The Green Bride Guide states that the average wedding produces 400 lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2. With an estimated 2.5 million weddings per year, that is about 1 billion lbs of trash and as many emissions as approximately 4 people would produce in a year, in just one single day. Petals for Hope’s mission is to help transform the event and wedding industry to a more sustainable one by creating a streamlined and cost-effective donation process.
Having worked in the event industry, we understand first hand the stress that comes along with planning weddings and events. The last thing we want to do is to make this process more cumbersome than necessary. We get asked all of the time if our process is really this straightforward…and we are so glad that we can reply with confidence that it is! You can rest easy knowing that we will be handling your floral donation with the utmost professionalism, while also not adding any additional stress or coordinating on your end.
