Eco Friendly Favors

Things to consider when designing your wedding or special event favor, or memento.

1. Can you eat it?
2. Do you want to save it, or will it be thrown away?
3. Is it useful? Can it be used for more than one purpose?
4. Is it made from, or packaged in environmentally friendly material?

After considering these questions, you can begin to design the event memento that will remind others of your special day, and will allow you to feel good about sharing with the guests.

While the old-style favor that was made of plastic, and wrapped in nylon tulle, may have shouted out, "Festive!", it's no longer the favor of choice. The traditional favor would have been saved in a drawer for years, but would undoubtedly find its way to the trash, eventually. Millions of weddings, with millions of favors, creating a great deal of non-biodegradable waste in our landfills.

Work to create a memento that is either
edible (cookie or candy), reusable (containers), recyclable (glass), useful (fan for cooling at the wedding, or a note pad for later).

Check with your wedding planner for eco-friendly or Greener event favors and mementos. Let your special day be remembered by you and your guests in a eco-friendly way.

Live Plants are a Great Green Choice

Choosing live plants as your special occasion center piece is a great way to go Green. This grapevine topiary made a lovely focal point, and will be the start of someone's grape garden.

By making small changes to traditional wedding and special occasion decorating plans, you can make a positive impact on the environment.

Talk with your wedding planner for additional Greener or Eco Friendly wedding plans, and greener decorating ideas.
