Brides are not only sending out recycled-paper invitations but also making a conscious effort to use more local vendors to decrease their wedding’s carbon footprint.
Here are some of the ways that Trilogy Event Design Invitations, a local company, is "green" for its clients:
1. Trilogy Event Design works with digital proofs primarily, houses all information, documents, and contracts electronically.
2. We offer post-consumer waste (PCW) 100% paper which is made of recycled papers produced completely from waste paper. For example, this rustic invitation suite is printed on Kraft PC-100 paper.

3. In addition, Trilogy uses a tree-free alternative paper like 100% cotton paper that we use for letterpress printing. This letterpress invitation is an example of our tree-free alternative paper.

4. Another way to be environmentally conscious is to use a wedding website to communicate your accommodations, registry, and other information. Place a small business card sized notification in your invitations pointing your guests to the website.
