Gift Registry

Finally, your guests may want to bring you gifts to celebrate your special day. Consider registering at a green com- pany like Gaiam or EcoExpress Gifts. You can also ask guests to donate to a charity or nonprofit in your name through The site offers a gift registry option, so your guests can easily find out which of the million charities available you would like to support.

Another charitable option is to cre- ate a “Personal Giving Page” on the Internet through First Giving. By using First Giving’s simple interface, you can make a Web page with your pictures and a personal message to send to guests, asking them to make a dona- tion to your favorite cause instead of bringing a present. Green America has set up an account with First Giv- ing, so if you’d like to create a Per- sonal Giving Page to support our work to grow a green economy, please visit coopamerica.

There are many ways to color your party green, but what all such celebrations have in common is that they’re unique, eco-friendly, and unforgettable.
