A Green Event & The Gift of Trees

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Many weddings (and other events) are going green. For those who want to give a gift that will last a lifetime, there is the option of giving a tree. The details are yours to work out, but a great place to buy that we would recommend is The Arbor Day Foundation

This link provides gift trees for wedding favors, anniversaries, baby gifts, and many other occasions.

The wedding couple may want to list this in their gift registry.

Environmentally Eco-Friendly & Socially Responsible

Monday, February 28th, 2011

We are always striving to make our products more eco-friendly. This includes our Wedding Invitations of course. We are not only expanding our category of eco-friendly invitations, but almost our entire stock of invitations are now printed with soy based inks. We are working to achieve eco-friendly status on all our printed products. We want to offer the most beautiful and creative designs, with the lowest impact on the environment.

Also, we are proud to welcome 2011 with a list of our Socially Responsible causes. We feel it’s important that, personally and through our businesses, we give back to our communities as a part of the ‘work’ we do. We were very pleased to see that the state of Vermont has formalized this business designation and clearly identifies and supports Socially Responsible Businesses. These businesses provide a percentage of their business to donate financially, give workers time off to volunteer, or donate supplies where they are needed.

Salem Design has always been a community conscious, and we would like to mention the causes and organizations which we support. We support these organizations by donations, gifts in kind, and volunteer our time and talents. For any Salem Design purchase over $100, just mention one of these causes, and we will donate 5% of the purchase price to that organization. And thank you!

10 Steps to a Green Wedding

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

This post takes you to the Sierra Club’s The Green Life blog that gives 10 detailed and terrific ways to think about planning your wedding. Of course these days Green is a lot more than a wedding. But a wedding symbolizes a lot, about the couple, the friends and family, and how they relate to living in this world.
We think one very important thing that a green wedding can do – and is often left unstated – is that it can lower the hassle factor for the bride especially, and for everyone else who helps plan, and attends the wedding. Green weddings, and green lifestyles are about taking it easy, on the environment, and yourself. The green wedding can make your event as stylish or casual as you want, with no rating scale on your expenditure as a measure of its success. It’s about how the couple feels about themselves, and the included “wedding ring” – all those who join with you – to celebrate the day. What you choose in a green wedding can make it especially memorable and meaningful, and carry the message well beyond the wedding event.
We’re working on getting some green wedding ideas and services on our “wedding (ring) links” page, starting with local, New England. But our Wedding Invitations section is huge – we provide a spectrum of invitations that will please any bride, anywhere, any style or preference.
As far as a big listing of green ideas for a wedding, this is a good and comprehensive one, from the Sierra Club.
