Green Your Royal Wedding: The Ring

Engagement ring The wedding of the year is here! We're celebrating the nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton by offering royal-wedding-inspired tips. Here's how to green your wedding just like Wills and Kate — even if you're not exactly royalty.

Tip #1: Give a vintage ring.

When William proposed to Kate with his mother's sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring, the prince did more than honor Princess Diana's memory. Mining takes an environmental toll, so vintage bands are the sustainable choice. If you don't have access to a fabulous hand-me-down, look for retailers who specialize in ethical, recycled jewelry

Tip #2: The gifts!

Tip #3: The flowers!

Tip #4: The food!

Tell us: How did you or will you green your wedding?
