There are nearly 2.5 million couples getting married in the United States each year (Harrison, 2008, pg. xi). That breaks down to more than 6,300 weddings in a single day. The average wedding in the United States “produces 63 tones of CO2 and 400-600 pounds of trash” and therefore, newlyweds are creating over 3,500,000 pounds of trash in a single at their weddings (Harrison, 2009, ¶ 2)! The green movement is on the rise and wedding industry needs to implement it to meet new demands. In order to do people need to be informed of the importance, benefits and savings of adopting a green wedding and implementing it into their lives. Earthy Bride is an eco-friendly resource online available committed to keeping the most up-to-date, useful tools available for those planning practical, stylish, eco-friendly weddings—and happily-ever-after too.
