“To a layperson, a green wedding can be defined as an event that is mindful of the impact it has on the environment and therefore on that minimizes, to a large extent , the damage caused to the environment,” says AN eco friendly wedding planner.
Though all this may start with a sort of short awareness drive but such e-commerce companies can collaborate with district administration, panchayat authorities and socio-cultural and religious outfits for extending the reach of eco friendly marriages. “Wedding ceremonies in Kerala are all set to become ‘green’, with the state government coming out with a green protocol to make the auspicious occasions more nature-friendly.” Under such protocols inspections have been conducted at the convention centres, marriage halls, hotels and other venues of the marriage ceremony and certain actions have been taken if the protocol was found to be violated.
Apart from using eco-friendly food products, one can use eco-friendly bags like paper bags, jute bags, cotton bags to give away the return gifts at the end of the celebration. Such ecological weddings that makes almost a $40 billion industry can make a great mark in building a clean environment! It’s not just about the bride and groom anymore!! Why now you become the next couple to incorporate green mindset into your wedding and set an example to raise some awareness to save environment among your friends and family!
