Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – Eco Friendly Wedding Favor Ideas

The three “R”s of being eco-friendly are reuse, reduce and recycle. How can these three “R”s be incorporated into your wedding favors – its easy with our green wedding favor ideas.

Reduce – when we speak of reduce we mean cutting down on materials which make an impact on our environment. To reduce you may want to purchase eco-friendly wedding favors with little or no packaging. Forget the wedding favor boxes, gift wrap and favor tags. Place wedding favors directly on each place setting without any decorations attached to them. Items such as glass coasters (which can be reused), cork coasters, seeds, trees, place card holders (unlike place card frames which come in boxes), and edible items are good at reducing waste in our environment.

Reuse – can the item you are purchasing for your guest be reused? Is it durable enough to be reused over and over again? Kitchen themed items, wine stoppers, wooden photo frames are all items which can be used over and over again in guests homes. A good rule of thumb is: if you would use it in your home, chances are your guests will use them in their homes as well.

Recycle – items which can be recycled, or which can be recycled into another household use item are good candidates for the recycled category. Seed packets which are packaged in recycled paper make a good choice, as are woven baskets which can be re-used in guests’ homes. If you would like to give candy or another edible item, make sure you package them in bio-degradable materials. Organic and locally produced items also make an impact on our earth by reducing the carbon footprint needed to transport these items.
