Sustainable Events- The NEW way to Throw an Event in Charleston

August 15, 2016

One of the most beautiful components of any event are the flowers. They add such a special touch to an affair, but what happens after the event is over?

That’s where rEvent comes in. rEvent has quickly become one of our favorite options for any event host, and it goes beyond the flowers.  Learn more about this great service below:

rEvent’s service is available to anyone willing to donate reusable event goods, such as flowers and table linens, by simply scheduling an on site collection of your items directly from your event venue. Donors include, but are not limited to: wedding planners, event coordinators, host & hostesses, brides & grooms, venues, florists, grocery stores, hotels, etc. If you would like to donate your reusable event materials, we would love to repurpose & redistribute locally on your behalf!

After pickup, we give your flowers a fresh cut and rearrange into mini #BedsideBouquets.™ We take curating our Bedside Bouquets very seriously as unique individual gifts, each carefully arranged and accompanied with a greeting tag, complete with a hand tied ribbon. We hand deliver the repurposed flower Bedside Bouquets to the charitable organization of your choice from our local list of receiving partners. Any flowers that are no longer fit for reuse are locally composted, returning nutrients to the soil instead of a landfill. Additionally, all nonperishable donated items such as table linens, votives, and custom carpeting are redistributed for efficient reuse within the community to affordable housing initiatives, sewing classes, and arts programs.

For more information or details on how to schedule a pick up please visit rEvents online.
Cru Catering fully supports the mission and idea to create more sustainable events through Charleston.
