go green with keen

The average wedding produces 400- 600 lbs of garbage. Is that alarming to you? It was to me.

I coordinated a wedding where guests left their trash and plastic water bottles all over the place. I also coordinated a wedding where folks searched a park until they located the remnants of a single popped balloon.  I observed both situations, and how they made me feel. 

I'm not the best at recycling and I certainly don't know everything there is to know about being eco-friendly, but I needed to do something to be proactive. I did some research, got educated, and am proud to share Keen Events is Oregon's first Green Certified Wedding Planner. I've made it my mission to do my part to help the 78% of couples looking to include eco-friendly elements in their weddings. From using recycled paper for your invitations and programs, to incorporating local, organic, seasonal food into your menus, there are endless ways to be more earth conscious, even if it is just in one element of your wedding day.
