There are plenty of places online where you can register for greener wedding gifts. First though consider if you even want to register. Do you need new items for your new life together, or could you skip gifts altogether? If you skip gifts consider asking people to donate a little something to the eco-organization of your choice instead.
However, if you’d like to register for wedding gifts, there are ways to keep your registry eco-friendly.
Less shipping, support the local economy, and make it easy for friends and family to find the store. The problem here is that there are very few green shopping venues in most cities.
Going online is often your most comprehensive choice for green wedding registry.
The best online green wedding registry in my opinion is Alternative Gift Registry at New American Dream. This FREE online one-stop gift registry makes it easy to choose green gifts and cool alternative wedding gifts as well. You can register for green gifts from eco-shopping sites all over the web and even include a link to your favorite charity, or ask for givers to sign up for babysitting time, guest book duty, or request favorite recipes. They even have a super keen green wedding registry example set up to browse for ideas.
If you want to go with a single registry shop check out the following green options…
- An Eco-Gift Registry for Green Weddings
- 3r Living
- Design Public
- Re: modern
Are you registering for gifts or going with an alternative idea?
