5 Eco-friendly Wedding Favours to Consider
“The Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for.” – Ernest Hemingway
With every passing day, people are becoming more conscious and aware of their surroundings and the environment. Everybody is trying to make an effort to conduct and indulge in activities that are more eco-friendly – this includes weddings as well.
A lot goes to waste during a wedding and this is not a time to overlook that. It is important that most elements are put too good use and can come in handy in the future as well. Here are 5 eco-friendly options that you can consider for the wedding:
Plantable Seed Paper

Plantable seed paper is basically biodegradable and eco-friendly paper that has been created without harming any trees and has been embedded with seeds. All you have to do is soak the paper in water for a few hours, cut it into smaller squares and plant them in a pot with soil. Make sure to keep watering this 1-2 times a day to keep the soil and paper damp. You will see the results growing in a few days!

Imagine receiving a small potted plant as a wedding favour – really cute and convenient, right? You can place it on your nightstand, office table or on a windowsill. It is eco-friendly and will add a pop of greenery.
Reusable Straws and Water Bottles

Plastic straws are extremely harmful to flora and fauna. Also, while the paper straws are a great idea, in reality, it doesn’t feel great to have the paper crumble and get mixed in with your drink. Bamboo, metal, glass or silicone straws work best since they are reusable. Make sure to do your research beforehand!

Rather than disposing your wedding decorations, leave it up to the guests to pick and choose what they wish to take home. As long as everything is in working condition and is of valuable use to the guest, this is a great way of reusing your wedding decorations!
