THE FACTS: The average wedding produces 400-500lbs of garbage (based on an estimated 2 million weddings per year).
That is more than 1 BILLION TONS OF TRASH.
Plus 66 tons of CO2. In just one day a wedding produces the equivalent emissions 4-5 people would in an entire year.
STATIONARY + FAVOURS
Choose all-natural wedding favours and paper products made from either recycled material or seed paper. Also try to reduce the amount of printed pieces and packaging. Urban Hall has conscientious recycling and composting protocols in place.
FOOD + BEVERAGES
We are pleased to offer in-season local and/or organic food options for your menu. This reduces emissions caused by transportation and support local farmers. For bar service, we offer options from many of the fabulous local breweries and wineries in our area.
TRANSPORTATION + VENUE
Arrange shuttles or car pools for your guests. We offer free parking and are close to Highway 2 and the 401.
Urban Hall provides a lovely venue to have your ceremony and reception all in one place, all year round!
We are close to a number of hotels, B & B's and inns.
Use solar lights or soy candles.
Urban Hall uses energy efficient LED lighting. We offer a great selection of decor items for you to rent (also saves you money, time and space!). Rent our reusable chalkboard signage in lieu of programs and printed menus. We love vintage and up-cycled decor. RENTALS
Choose a local florist, opt for native seasonal flowers or potted plants and avoid tossing them right after the event by finding ways to preserve, reuse them or give them away to your guests as gifts. Reuse your ceremony arrangements at the reception or have it all in one place (hint hint Urban Hall) and save yourself time and money!
