Many people are working towards living a “green” lifestyle. They are making choices that are eco-friendly. Products and/or services must have sustainability and renewability. So, why not start off your new life as a married person with eco-friendly wedding favors? With some thought and creativity, you can help the environment and still provide a meaningful momentum to your wedding guests.
As the green movement is gaining in popularity, so are eco-friendly wedding favors. In fact, you can now find numerous environmentally friendly wedding favors and at all price points. Some ideas are below.
Probably the most obvious eco-friendly wedding favors are plant seeds. Seeds come in a wide variety. Chose ones with meaning, whether they are seeds of your wedding flowers or just simply your favorite kind of flower. Personalize them with their packaging and presentation. Plantable paper is also available.
While not such a unique idea, candles are good wedding favors. Candles can be enjoyed by everyone and are not simply another trinket to sit on a shelf. Choose beeswax candles which are more unusual, naturally non-toxic, soot free and environmentally friendly. Beeswax candles are available in a variety of styles and shapes including floating heart candles to represent love or even snowflakes, a good idea for a winter wedding.
Bamboo frames, coasters
Anything bamboo is a good idea for a green wedding favor. Bamboo is an extremely environmentally friendly, relatively inexpensive, and highly durable. Picture frames, coasters, boxes, bags, business card holders, are all gifts which can be personalized while not harming the environment.
Handmade soaps, lip balms, lotions, sunscreens can be green and personalized to fit your decor. Use all natural ingredients and scents and make them biodegradable. Also, by making your own favors, you do not have to use any animal products, making them vegan in nature. You cannot get much more eco-friendly.
Place card holders
Serving two purposes, place card holders can be an excellent wedding favor. Environmentally friendly, you can find many types of place card holders. Seashells, mini fans, polished rocks, or birdseed hangers for summer or beach weddings are excellent choices. For the more adventuresome or outdoors-type of person or wedding, place card holders made out of vines, pine cones, or bamboo are great ideas.
These are just some of the numerous eco-friendly wedding favors currently available. Do some research, be creative, use your imagination, and start your green lifestyle together.
