Eco Friendly Wedding Favor Ideas

These eco friendly wedding favor ideas are easy on the earth and your wallet. No need to buy junk that will end up in a landfill for your wedding - and this includes wedding favors!

After all, wedding favors are generally a little token of appreciation that represents you as a couple, so if you are a "green" couple, then your favors should be too!

Twig Colored Pencils - I absolutely love these as wedding favors and place card holders too! Not only are they eco friendly wedding favors, but they are functional too. Be sure to have some recycled paper at the tables that say, "Draw a picture or write a special note to the newlyweds" and have someone collect them at the end of the night. When you read these later on, you'll see how silly the messages get as the night goes on - and as the wine keeps pouring.

I found these natural colored twig pencil bundles from an eBay seller. To make it even cheaper I'd split them up so each guest gets just a few.

For easy tags, buy a paper punch in a shape you like (like my leaf) and punch through some recycled paper! This craft punch was found at a local craft shop several years ago.

Recycle - Create paper towel roll mini-notebooks and use recycled paper!

Donate, Baby! - Yes, perhaps the most eco friendly wedding favor you can have is to not have any at all, instead donate in your guests' names to an environmental non-profit. You can use Charity Navigator to find a reputable organization.

Seed Packet Favors - Purchase organically cultivated seeds for your seed packet favors and/or stick to native plants too. Here are several more seed packet favor ideas for DIY favor projects. Even better, try the Paper Towel Roll Seed Packet Wedding Favors for your recycled packaging!

Edible & Organic - Edible is always good in the world of favors, so why not pick organic versions of your favorite candies, chocolates, coffee or tea?
