How Green Can you Go?

You can go green with your car, your clothes, your energy…and now, the latest trend is going green with your wedding and honeymoon!

This weekend’s New York Times article, with an eye-raisingly heavy emphasis on weddings where one student was in grad school, pointed out various ways that couples are going green.

Among the earth-and-energy savers were the expected serving of locally grown organic foods and use of a vintage dress.

There was also a heaping of the unusual…such as silverware made of potato compounds and asking guests to sign up for renewable energy instead of gifts.

Not unsurprisingly, the couples plan their honeymoons at eco-friendly retreats, like the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa, which helps fuel the AC by pulling up clean, refreshing sea water from 2500 feet below!

Costa Rica has some amazing green hotels. I really liked staying at these during my honeymoon:

Lapa Rios Ecolodge:

Finca Rosa Blanca:

Someone also recommended this one in Nicaragua recently to me as well. It seems like they are all run by the same company trying to green their properties. I can't wait to check this one out:

Jicaro Island:
