Green Your Wedding: Gifts

Give to the earth Weddings inspire and delight us, but these sacred events have grown into resource-sapping affairs. If you're wondering how to pull off your dream celebration without a huge carbon footprint and an empty bank account, refer to this week's tips to help you work some ecofriendly wedding magic.

Tip #3: Give Back

Let your wedding gifts do some good by registering for ecofriendly products or requesting charitable donations. Register with the I Do Foundation and up to 10% of the price of your guests' purchases will be donated to the charity of your choice. If you already own a complete set of dishes (or you're perfectly happy with your mismatched thrift store plates), consider asking guests to give to the Sierra Club and sponsor a wild place in your name.
