If you’re anything like me, you give a lot of thought into how you can lessen your impact on this earth. That usually means thinking about what you’re throwing out, what you’re eating, what you’re wearing, where your energy comes from etc. What if I told you, you could work out the carbon footprint of your upcoming wedding so that you could then work to offset and or minimise it further? Well, you can!
Less Stuff More Meaning have worked with experts in the field to come up with the world’s first Wedding Footprint Calculator. You input all the info you know and it does all the work for you. I was married in 2014, so I went back and put all my deets into the calculator to see how we fared – turns out our footprint was around 80% less than the average. It was still higher than I wanted, we DIYed so much so there was a lot of waste and I have people fly over from NZ, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the small decisions I did make – no bonbonniere, local wines, minimal florals, clothes we could re-purpose for example – did make a big difference.
Give it a go, you might be pleasantly surprised as well!
