Our Sustainability Commitments

OUR VOW TO PROTECT THE FUTURE: PLANTING TREES WITH THE NATIONAL TRUST From the moment you say ‘I do’, your journey into married life and everything it brings begins. But sharing those vows at Southdowns Manor means you can contribute to a better future for our planet and the future generations to come. For every wedding we host, we’ll plant a tree. The National Trust scheme remains close to our hearts, and we believe that it’s our moral duty to do everything we can to ensure this beautiful planet can thrive. As an eco-friendly wedding venue that practices sustainability whenever possible, we know that small steps to green living can be the difference between balancing an already fragile ecosystem or suffering the effects of deforestation for many years to come. We Use Eco-Friendly Materials All of our wedding folders are made from eco-friendly paper, enabling us to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills in the UK. Many people don’t know that paper is recyclable up to five times, and if more companies used eco materials, we could drastically reduce carbon emissions. Most importantly, recycling doesn’t mean poor quality. Our paper is high-quality, durable and it saves trees. We Work With Local Businesses We’ll always do our best to keep everything local and reduce our carbon footprint when it comes to our supply chain. Our location means we’re lucky enough to work with some great local businesses that supply us with high-quality produce. From local butchers that practice ethical farming to fresh-tasting seasonal vegetables, we bring the best of the south east.
