Excellent points! I have had a similar list made of ethical things we value in our relationship and that we did not want broken just because its a wedding 🙂

We did try to do as much as we could.

We used recycled paper and envelopes and didnt do RSVP cards. Just two pieces to the invite.

We used fabric Out of Town bags that are reuseable (that were cheaper than paper bags!)

No programs (we did a large chalkboard)

I do have a “certified conflict free” diamond, for whatever that is worth.

We did a donation instead of favors.

I sold my wedding dress and other items I purchased for decor.

I reused items from friends weddings (like baskets, card boxes, garter, etc)

We did try to reduce consumption as much as possible for something that is normally very consumption and extravagent based event. I am sure, however, there was a ton of waste. We just tried to reduce it.
