Being An Ethical Bride: Sustainable Stationery

Being An Ethical Bride: Sustainable Stationery | British wedding blog - Bride and Tonic

This month’s Ethical Bride post is all about the wedding stationery. I have always had a soft spot for anything stationery related – from those early days deciding which pencil case to go back to school with, to funky uni notepad days and even now I have to get my pretty paper diary fix! So when planning my own wedding I was in stationery heaven. We decided to make our own invitations to save costs and also to try and be a bit more sustainable as we knew where all of our recycled paper, card and envelopes came from and we also wanted to get crafty! But even if handmade isn’t for you, we have plenty of ideas to help you on your way to finding sustainable wedding stationery.

Being An Ethical Bride: Plastic Free July – DIY Wedding Style!

Being An Ethical Bride: Plastic Free July - DIY Wedding Style! | British wedding blog - Bride and TonicThis month is all about Plastic Free July and ditching single use plastics – from the plastic bag that is used for an average 5 minutes, to the plastic straw, coffee cup and water bottle. We are totally on board this July and are already reaching for our stainless steel water bottles and canvas bags!

The big problem with plastic is that is is designed to last forever. Yes thats right forever, and when you consider how much single use plastic we use, it poses the question…where does it all end up?? Every single bit of plastic every produced still exists, and even though it breaks up it does not break down. It may get recycled but most plastic ends up in landfill or makes it way downstream to the oceans. Scientists actually predict that by 2050 there will be more tonnes of plastic in the ocean than tonnes of fish.

So thinking weddings, and particularly DIY weddings, how can you make your own a plastic free affair? We’ve got some ideas below and plenty more here on our Ethical Bride decorations post. Read on plastic free warriors!
