Tuesday Tip: Green Your Registry

Registry Tip: Green Your Registry

Being more eco-concious is no longer just a fad, it's a way of life.  Many people set out to live completely eco-friendly lifestyles, and this includes planning the perfect environmentally conscious event. But when it comes to the gifting, it can sometimes be difficult to create a registry and receive gifts while still being "green." Here are a few quick tips on how to create an eco-registry.  Whether you use them all or just one, you'll be doing your part to help the environment.

  1. Eco-products: Find a few eco-friendly alternatives to some of your registry must haves and sprinkle them into your wish list (you'd be surprised at the great selection out there!)
  2. Lose the gift wrap: Take green-ing your registry one step further by requesting that your guests do not gift wrap.
  3. Reduce shipping: See if your stores will allow you to do in store pickup or hold your items so they can be shipped all at once.  This will help reduce your carbon footprint.  After all, who needs each plate purchased individually shipped one at a time?

Best wishes and happy registering,
