Because our planet won't enjoy our wedding as much as we all will, we hope you'll support this organization which will help reduce the carbon footprint of our wedding.
What is a carbon footprint you ask?
Well, a carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. In particular, this means climate change and that very scary word: Global warming. Global warming is already causing crop failures, severe heatwaves, and flooding from extreme weather conditions in numerous countries, including the US. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc.
And when you consider the toll our parachuting into our ceremony from a helicopter will have on our environment (just you wait), you'll see why it's important to donate to this great cause.
