Sponsor Spotlight: Collective Resource

Collective Resource is Wedtoberfest’s composting sponsor! This women-owned company has been hauling food scraps, reducing landfill waste, and educating the public since 2010. They continually strive to help each person or business meet their sustainability goals. From five gallon pails in residential homes to full-sized cans in restaurant kitchens, these ladies will orchestrate any size pick up, from anywhere in the Chicago Land area. We love this Green Wedding Alliance approved team member and are thrilled they are part of our event as well!

Learn a little more about what’s going on at Naturally Yours Events by reading the Q&A with Carlene (the Owner) below:

2017 Sponsor Spotlight: Relics Vintage Rentals

Wedtoberfest would not have looked as cool without the seating areas (both upstairs and downstairs) provided by Relics Vintage Rentals. We’d like to take a moment to thank Relics for being one of our awesome decor sponsors this year!

She immediately did some local market research and saw a huge gap in the event rental market.  There were no specialty rental companies in the area so she went for it.
