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. Paper-Source.com has easy kits to get you started.
