Tiruchi: Every grand wedding leaves a truckload of garbage, such as discarded bottles, cups, and food. It all starts with an invitation. Not knowing what to do with the invitation card, many of us throw it in the trash. In order to eliminate this waste, a couple from Tiruchi came up with an environmentally friendly idea.

In order to reduce the carbon footprint of the wedding, Manoj Dharmar and Divya decided to "plant" their invitation with seeds. It comes with a description that says: This is a piece of seed paper. To express your love for us, fold and bury it with dreams. Love will bloom one day.

Although most of the invitations have the name or verse of the gods written on them, their invitations begin with "Nature" and there are pictures of Uyyakondan Canal and environmental fighter G Nammalvar next to them.

"I have developed the habit of not accepting invitations because it will be wasted. Some people might say that you can send electronic invitations and save paper. However, I think this is too impersonal. Therefore, in order to have the best of both worlds, we decided on these seeds. Invitation," Manoj said.

Since Tiruchy does not have such invitation letters, Manoj has ordered them from Uttar Pradesh. "They are the seeds of flowers and will benefit many insects and bees sitting on the flowers," he added.

In addition to the "green" invitation, the couple also eliminated plastic bottles and cups from the wedding by ordering glasses and cups made of bagasse. All items to be served on plastic are removed from the menu.

They also plan to plant 1,000 saplings in the Miyawaki Forest in Irungalur.

Manoj has been an environmental activist for six years. He is also a volunteer for Uyyakondan citizens and runs Shine Treechy, an environmental NGO.
