This green-centric site offers a new perspective on gift giving

If you’re not exactly thrilled with the gifts your loved ones are known to give, why not ditch the usual wedding registry and opt for a more charitable option? One Green Balloon, a sort of ethical take on Evites, allows you to plan your wedding minus the carbon foot print. Your guests receive their invite, RSVP, get their thank your card; even contribute to your registry — with financial contributions — via the site. With no wrapping, stamps, or driving around in search of that perfect something, the site furthers its good-doings by asking couples to donate a percentage of their registry to the charity of their choice.

So instead of a fish shaped bowl from wacky Aunt Gladys, why not give that money to a worthwhile cause instead? For a small fee you can turn your white wedding a satisfying shade of green.
