A thoughtful menu…more Going Green ideas

Posted by C&G on Monday, April 13, 2009

Menu is always important at a wedding. Many couples have chosen to go vegetarian or organic for their catering to help ease the huge carbon footprint of an event. It turns out that non-local, non-organic food is one of the three largest consumer related causes of environmental damage. The easiest way to combat this is to eat less meat, choose organic foods, and promote sustainable fishing. Research organic caterers, and keep in mind, even caterers who don’t advertise their businesses as “organic” can agree to purchase organic ingredients for your wedding now that organic food is available all over the country. One of our favorite organic caterers in NYC is Cleaver Company. Their cuisine is healthy yet delicious (which at the end of the day is super important!) and they were doing this before it became the “it” thing to do- so they are real pioneers. www.cleaverco.com
