Supporting charities has always been important to my family.
From sponsored swims when I was a child, sitting on local committees and volunteering as an adult, to now cheering my daughters on as they get involved in various fundraisers at school.
When starting my business, I knew that giving back was going to be deeply ingrained into the way Ellie & Liv was run. Sustainability is a core value of mine, so I wanted to find ways of giving back to the environment in my work and help you if you are planning an eco wedding.
Planting trees for you and your wedding
With Ellie and Liv, your wedding will continue to give back to our environment for many years, helping our fight against climate change and the wellness of future generations.
The National Trust have pledged to plant 20 million trees by the year 2030, and I’m delighted to be supporting them in this important endeavour. With every full wedding stationery suite ordered from Ellie and Liv, I will plant and dedicate a tree in honour of your wedding with the National Trust. Your wedding will help the future of our woodlands, becoming a living memory that will help climate change, provide new habitats for our wildlife and create a place for future generations to enjoy.
The National Trust already look after 12 million trees, but since 1970, 41% of all woodland species has been in decline. It is important to replenish these trees, along with planting new trees around the UK to help with the reduction of emissions in our environment. Just 1 single tree can remove 1 tonne of carbon from our air over just 40 years of its life.
How else your wedding will give back…
Carbon Offsetting Ellie and Liv
Along with gifting trees with your wedding stationery, I aim to further reduce Ellie and Liv’s carbon footprint by joining Ecologi to become a carbon positive business. Ecologi plants trees each month and helps to finance carbon reduction projects around the world.
