How to plan an eco-friendly zero-waste wedding

Here are a few tips to help you get started

Start off by sending eco-friendly invites

And for the big day…..

Replace flowers with satin. Cloth not only makes for a good decorative element, but also for fancy garlands.

Use candles and solar power lanterns to add a rustic finish

Do away with plastic, use edible cutlery instead or even reusable cutlery, with traditional banana leaf plates

Go organic and animal friendly with non-animal tested dispensable toiletries and even make-up! You can also try your hand at organic mehendi.

If you’re an animal lover, there is always more room  for four-legged guests, as long as you make sure they do their bit to ensure zero waste! At the end of the party, you can even send your guests off  with return gifts in jute bags

And that’s how you can embark on a new journey, with zero carbon footprints
