Earthbound Artisan’s monthly installment for February invites us to focus on the beauty of dormancy. To the untrained eye, the winter season can look boring, dead and stripped of life. But to a nature lover, the winter landscape is rich with possibility, home to a still and quiet kind of dormancy with a beauty all its own.
Environmentally conscious couples are finding creative ways to say “I do” to the planet as well as each other. Green twists on old traditions can include sending invitations by email or on biodegradable paper, choosing a scenic outdoor setting, decorating with wildflowers or silk blooms and eating vegan meals on bamboo disposable plates. Caterers can also pitch in by repurposing used vegetable oil, recycling when possible, using non-toxic detergents and making donations for carbon offsets. A sidebar on green engagement rings such as family heirlooms and lab-generated stones is also included.
