can
make conscientious decisions which can have big eco consequences. Many
flowers sold are imported from developing countries where pesticide use
is very high and labor conditions and wages are low.
Choosing a florist where organically grown,
in-season, local flowers are used can be a much better earth friendly
choice. This will remove the need for long-distance transportation.
