Instead, get the eco home accessories you want the easiest way imaginable…online!

What does Founder of Green Bride Guide, Kate Harrison, have to say about this incredible resource for eco wedding couples? “Guests spend $19 billion a year on wedding gifts,” said Kate L. Harrison, Founder and CEO of the Green Bride Guide. “Our new website offers couples the opportunity to use their wedding registry to support environmentally-conscious businesses. We offer hundreds of pre-screened environmentally responsible and affordable choices couples can feel good about adding to their wish list, without sacrificing style or quality….The idea is to provide shoppers with as much information as possible so they can make informed decisions about the products they are buying,” said Harrison. “Every product is hand-picked by our team and carefully screened to avoid ‘greenwashing,’ the practice of passing off non-green products as eco-friendly.”
