How Donations From Your Wedding Can Benefit the Climate

You’ve had your big day, and everything was just perfect. From the music to the cake, to the dress, to the decorations, everything turned out exactly how you wanted it to. But now what do you do with all the décor, the flower vases, the extra favors, the bridesmaids’ dresses, and your wedding gown? Sure, you could put it all in storage in your attic or throw it all away. But if you live in the Atlanta, Georgia, area, there’s a better use: Donate your wedding dress and décor to American Kidney Services, Inc.

Donate to Charity to Benefit the Environment

The more stuff you can keep out of landfills, the better the environment is going to feel. We’re running out of landfill space, as people in the U.S. create almost five pounds per day of municipal solid waste. Some of that gets recycled, but the vast majority goes into landfills. And landfills are more of a burden on the ozone layer than carbon dioxide because they create greenhouse gases as things decompose.

When you donate to charity, you’re keeping all that wedding décor and such out of the landfills, reducing your carbon footprint. Which is a good thing for you and everyone who comes after you. Donating your wedding dress has the bonus of letting another bride feel as amazing on her wedding day as you did on yours.
