Sustainability means more than just using free-range eggs. It’s a conscious effort to improve sustainability across the entire process of making a wedding cake. I want you to enjoy your wedding cake, safe in the knowledge that it’s been made as sustainably as possible.
I regularly review sustainability across 6 stages of my business – raw materials, process, decoration, packaging, delivery, and waste (outer circle).
Within those areas, I want to make sure that I source materials responsibly, use materials and resources efficiently, reduce use of undesirable materials and reduce any potentially detrimental aspects, reuse and repurpose materials and packaging, recycle what I can, repair where possible and return something back to Earth or its inhabitants (inner circle).
An important part of sustainability is transparency so below you will find more detail on each aspect of my business. If you want to understand the sustainability principles that guide my business more generally, you can find them in my story.
If you’re thinking about planning your own eco friendly wedding, then the centre of my sustainability diagram is a great place to start. You can use the list to compare suppliers and/or compare your options (e.g. favours as place settings vs. individually bagged gifts). If you’re completely new to eco friendly weddings, then I’d also recommend reading this blog post on the eco friendly wedding words to look out for. One of the Love from Lila principles is that sustainability enhances luxury, it does not compromise it. If you order a Love from Lila cake, luxury and sustainability work together to give you the best wedding cake possible. That’s a bonus if you aren’t planning an eco friendly wedding, and essential if you are!
