More Green Tips

Duvall Catering & Event Design fully supports sustainable and green practices in the workplace.  Here are a few simple ways to make your event environmentally friendly:

  • Arrange for proper transportation for out-of-town guests to reduce carbon footprint.  Green Taxi of Charleston is leading the way in green navigation.
  • Always monitor final guest count to minimize waste.
  • Try to use candlelight as much as possible for energy efficiency.
  • Always use real china, glassware, flatware and linens instead of disposable items.  If venues do not allow glass, use compostable or recycled items.
  • Have your wedding and reception in one location so the guests do not travel from one location to another.
  • Use biodegradable stationary or recycled paper products for invitations and thank you cards. A well known company is Twisted Limb Paper.
  • Try forgoing flower decorations all together because most florals are doused with chemicals. Instead try using non-floral arrangements such as pillar candles, faux crystals or even paper flowers for those do-it-yourselfers. has easy kits to get you started.
