This is something we had just recently started working to be more aware of and have attempted to be more proactive in helping to make a reality for our clients.
It was really neat to hear that the News Press was interested in bringing the option of Green Weddings forward to it’s readers here in Santa Barbara. I think a bit of what I had to say about going green wasn’t quite the happy marriage stuff that worked for a newspaper article like this, so there’s only one quote from me, but it was fun to express my opinions of looking at your carbon footprint and realizing that in reality, the biggest place to cut back is usually in transportation.
Brides who are interested in having a green wedding here in Santa Barbara or anywhere around the world should definitely check out TerraPass.com and their Wedding Carbon Footprint Calculator. If you are having a destination wedding and can’t help but have guests fly to your wedding you can still make a huge difference and purchase Carbon Offsets through TerraPass.
It’s awesome to see brides becoming more and more concerned with this and take note of how they can help their wedding to be more green. We’re excited (as mentioned in the article) to be offering a new album which is printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper as well as produced in a factory that is 100% wind energy powered. Soooo cool!
Oh, and for those of you who want to read the article, you can click here to read the story. They also interviewed our past clients Carlton and Paola about their wedding. These two truly get it when it comes to going green and it was inspiring to chat with them about their wedding and how they worked to make their wedding more environmentally friendly.
