Cactus Collective Weddings Partners with Environmental Non-Profit ‘Leave No Trace’

Cactus Collective Weddings, a premiere Las Vegas Wedding Elopement company, has partnered with Leave No Trace (www.lnt.org) to further their commitment to lightening their environmental footprint through sustainability.

Cactus Collective Weddings and its owner McKenzi Taylor have created countless memorable elopements and intimate destination weddings against Las Vegas’ exquisite natural terrain. The company’s diverse outdoor wedding locations like Valley of Fire, Cactus Joe’s, Red Rock Canyon, Dry Lake Bed and Floyd Lamb Park (to just name a few), make Las Vegas an ideal destination wedding location for the company’s clientele.

In the interest of protecting the natural beauty of Las Vegas’ parks, canyons and nature preserves, Cactus Collective Weddings has partnered with non-profit organization, Leave No Trace, to double down on their commitment to lighten their environmental footprint in the Las Vegas area, and to set an example within the events industry. This partnership is in conjunction with The Leave No Trace in Every Park Initiative. The initiative’s mission states, “everyone who steps into the natural world is provided with the tools to develop an outdoor ethic,” in the settings where it matters most, “our shared public lands.”

“As a company, we have always been committed to sustainability and to protecting the natural resources and land that have provided our clients with such beautiful weddings. The events industry creates a great deal of waste and so many of the items that are used are one-time use items like excessive florals, plastic wear, one-time gifts, excess food and excess food waste,” states Cactus Collective Weddings owner McKenzi Taylor. “We are excited to be partnering with Leave No Trace to ensure that our weddings leave the lightest possible footprint in these exquisite natural locations.”

Many of Cactus Collective’s wedding location venues are located in protected or partially protected areas, and the company plans to continue do their part to keep these areas accessible for future generations, and for future weddings and events. 

In line with their core values, Cactus Collective Weddings offers couples a guide to planning a sustainable Las Vegas wedding, titled The Ultimate Guide to a Sustainable Las Vegas Wedding and another article highlighting past sustainable weddings and photo shoots they have produced, titled, 25 Tips for Having a Sustainable Wedding.

“As an outdoor enthusiast, I moved to Las Vegas to enjoy the recreation that Red Rock Canyon and other desert locations in our area offer. After learning more about how I could minimize my impact on the environment, I knew that Leave No Trace’s values were aligned with the core of what we provide at Cactus Collective Weddings.”
