green wedding ideas & green events: Ethical jewels

green wedding ideas & green events: Ethical jewels | Green Weddings | Scoop.it
Shionagh Goold's insight:

When choosing your engagement and wedding rings, it's worth understanding how the metal and gems were mined and handled before you invest in an industry that is frighteningly unethical. Read on for more information, but the best solution to this problem is sourcing second hand rings or diamonds. If the design is not to your specifications find a good jeweler who will use the existing gold or silver and gems to re-design them.

Shionagh Goold's insight:

Gone are the days of wasteful disposable cameras being placed on each table at the reception for guests to take photos.

green wedding ideas & green events: Large Functions in Australia Contribute to 1.3 billion Tonnes of Food Wasted Each Year!

green wedding ideas & green events: Large Functions in Australia Contribute to 1.3 billion Tonnes of Food Wasted Each Year! | Green Weddings | Scoop.it
Shionagh Goold's insight:

An Australian wedding calls for large-scale preparation of food with lavish menus being the order of the day, which can also result in large amounts of food wastage. When planning large scale events, whether it be for a wedding, private function or corporate event, choose a restaurant, function centre or venue that considers food waste, and reduces it where possible.

green wedding ideas & green events: Checklist for Catering an Eco-Friendly Green Event | Green Weddings | Scoop.it
Shionagh Goold's insight:

Waste management is one of the key components of a Green Event. One of the major threats to the environment is the amount of waste produced. Australia is the second highest producer of waste per capita after the United States, sending 18 million tonnes to landfill per annum. When food is wasted, the energy and water used in producing the food is also wasted.
