In a world of melting ice caps, bleached coral reefs and mass pollution most of us are becoming increasingly environmentally aware and making more environmentally conscious decisions. We recycle and reduce our waste, we use water saving devices and we chastise those who don't.
However, there is still a lot to do and much room for improvement in our daily lives. Our celebrations, parties and weddings is an area I know well and wow, there is room for improvement. Your first thought is probably "yeah I know, plastic plates, cups, and cutlery", but the problems go much deeper.
Every culture needs to enjoy their celebrations and by simply informing yourself you can make yours both fantastic and environmentally conscious
