This week C103FM talked with Wedding Caterer Orla McAndrew and owner of Bella Bleu Vintage Lucy Ryan

Did you know? 


The average wedding produces 400 lbs of rubbish and 63 tons of CO2, with an estimated 2.5 million weddings per year, that is about 1 billion lbs of trash and as many emissions as approximately 4 people would produce in a year, in just one single day. 


An estimated 1 million tonnes of food waste is generated throughout the food system in Ireland annually. In addition to the lost economic value, this represents a massive waste of resources (land, water, materials), as well as producing associated greenhouse gas emissions.
