Your standard, run-of-the-mill paper has a larger impact than you think, even when recycled. While many of us have gone virtual to reduce our paper use in much of our daily lives, wedding invitations tend to be the exception. There is no true replica for the beauty and luxurious feeling that comes with sending paper invitations to your guests.
When hosting an eco-luxe wedding, hemp paper invitations are a perfect opportunity to combine luxury quality with your eco-friendly values. Here are 3 excellent reasons to make the switch to hemp paper!
- Have a huge positive environmental impact.
Hemp has a multitude of benefits, including reducing the acres needed to produce each paper, reducing the time to grow, durability and quality, and reduction of deforestation. Hemp paper can actually be recycled up to seven times, whereas paper made from wood can only be recycled up to three times.
- Demonstrate your values and educate your guests!
Hemp paper is a great option to reduce your environmental impact. Sending beautiful hemp paper invitations will inspire and demonstrate to your guests that hemp paper can be gorgeous and unique.
- Work with your calligrapher/stationer to create something unique and beautiful.
Work with your calligrapher and/or stationer to create your dream eco-friendly invitations. If they don’t already have a sustainable paper option for you, you can order paper at this great etsy shop, or find a local supplier in your region! This may be the first time they work with hemp paper, making this another opportunity for spreading awareness and education.
We love hemp paper and hope you consider it for your eco-friendly wedding invitations.
