In honor of today’s festivities, I’d like to share how much I admire the royal family’s commitment to reduce their impact on the environment. As world leaders, their actions send a message, and on this day of celebration, I am expressing my gratitude and admiration of their efforts.
A green wedding
In lieu of gifts, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge requested charitable donations. How lovely. Westminster Abbey was decorated with local greenery, growing in planters. The wedding feast will consist of locally sourced, organic foods, which are kind to their bodies and the planet.
The royal family
Other members of the royal family make attempts to reduce their impact on the planet too.The Queen converted her Bentleys to run on biofuel. Biofuels can come from new plants, or from kitchen scraps, so this was a considerate choice. Prince Charles was named Hero of the Environment by Time magazine in 2007.
