Saturday, June 12, 2010 Wedding Registry Donates to Charity

Brides and grooms can help the environment while planning their big day by using as their wedding regisrty go-to.

Many couples are encouraging their guests to buy their gifts via

The online shopping mall donates up to 30% of every purchase made at more than 1,400 stores - including Williams-Sonoma, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, The Knot Wedding Shop, Target and other stores where people generally register - to the couple’s favorite ‘green’ cause (including the NRDC, The Nature Conservancy, Conservation International and others!).

In addition, the site lists hundreds of deals and coupons so users can save money while shopping for a good cause!

Here’s how it works:

1) Go to

2) Designate your favorite charity

3) Enter the store you want to shop at and get a list of the coupons and deals

4) Shop as you normally would and a percentage of what you spend goes back to your cause

By using GoodShop, the new couple will receive all of the gifts they’ve chosen and the guests still pay the same price (or lower with all the coupons listed), but at the same time, the couple’s favorite charity receives a portion of everything that was spent!
