As the owner of Perrier Planning, an eco-friendly wedding and event planning company, I live a pretty sustainable lifestyle. I am my brand, and as I teach my clients ways to lower their carbon footprint, I also practice those things in my own life. I drive a hybrid car, buy mostly organic foods, support local businesses, have a bamboo toothbrush and always bring my reusable cup when I go out for coffee.
