Sustainable editorial in Mallorca
2020 has marked a before and an after. This year has not been a small wake-up call. On the contrary, it was a full-blown reality check to tell us that we were not doing things right. It took a pandemic for people to start to reflect. And if the excuse for not doing so was lack of time, 2020 also gave us almost 4 months, forcing us to pause. Pauses are valuable, a powerful resource for reflection. 122. 400 minutes to refocus our lives, our businesses and everything to make the earth a better place.
It is never too late to fight for the sustainability of this planet. Although the current situation is not making things easy for us, couples continue to fall in love and despite the obstacles, they do not give up celebrating the most important day of their lives. Love does not change, but the way we celebrate this great day should undergo a major shift towards finding a balance with the resources of our environment.
Achieving an elegant wedding, where good taste and sophistication are a priority, does not have to be linked to wastefulness or at odds with the cult of the environment.
We must succeed in meeting our needs without compromising the desire of future generations to meet theirs. The trend towards sustainability should be the fruit of all that time that life has forced us to stop.
In general, the world will henceforth be governed by the desire to do things that have the effect of promoting a better place to live.
Weddings with an ecological concept
Imagine for a moment that from now on all weddings on the planet were conducted by the ecological concept. Weddings held during the day to make the most of sunlight, invitations on recycled paper or with elegant Save the Date via mobile phone, dresses made from recycled fabrics.
More and more designers and bridal houses are opting for this type of design. Floral decorations made with natural and recycled elements such as coconut fibre, dried artichokes, palm trees and an endless number of colourful dried flowers that will look great at this type of wedding.
Artificial lighting using candles made with natural waxes, textures such as esparto grass, rattan or linen that are the perfect combination for decoration with vegetable elements, menus with local and organic products, biodegradable cutlery, gifts for your friends and family in which you should bet again on local and seasonal products…
Imagine for a moment the impact on the planet of a whole year of exclusively eco-friendly weddings.
The stop we were forced to make also helped us to realize that, more than ever, we are all the same. This virus does not understand race or social conditions. It affects everyone equally and when it touches you, it doesn’t ask.
This should lead us to commit ourselves to a universal love that knows no colour or race. In the 21st century this should not be a topic of conversation or debate, but given recent events in the world, perhaps we should reflect on it and fight for it. Universal love is pure physics, like the law of gravity, or the law of action-reaction. It should not be a purpose or a goal, but a life choice.
This sustainable editorial in Mallorca has been possible thanks to the collaboration of great professionals who have done it in a totally disinterested way.
