Hello Eco-Conscious Wedding Enthusiasts,

My name is Britney and it is my intention to use this page as a platform for sharing ideas and inspirations to encourage environmentally savvy weddings. In Canada the average wedding costs $31, 685 and much of this money is spent on items and services that are later discarded. If the notion of going green seems intimidating then let me assure you that even small and thoughtful changes can make a large difference and these eco-conscious choices will help to make the special celebration less excessive. The general principle that this page follows is the simple rule of the three R’s — Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. There are many ways to integrate this principle and it’s much easier to do than you may think. Thank you for stopping by The Eco-Bride Project
