Offset the Carbon Footprint of Your Wedding With Aether* This program ended on 12/31/21, but we will be launching it again soon. Sign up for our newsletter HERE to stay informed about when we bring back our Wedding Offset program."
When you think about a commitment ceremony or a wedding day, what do you think of? If you're like most people, you think about the love shared between two partners and the family and friends who are there to support them. You think of a future together that is bright and beautiful, fueled by optimism and excitement. You think of the legacy you will have as partners together in this world and the bigger love that extends from your relationship out into everything around you. This day isn't the culmination of something - it's the exhilarating start of a shared life together.
A question many couples ask themselves when contemplating the planning of such a special day is: "As we take your first steps in the world as a married couple, what is the imprint we want to leave on the planet?" The rise in eco-friendly and green weddings shows just how much people combine the love of each other with the love of the Earth.
However, there can still be a lot of complicated choices to make. Finding the right balance between sustainability versus the impact of guest travel, choosing the right venue and accommodations, and limiting excess energy use and waste can be challenging, especially during an already stressful time.
That's why Aether is offering to offset the carbon footprint of your wedding day or commitment ceremony.
We believe that the sole focus of your special day should be on the celebration of love and togetherness, rather than the stress that we all know can often come with making the "right" eco-friendly choice. We, of course, want you to make the green choices for yourself that bring your hearts joy, so leave the worry about climate change and carbon emissions to us. That way, you can focus on nurturing your love while knowing you're nurturing the planet just as much.
Aether Diamonds is proud to be the first jewelry brand ever to offset the carbon footprints of customers' weddings. As the most sustainable diamond jewelry brand in the world, we believe we are perfectly suited to be the leader in helping couples in love leave a positive impact on the planet in a way that has never been done before!
How does this make my wedding carbon neutral?The average carbon footprint of a wedding in the U.S. is 63 metric tonnes of CO2 - the equivalent of 4 years of the average person's annual carbon footprint. This amount includes all the cumulative fossil fuels and emissions from elements the events food, drinks, venue, lodging, air travel, ground transportation, clothes, and energy. This 63 tonnes is the amount that Aether will offset for each qualifying purchase, making your wedding day truly carbon neutral.
To source these carbon offsets, Aether is working with Pachama. Pachama's mission is to restore nature through forest restoration, ecosystem preservation, and offering a carbon marketplace with real impact. We're proud to have them as a brand partner on this initiative - not only do they provide some of the highest quality carbon offsets available on the market, their focus allows us to show an even bigger love for the planet.
Because Aether already removes pollution from the atmosphere to create our diamonds, the offsets for the wedding program will be committed to rainforest preservation in order to have a more diverse global impact.
The wedding offsets will be in addition to the positive impact that Aether already provides to customers through jewelry purchase alone. Customers' carbon footprints are already offset by 1.25 years for every carat of diamond we sell. That means that in combination with the wedding program, our customers will not only offset their carbon footprint for their weddings, but also their first years together as partners.
What is a qualifying purchase?This program will run for a limited time through 12/31/21, and for each purchase of $4,000, Aether will help our customers ensure they can celebrate their special day without an impact to the environment.
