Green Bride Guide Launches New Green Wedding Registry

GreenBrideGuide.com, the companion website for the book The Green Bride Guide by Kate Harrison, has launched a new green wedding registry service and gift shop online.

The new registry offers a huge pre-screened collection of sustainable gifts for couples to choose from. "From non-toxic cookware and recycled wine glasses to earth-friendly fine china
and organic cotton textiles, the shop features hundreds of eco-friendly home goods. It is also the first store to offer free carbon-neutral shipping with every purchase."According to a survey conducted by David's Bridal in 2009 almost half (48%) of the brides surveyed stated that they were committed to going green, this included registering for eco-friendly products.

The Green Bride Guide registry offers couples the opportunity to easily register for eco-friendly goods while learning a lot about the products they are shopping for. The registry includes detailed information for each product listed including where it came from, how it is made, and what materials were used in production of the product. The registry also offers easy to use search features that sort products by: country of origin, state of origin for made in the USA products, eco strategy (choose whether to search for fair trade, ethically sourced, or handmade), and eco- certifications like USDA organic.

Awesome! The more green resources out there the better...

I just added the confetti glass water tumblers to my registry at myregistry.com along with a bunch of etsy items. It's nice to have real options for a registry, It makes being green easy. There's even a barcode scanner iphone app for myregistry I've been using at local shops. I love that green bride guide lets you shop by color!! Such a good idea!

Yes, I actually downloaded the MyRegistry.com iPhone app too and have been using their barcode scanner for my registry! Pretty cool, huh? I'm really into a lot of these items and will definitely be adding them to my MyRegistry.com wishlist. Thank you!
