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.
