Green Your Wedding -- Invitations

Getting hitched? Congrats! Sierra's ace researcher, Michael Fox, recently did the same. He's sharing five great tips this week for making the big day a big win for you, your guests, and the environment. According to Michael, "You can green your wedding without making the day any less special."

Tip #1: Look for recycled paper and eco-friendly inks. Skip the response cards. 

You don’t need to clear an entire forest to let your guests know when and where your wedding will be. Choose invitations that use minimal paper (recycled, when possible) and soy- or vegetable-based inks. Allow guests to RSVP online to save paper on response cards and envelopes.

If you’re having trouble finding a stationery store that has these options available, you can find great designs online. Etsy.com can connect you with artists who make a variety of beautiful products by hand. It’s a great way to find a unique design and support a small business at the same time. Check out this seller’s great green products, just one of hundreds available on Etsy.
