Eco-friendly and sustainable wedding invitations (and save the dates) are a great way to kick off your conscious wedding planning. Let your guests know you want to celebrate your love with some love for the planet. Here are four eco-friendly wedding invitation brands that are serious about sustainability and design. These brands have other wedding paper goods and stationery products as well which is great. For the simplicity of this post I’m just chatting wedding invites, but definitely check out their eco-friendly thank you notes, menus, save the dates, and all the other paper products you might need!
1) Paper Culture: Sustainable Stationery Meets Modern Design
Paper Culture matches modern design with sustainability through their beautiful wedding invites, save the dates, & stationery. Paper Culture’s cards are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper which means no trees are cut down in the process. AND each order plants a tree. Through Paper Culture’s partnerships with organizations such as the Arbor Day Foundation, Friends of the Urban Forest, Our City Forest, and Trees for the Future they are able to identify where trees will be most impactful and plant trees where they are needed.
2) Botanical PaperWorks: Plantable Wedding Invitations
Botanical PaperWorks crafts unique invitations on their innovative eco-friendly seed paper. Botanical PaperWorks is working to reduce waste and spread beauty through their biodegradable seed paper made from post-consumer material. After planted and cared for, your sustainable wedding invite will grow into wildflowers or herbs. Botanical PaperWorks even goes the extra mile to collect post-consumer waste from businesses and schools in their area and use the local waste as the basis for their eco-friendly, plantable seed paper. Through this collection, Botanical PaperWorks saves the local landfill 10 tons of paper per year. Amazing work!
3) ForeverFiances: Eco-Chic Wedding Stationery
