With a GreenSmart bag, there is no need to sacrifice the planet for everyday style!
Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, the bags are not only stylish, but functional, too. We love GreenSmart less is more approach to manufacturing —less waste, less toxins and more awareness about conserving nature, not harming it.

We originally featured Kristen + Todd’s wedding in our Summer/Fall 2012 issue! The couple wanted a wedding day that was infused with beauty and as many local finds as possible, and with a minimal impact on the environment. Here are just a few ways they made it happen:
- Place Cards and Menu Cards were made from 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper embedded with wildflower seeds
- Ring bearer pillows were hand made by the bride’s mom, using silk from her own wedding gown
- Apple were picked from the Kristen + Todd’s yard, dehydrated and bagged for guests as favors
- Décor was created by friends; one friend created a willow arch for the ceremony, and two bridesmaids created clusters of lanterns, curly willow and shimmery ribbon to decorate the reception

Kristen + Ed held their wedding in their own backyard, which just happens to be a colorful and lush marshland. After their intimate ceremony, their celebration transitioned to another green venue, a restored barn originally built in the 1800s that sits at the base of Parker Mountain in New Hampshire.
Their day was almost completely handcrafted, including their ceremony alter, vintage farm reception tables and mind iced tea from their very own garden!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Kristen + Ed!
