Say 'I Do' to the Environment! 👰‍♀️🤍🤵🌍


Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but it's also an opportunity to make meaningful choices that align with your values. There are many ways to reduce your environmental impact and make a positive contribution to the community. Here are 5 tips to help you get started:


    1. Choose an eco-friendly venue: 
      Look for venues that prioritize sustainability, such as hotels and event spaces that offer eco-friendly amenities and serve sustainable food and drinks. Choose plant-based, locally-sourced, and organic food and drinks to reduce your carbon footprint and support sustainable agriculture. Buffet-style meals may seem like a convenient option, but they often result in a lot of food waste. Instead, opt for plated meals that can be portioned out ahead of time to reduce the amount of food that goes uneaten.

    2. Opting for sustainable decor:
      Instead of using mass-produced decorations that can be harmful to the environment, consider choosing upcycled or rented decor. You could also consider outdoor spaces like parks or gardens 🏞️, which can provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding while also minimizing your carbon footprint.

  1. Consider wearing a vintage wedding gown
    Not only is this option environmentally friendly, but it can also add a unique and timeless touch to your wedding day. You can find vintage wedding dresses at secondhand shops, vintage boutiques, or even online marketplaces. And if you have a family member or friend who has a wedding dress that they no longer need, consider asking if you can borrow or upcycle it to create your own special wedding gown.

  2. Give sustainable gifts:
    Show your guests you care about them and the planet by giving sustainable gifts like eco-friendly products or experiences. There are a number of sustainable and eco-friendly businesses in Hong Kong that offer a range of products, from reusable water bottles to handmade skincare products. Alternatively, you could consider making a donation to an environmental charity in honor of your guests.

  3. Slowood Wedding Vouchers:
    As an environmentally conscious company, we offer wedding vouchers as the perfect way to thank your friends and family with a meaningful and eco-friendly gift for joining your special day. 


Don't forget that by making small choices, you can make a significant impact on the environment and your community.
