Welcome to another #MotherEarthMonday ๐ŸŒŽSingle-use plastic is exponentially piling up in our landfills & oceans. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish! Only 10% of all plastic gets recycled. Plastic pollution consumed by sea life ends up in our bodies; it has increased rates of infertility & cancer. Plastic also releases greenhouse gases, in addition to the carbon emissions it takes to produce it (plastic is petroleum-based.)โ € ---โ € Decreasing our single-use plastic consumption is only a small inconvenience to the damage done otherwise. All the plastic youโ€™ve EVER used is STILL somewhere on this earth today.โ € ---โ € It's easy to take it one step at a time. Start with a reusable straw or a cup. Then little by little we learn to become conscientious consumers.โ € ---โ € Iโ€™ve started taking Tupperware to restaurants for takeout and my next goal is to shop more often at farmers markets to buy unpackaged foods! What small things have you incorporated into your life to decrease plastic waste? Iโ€™d love recommendations!โ € ---โ € Inspirational Instagram handles to follow: @easyecotips @activistickers @slowingdowntozero @zero.waste.collective โ € ---โ € Photography: @darcybenincosaโ € Styling: @emma_Natterโ € โ €

A closeup of all the textures going on. First, letterpressed by @copperwillowps. Then hand-painted watercolor wash. I used a combination of dabbing and salt to create an organic concrete-like texture. Finally, a small bit of gold foiled glued on for some shine โœจโ € ---โ € #handmadeinvitations #owlpostcalligraphy #customsavethedates #weddingdetails #weddingpaper #savethedatedesigns #handpaintedinvitations

Do you know what you want your legacy to be? ๐Ÿค” As tragedies have been overwhelming me this past week, Iโ€™ve been thinking about what I can do. Iโ€™ve been reassessing my business goals to include what I want my legacy to beโ€”being a fighter and a protector for my family & friends, which ultimately means for the Earth. ๐ŸŒŽ California continues to burn and so does my passion to fight back. So todayโ€™s #MotherEarthMondays is about taking a step back to look at what we can all do to work towards our dream legacy. Iโ€™m restructuring my business to give back to the environment and be more eco-friendly. ๐ŸŒฑ Currently all my packaging is recycled or bought from @ecoenclose and I always choose to offset carbon for all my UPS deliveries. That was a start, but I want to do more! ๐Ÿ’ช I discovered @ecosia which is a #SearchEngine that uses its revenue to plant trees! I made it my default search engine via a #GoogleChromeExtension and it was SO EASY! You can even download the mobile app to use it on your phone! Iโ€™m also figuring out a way to plant a tree for every one of my clients ๐ŸŒฒ . I believe in what I do because I believe I give my couples happiness and once in a lifetime experience which is what life is all about. I think i just need to say thank you to what makes my business possible which is why I am committed to being more #ecofriendly ๐Ÿ’š

โฐ Today is voting day for the midterm elections in America! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Your vote is the single most important way to make an impact! If you read my last 2 posts you'll know that I am fighting for EVERYONE'S future on this planet! ๐ŸŒŽ I LOVE YOU ALL! โค #VoteForChange #VoteForEarth

I am so humbled by all of you who responded to my post yesterday. My confidence in humanity has increased โค and I am encouraged to keep speaking up ๐Ÿ™Œ. People from all over the country and all walks of life were telling me they understand that #GlobalWarming will drastically affect them and their kids in ๐Ÿ‘‰OUR lifetime!๐Ÿ‘ˆ and that #RenewableEnergy ๐ŸŒฌโ˜€ is our #1 priority in fighting it! You don't have to worry about me flooding your feed, but I am going to try my best to do #MotherEarthMondays to help inform you about ways we can help reduce our carbon footprint. If you feel like this will be imposing on your feed I respect your right to unfollow me and wish you all the best โค A reminder that your vote tomorrow is a way for you to #ShowUpForEarth. Voting for the environment is a vote for humanity๐Ÿ‘ซ, not a political party. California, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and New Mexico all have initiatives on the ballot that can combat #GlobalWarming ๐Ÿ’ช If you want to comment or direct message me about something on your ballot you need info on, please do! #VoteForChange #VoteforRenewableEnergy #VoteForHumanity

I am writing this with shaking hands and tears in my eyes because I am afraid. But I am also writing with an open heart because I know you all are really good people. โคWhat I'm about to say is due to my belief that no matter what your politics are, caring about earth is not a political issue, it is a HUMAN issue. Both conservatives and liberals alike have fought for this issue because it benefits all of us. I want to hold your children and tell them Iโ€™m going to fight for them. ๐Ÿ’ชSo if you choose to read this, thank you from the bottom of my heart.โคโ € โ € I made a quick decision earlier today to make a post about voting for #GreenEnergy thinking that maybe I didn't have to address why I was going to start talking about itโ€” but I was wrong. So here I am. โ € โ € Ever since the IPCC report came out last month about how #GlobalWarming will put Earth into ๐Ÿ”ฅcrisis by 2040 ๐Ÿ”ฅif we don't reduce carbon emissions VERY quickly, I have had endless sleepless nights about what I should be doing to save OUR home, OUR planet. To give OUR kids their futures back. โ€œThe greatest danger to our future is apathy.โ€ Since then I have been very vocal on my personal social media accounts. โ € โ € When it came to talking about it in my business, I was SO scared it made me feel sick.๐Ÿ˜– But I had to ask if I could live with myself if I didn't say anything, and the answer is "no." So here I go...๐Ÿ™โ € โ € We are the ๐Ÿ‘‰LAST generation๐Ÿ‘ˆ who can lower carbon emissions in time to save earth. The window closes in OUR lifetime. We have ONLY 10 YEARS to limit climate change catastrophe. This kind of change is unprecedented but STILL DOABLE.โ € โ € [continued in comments below ๐Ÿ‘‡]โ € โ €

Remember that voting day is coming up and if you still need to do your research, do it today! Vote for people and policies who represent the change you want to see! For me, itโ€™s people and policies that will push us toward #GreenEnergy ๐ŸŒŽ Washington has a carbon tax on the ballot this election which is AMAZING ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’™ what are you most passionate about? ---โ € Photography @thismodernromance | Stylist @hello.tea | Floral Design @delphinium_floral | Dress @clairepettibone | Purple Dress @mariakorovilas | Hair & Makeup @muajanet | Cake @jasmineraecakes | Headpieces and Veil @ericaelizabethprettythings | Invitations @owlpostcalligraphy | Ring @littlebirdtoldyou | Table Rental @shvintage | Tabletop @theark_ โ € ---โ € #weddingcake #fineartwedding #dayofdetails #weddingdaydetails #organicwedding

My husband and I have been trying to become vegetarian in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. ๐Ÿฅ• Any other vegetarians or vegans out there with tips or recipes? My biggest challenge is avoiding Tree Nuts (which I'm allergic to) with vegan food which makes me feel like I can't become vegan. But I'm sure that's just a problem I have at restaurants specifically and I just need a kick in the butt to learn how to cook more ๐Ÿ˜… #savemotherearth
