Did you know the average wedding is responsible for emitting approximately 60 tonnes of carbon dioxide which is the equivalent of burning 65,000 pounds of coal?
If you think this is a problem, you’re not alone.
The Victoria-based video production company, Paper Heart Films is set to premiere a seven-part documentary series that speaks with over 30 wedding vendors across Vancouver Island.
The series explores the areas in which weddings contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
From food and drink imports to flights and everything in between, Sustainably Wed places a spotlight on the best practices to help make weddings more sustainable.
“We kept hearing from our clients that they wanted to have a more sustainable wedding but just didn’t know where to start,” says Sustainably Wed host and producer Chelsea Kanstrup.
“We hope this series will help people across the industry plan and host more sustainable events.”
The first episode of the series will premiere on YouTube today with the remaining six episodes airing each Wednesday until December 26th.
