Green Prezies for those Gett’n Hitched

My niece is getting married and she and her fiancé are planning a ‘green’ wedding. To get into the green spirit, Jane and have purchased an eco-friendly wedding present and will take the train to the Ottawa Valley where the wedding takes place.

Do you have a wedding to go to? Why not purchase a wedding gift that’s absolutely fabulous for the couple and the planet. Here are some planet-friendly gift ideas…
  • Organic cotton, hemp or bamboo bed sheets, towels, blankets, pillows, throws.
  • Recycled glassware such as Protect our Earth Glasses - recycled glasses made from the bottom halves of Bordeaux bottles.
  • Bamboo cutting boards, bowels, plates, cups, utensils.
  • Solar oven or solar barbecue.
  • Fair trade furniture.

Thank goodness for gift registries! My niece has one set up through The Bay – with some eco-friendly gifts set for purchase. Some green companies, such as those listed below, are savvy enough to offer gift registries through their websites.

Branch, Greenfeet, GreenSage and VivaTerra
