How Green Is Your Wedding Registry?

Go to Huffington Post original
As wedding season approaches, socially-conscious brides and grooms will try to make their special days as eco-friendly as possible. They might buy a Canadian diamond over one from Africa. They will print their invitations on recycled paper. They will choose locally grown flowers. Some may forgo favors all together and just make donations in the names of their guests to a charity, which I always think is sweet. After all, who actually eats those chocolate covered almonds?

Recently I was clicking around a friend's wedding registry when it occurred to me that the registry is an area where even the most social-savvy couple may overlook their public commitment to being responsible. After all, when pretty water pitchers only cost $30, you have to wonder why they're so inexpensive.
