Less Wasteful Welcomes

I know a lot of couples are looking for ways to "green" their weddings. It can be a daunting task, and I don't think any couple should beat themselves up over the consumption and waste that results from their wedding if they are conscientious in the way they live their everyday lives. If you can, however, put some of your everyday practices into use for your wedding, well that's just great. If you're looking for a place to start, look at your Welcome Bags for out of town guests! Check out these canvas beauties from cheaptotes.com. They're only $0.99 each and highly unlikely to end up in the hotel's dumpster.

I'd wager 99% of Welcome Bags also contain bottled water. If you're not already making use of polycarbonate water bottles yourself, get on that! ( 8 out of 10 plastic water bottles used in the United States end up in a landfill. ) Then see if you can't start your wedding guests off on a greener foot by sending them home with customized, reusable water bottles! These are from discountmugs.com and are about $1.50 each. They even have some generic wedding clip art that you can have imprinted if you don't have a monogram or motif of your own.
