We asked Pippa O'Neill of Tie the Knot Catering how to make a wedding day sustainable when it comes to the wedding breakfast. Read on to find out what she had to say...
This should be straightforward as well as fun. Just consider our top three tips when you’re planning:
Use local: Choosing a caterer local to your venue is an effective way of keeping sustainability at the forefront. Not only will this reduce the mileage of their back and forths, it will also decrease the mileage of their staff, who likely also live locally.
Ask about local produce: Caterers invested in championing local produce are reducing their carbon footprint and helping their local economy to flourish, both important commitments to sustainable working. Ask your caterers to also use seasonal fruits and vegetables for a delicious triple sustainability hit.
Can you reduce your meat intake? Opting to serve your guests a vegetarian or vegan starter, or even making your menu fully vegan, will go a long way towards reducing the carbon footprint of your day. We have an incredible new vegan menu catering for your every need with absolutely no compromise on quality or quantity.
