The holidays are approaching, you’re thinking of gifts to thank your bridesmaids for being a part of your special day…so much shopping to do! We’re keeping our eyes open for great eco-friendly items to help, and just came across these cool new scarves by designer Vivienne Westwood for Lush! Lush is a natural cosmetics brand, that’s actively involved in fighting issues related to climate change. These limited-edition Climate Revolution Knot-Wraps are made from 100 percent organic cotton by British artisans. Not only are they a fashion-forward pop of color for the closet, but the scarves can also double as gift wrap.
The wraps are available in Lush stores starting today, so stop by and grab one (or a few). Who knows, we just may see you there!

Your Cloud Parade, THE planning destination for the eco-fun bride, is full of sweet little handmade novelties for your wedding day. We love these adorable peg doll cake toppers by knottingwood! You can customize the wood creations to resemble you, your groom (and even your little furbaby) all the way down to the hair color. Too cute!
Did you know that the average American produces 4.4 pounds of trash a day, and the United States produces over 250 million tons of trash a year?
While our country has made great strides in its recycling movement, we all know there is still much more work to be done. This Friday, join the nation in America Recycles Day, and continue to create awareness around the importance of recycling. You can participate in a number of ways, from making a simple pledge to joining or even hosting a recycling event.
Remember that your wedding is an ideal opportunity to recycle en masse, and to get your guests on board. Work with your vendors to create a recycling plan for the day!

Melissa and Brian, along with 55 of their closest family and friends, married in the mountains of Deer Valley, Utah last winter. Desiring a day with a vintage feel, the couple chose a classic and elegant black and white color palette and décor, and allowed the beauty of the snowy mountains to showcase the day.
A few eco facts about their wedding:
Melissa wore a family treasure—her grandmother’s bracelet which each granddaughter in her family wears on their wedding day.
In lieu of favors, the couple donated money to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Cancer Center in honor of the groom’s cousin Jeff Albright who battled cancer as a child.
The reception meal, prepared fireside at the venue, included homemade fig mustard and strawberry chutney. Yum!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Melissa and Brian!
