And last but not least one of the easiest and most impactful ways you can go green at your wedding- healthy locally grown food and beverages – this choice is an especially easy endeavor in San Diego where we have so much local produce and great wineries! Food and Beverage The average American meal travels 1,500 miles. No matter how you choose to design your menu, using in-season local and/or organic foods will decrease the carbon footprint of your meal while supporting the local economy. Organic caterers and green restaurants create menus bursting with fresh, seasonal foods, but any company you choose should be able to work with you to add seasonal and/or organic elements where possible. When available, providing wine, beer, and other beverages made in the area adds some local flavor.
