The Apurva Kempinski Bali has teamed up with like-minded partners to present the Sustainable Wedding Package, each bringing its own expertise to help plan the perfect wedding with the earth in mind.
Designmill makes the decorations from recycled paper, while using wooden chairs, potted plants, hanging natural fabric and printed customised motifs. Ethical fashion SukkhaCitta creates the wedding dress, with Puri Ata and Taga Woodcraft providing its locally handmade crafts as a sustainable wedding gift.
For food and beverage, Tanamera Coffee, Plaga Farm and Balian Water will work alongside to plan the menu, while remaining committed to respecting the ecosystem and communities that they work with.
Vincent Guironnet, general manager, The Apurva Kempinski Bali, shared: “By introducing new initiatives, we strongly believe that we can inspire people to incorporate sustainability into all aspects of their daily lives. This becomes even greater when partners come together, generating new ways of thinking, and making a difference.”
Other efforts by the resort include replacing single-use plastic with biodegradable products, and using the rooftop space to grow greens for a more sustainable kitchen. Other projects include the ‘Linens for Life’ programme, which provides free face masks made from clean and hygienic discarded hotel linen to people in the local community who are in need; and the ‘Soap for Hope’ programme that provides at-risk people with access to soap, by cutting and disinfecting the resort’s soap to form new soap bars.
