Breckenridge Wedding Planner Plans Her Wedding!: Recycling
Posted by elizabeth waldmann on April 25th, 2014
When choosing a wedding venue, it was very important to Wes and I that the venue we chose, have some of the same values we find important. Before booking with Chipeta Solar Springs Resort and Spa, we asked them about their ‘green’ practices. They do not sell plastic water bottles in their rooms, they recycle (huge), they use as many local and organic products as possible, they use fractionated coconut oil and essential oils for their spa treatments and they do not use pesticides on their property! After hearing this, we went ahead and booked our wedding. In addition to these, you can also ask if your venue composts waste. The wedding venues we work at all the time in Keystone are huge advocates of this and I love it! Not only does the food left on plates go somewhere good instead of in a landfill, it helps grow future flowers. Call me what you will but this really makes me smile! 🙂
What a great idea! I hear brides always say that want a ‘green’ wedding (or as close as possible). It is a great thing to shoot for especially if you are already living your life with little toxins and as natural as possible.
