1. You’ll be helping the environment

Eco-friendly wedding favours are made from sustainable materials or recycled materials. This means that they have a lower impact on the environment than traditional wedding favours. Traditional wedding favours often come with excess packaging, and will be certain to end up in landfill. 

Instead, choose from a wedding favour like soy wax candles packaged in recyclable tins that can be lit and enjoyed long after your wedding day. Beware that not all candles are created equally, and there are a few considerations to bear in mind when it comes to eco-friendly scents.
