Well hello there, with only 4 sleeps now until the big day I am getting...
Hathersage Rd, Manchester M13 0FE
The Ethical Wedding Show is back in Manchester on October 24th 2021 (please note this is postponed from Spring 2021) at Victoria Baths. It is a show for ethically minded couples who love the planet as well as each other.
Every supplier has been handpicked for The Ethical Wedding Show, not just for their gorgeous product and impeccable service, but because they too care about the planet.
WHY THE ETHICAL WEDDING SHOW?
Being ethically minded in your life choices and therefore your wedding choices is one of our core values and always has been. Let’s face it, choosing vintage which is where we began, is a great way to be eco-friendly, cut down your carbon footprint and recycle (and look good too!). We know that our couples love the planet as well as each other so want to have a positive impact with their spend for their big day. They don’t want single use plastic. They want to know that their venue follows good practices with their recycling and supports local businesses. They don’t want a load of tat from China.
HOW ETHICAL WILL THE SHOW BE?
We are firm believers that a million people embracing being ethical imperfectly is better than a few people doing it perfectly. Therefore we have designed a 5 point criteria for our businesses with every one involved having to meet at least 3. This therefore means they may be less good at one aspect – but overall they are making a difference. And want to.
We could have called it The Ethical-ish Wedding Show. or the Ethically Minded Wedding Show. But that gets a bit wordy so instead we promise that everyone involved is doing their bit.
The 5 points are:
SUPPORTING LOCAL – to bring down their carbon footprint, to support communities and small businesses here in the UK.
NO SINGLE USE PLASTIC – reducing plastic use overall and cutting out single use plastic
BEST RECYCLING PRACTICES – using recycled materials, and recycling afterwards
CARING FOR WILDLIFE – adding a large vegan choice, not using chemicals that harm nature, and generally loving the planet
SUPPORTING OTHER ECO INITIATIVES – supporting charities, reducing waste, donating after the day, excellent working practices, hand making items that last forever…..
