1. Benefits Of Going Green
There are several benefits to planning a green wedding. Not only will you be reducing your impact on the environment, but you’ll also likely be supporting local businesses and finding that there are quite a few savings associated with going green for your big day.
There are approximately 2.5 million weddings yearly in the US. Each of these weddings produces, on average, more than 60 tons of carbon dioxide and nearly half a ton of garbage. Add to that the environmental impact of all the trappings of a traditional wedding, and you’ve got a whole lot of mess and waste on your hands. Everything from your use-it-once wedding dress to your gorgeous bouquet has its own impact on the environment.
