Green Event Planning is fast becoming an important aspect of any event planning. Many event organizers and decorators are becoming more responsible by recognizing that events, functions and weddings can leave a positive impact on the environment by simply adopting an eco-friendly attitude. We live in an environmentally conscious era where we are held liable for every little piece of wastage that gets tossed in our finely balanced eco-system. If you have not yet considered going green for your next event then you should ask yourself why not?
Here are a few easy to follow tips you can use to make your next event an environmental success:
Every choice makes a difference
When planning an eco-friendly function it is important to remember that it is not just the day of the event that makes your event green, but every step leading up to it. Knowing this will determine how you plan. Using local suppliers that are close to your venue, for example, will reduce carbon emissions when transporting items to and from your event. Encourage your caterers to use fresh unwrapped food from markets in your area instead of purchasing from big stores. The fresher the food, the better it tastes.
Whether you are planning a stylish event, a formal function or just a social gathering, a green solution can be exactly what you want it to be. Being eco-friendly does not mean you have to neglect any aspects of your theme. You would be surprised to learn just how many stylish eco-friendly décor ideas one can come across when looking for ways to keep an environmentally friendly event. It is important to note that whatever decor you are looking for must either be recyclable, reusable, natural and/or biodegradable. This means absolutely no plastics and no items that are chemically treated. Rather replace plastics by using glass or safer alternatives. Being eco-friendly gives you the opportunity to deliver a truly unique event. In doing so, you take responsibility for your environment, leaving a positive impact on a negative situation.
