    Episode four: Getting your ethical business found by couples

    Episode four: Getting your ethical business found by couples

    So you have done all of the hard work setting up your eco wedding business, but how do you get found by couples? Today I chat with Bethan from Little Green Book Events, a Wedding Supplier Directory with a difference. Little Green Book only lists ethical, sustainable businesses that qualify through at least one of 4 strict criteria.

    Bethan started Little Green Book after working in the events  industry and seeing first hand the waste produced by large weddings and conferences and then after trying to plan more environmentally friendly events and realising how difficult it was to find quality ethical suppliers for a wedding or event.

    Today we chat about how the industry is beginning to change for the better and how you can get your business seen by couples planning a more eco friendly wedding.
