Actress Amy Smart and eco-carpenter Carter Oosterhouse met at an environmental charity benefit in November 2010, so their decision to have an eco-friendly wedding sounds about right!

According to Contact Music, the couple made the environmental footprint of their big day as small as possible. Oosterhouse said, “Our wedding was very green. We had 220 people there and only one bag of trash, not even a full bag. We recycled everything, we composted everything.”

That’s pretty impressive, and the newlyweds plan to continue the green life with solar panels on their new house. Smart said, “For my house, I had (the solar paneling company) come and… try and put them on my roof. From the mountains and the location, they said I wouldn’t be able to benefit from it and it would be so expensive because I get so much shade at some points. So yeah, if we can, we will definitely try to put solar on (the new house).”

Congratulations, Earth-lovers!
