The average wedding in the U.S. produces 400 pounds of garbage and 63 tons of CO2. This can include flowers, paper (invitations), textiles (dresses, suits), gas emissions (transportation), and so much more. Together, American weddings are equivalent to 8.3 million cars driving on the road for a year. (Source: Green Bride)
Environmentally friendly planning does not mean that an event needs to be zero waste. it means that we are conscientious about the resources consumed in the production of your event, and that you search out ways to make environmentally friendly choices throughout the planning process.
Oak & Honey Events does all the things a typical planner does but is especially adept at reducing the impact your wedding has on the environment. As part of our planning process we regularly find creative ways to help you source materials and design details locally, and to work with green or do-good vendors who give back to the community.
