It’s a bit of a challenge to get approved as a green vendor, since what I sell is a service rather than physical products. So I was very flattered and proud of being approved for the Green Wedding Directory! Because of my green lifestyle and commitment to environmentally sensitive decision making, the folks at the Green Bride Guide granted me a 1 leaf rating and approved my application! Here’s my press release…
For Immediate Release: Jon Bassinger-Flores, Los Angeles Wedding Officiant, is approved as a Green Bride Guide green wedding vendor
Los Angeles, Califoria August 12, 2010 – Rev. Jon Bassinger-Flores, Los Angeles wedding officiant, has been selected by the Green Bride Guide, the
#1 green wedding website, for inclusion in their Green Wedding Directory.
The Green Bride Guide is the most comprehensive and credible green wedding
resource online. The Directory is like a Yellow Pages for green weddings that
provides a centralized resource of green wedding vendors, searchable by
This year, almost 50% of couples are looking to include green elements in their
events, and 85% are concerned about greenwashing, the passing off of non-
green companies as eco-friendly. To address these concerns, the Green Bride
Guide screens all vendors in the directory and displays their green practices in
their profiles. Los Angeles wedding officiant Jon Bassinger-Flores received a one leaf rating from the Green Bride Guide.
Ordained in 2007, Rev. Jon Bassinger-Flores is a lifelong fan of weddings and is happy to now be serving couples in and around Los Angeles as a wedding officiant. Rev. Jon strives to maintain a green lifestyle and business practices, and appreciates the efforts of his green couples who are also committed to reducing the environmental impact of their weddings.
“I love weddings, and I’m very concerned about my impact on the planet, so I’m thrilled to be recognized as a green wedding vendor,” said Rev. Jon. “A wedding officiant is a service vendor, not a goods vendor, so I was really happy when my business choices and practices allowed me to be approved by the Green Bride Guide.”
“When my husband Barry and I were planning our wedding in 2006-07, we were
surprised by how little information was available to help us make eco-friendly
choices. That’s why I’m excited to be able to offer couple the Green Bride Guide
Directory,” said founder and CEO Kate Harrison. “By including vendors like wedding officiant Rev. Jon, couples will know that they are working with vetted green vendors who truly value the environment. Since more than 50% of the wedding budget is spent at the local level, the Directory is an essential tool for couples looking to support the local green economy.”
