Kona Compost

Connect on Instagram or Facebook: @konacompost

Meet Kona Compost, your local woman-owned compost pick-up service providing the Bucks County community with an easy way to keep their food scraps out of the landfill. Kona Compost was founded by Heather Guidice in 2019 with a mission to make composting easy, accessible and fun all while giving back to our planet and keeping our environment healthy. Kona Compost collects food scraps from a variety of events along with hundreds of households and businesses in the area.

Why should you compost?

The answer is simple, food waste doesn’t belong in the landfill. It’s a resource that can be turned into a nutrient dense amendment for gardens helping to build soil and reduce the need to use fertilizer. When food waste is thrown out, it doesn’t break down and instead creates methane which is harmful to the environment.

How does it work?

  1. Select your service level.
    1. Bin Drop-Off/Pick-Up
      • Compost bins are dropped off prior to the event start and picked up at the conclusion. Bins are labeled and lined with a compostable bag.
    2. On-site Waste Attendant
      • Compost bins are dropped off prior to the event start and picked up at the conclusion. Kona Compost staff member(s) will be on-site to direct guests on proper waste disposal.
  2. Kona Compost will compost your food and floras and will provide a report on how much was diverted from the landfill. They will work directly with the couple, event planners and/or caterers to ensure composting success. A customized quote will be provided based on your needs with packages starting at $225. Their team can also help with certified compostable service ware.
Kona Compost would love to make your wedding day a sustainable one! Please visit www.konacompost.com/events and fill out the form to get started. Someone will reach out to schedule a call to learn more.

Prologue Therapy

115 Main St, Flemington, NJ | (908) 271-8547
www.prologuetherapynj.com

Prologue Therapy is about to bust a myth for you: the divorce rate hasn't been over 50% in a long time. In fact, it’s been steadily declining for many years and is likely closer to 37%. This is great news for your upcoming marriage (congratulations, by the way!) but society didn’t make these improvements without hard work from couples like you. It’s a combination of couples getting married older, trying out living together before marriage, and putting in the effort to work on themselves and their relationship, often with the help of mental health professionals.

One more statistic: couples who engage in some form of premarital counseling have a 30% higher chance of success in their relationship. At Prologue, they utilize a widely-recognized premarital counseling model that is designed for couples who are not struggling, but who are actually ready to take it to the next level. It’s a structured 5-6 sessions each dedicated to an important topic— family, love languages, role expectations, values, healthy communication, and more. If your officiant requires premarital counseling as part of your agreement, Prologue Therapy also provides certificates commemorating your dedication to your love.

You have the power to make your marriage last far beyond just the wedding day, and they would be honored to help you along the way. Give them a call at (908) 271-8547 or email hello@prologuetherapy.com.
