Earth Day

Spread the love

April 22 is Earth Day. This worldwide event, first celebrated in 1970, shows support for environmental protection and action to save our planet.

In honor of this day, here are some easy wedding ideas:

Limit the number of glasses used by your guests
It takes water and other resources to wash glasses to keep them available for your guests. Save these precious resources by having each guest only use one glass. Put a sign at the bar so your guests will know to hold on to their glass, and put a cute little tag for guests to write their names on it so they can identify their glass throughout the evening.

Give edible favors
When it comes to favors most wedding planners and wedding guests will agree that edible is best. While personalized coasters or bottle openers or some other little tchotchkes are fun and creative, the type of favor that will actually be used by your guests are the kind that they can eat.

Repurpose “Trash” into beautiful wedding decor
The old saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” certainly holds true for wedding decorations and accessories.

– Turn old light bulbs into hanging flower containers

– Instead of using flowers, create a bouquet out of buttons

– Flowers or other decor can be made from pages of old books

– Paint old food cans and use as vases

Instead of favors, make a donation to the Carbon Fund
CarbonFund.org has many projects, including Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency & Carbon Credits, and Reforestation projects.
