Planning The Perfect Eco-Wedding

How to strike the balance between creating your dream wedding whilst minimising your environmental impact? The world of weddings and events are major culprits in landfill and CO2. There are an estimated 2.5 million weddings a year, with the average wedding producing nearly 200kgs of rubbish and 63 tons of CO2. Globally that equates to about a billion tons of rubbish and as many emissions as four people would create in a year.  

There are so many ways to reduce waste and to make your day more sustainable without compromising on style. Low waste and eco-friendly does not have to mean low key. Planning with sustainability in mind is crucial as the planet faces such immense environmental challenges. Set off on the right foot as you enter this exciting chapter of life. Your eco-friendly wedding choices may influence others – so lead by example and go green on your big day.

The Dress

Fashion is one of the most environmentally damaging industries in the plant. The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. In fact, it is the second-largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. Say ‘I Do’ in a sustainable, pre-loved or vintage wedding dress.

The Flowers

Flowers are a big and beautiful part of your day - but consider reducing the impact on your wallet and on the environment. Chemical pollution is a big problem. The cut-flower industry is a short-cycle production process that requires the use of agrochemicals which adversely affect soil, air and the water supply. The carbon footprint to import flowers is profound.

The Wine

Pesticides, air miles, lack of rights for workers. The wine industry has a darker side hidden behind the clever branding and tantalising bottles. There’s a simple way to challenge the problems within the wine industry - to use our purchasing power to shift our consumption to organic and Fairtrade brands.
