Recycled Bride makes guest appearances
Did you miss me today? I missed you too! Normally I cook up something extra fun for the blog on Mondays (We observe Monday Funday like a holiday around here). But due to extenuating circumstances (I’ve got the sniffles; one of our dogs got into something utterly disgusting and needed an emergency bath), today’s post is all about…well, other posts I wrote for other websites!
A fun article of mine was published today on Project Wedding, all about non-floral decorating ideas. Or, I should say, non-cut flower decorating ideas. From bouquets to boutonnieres to centerpieces, there are a million ways to adorn your green wedding in loveliness without incurring the high cost and heavy carbon footprint of cut flowers. Conventional cut flowers are bad for people and the planet, causing pesticide pollution, carbon emissions from international transport, and underpaid, unprotected laborers (to name just a few icky elements of the industry). This book tells the whole story.
Also be sure to check out my favorite HairDos and Hair Don’ts (get it?) for brides, over on OneWed today. This post features a quick run-down of all the icky and harmful hair product ingredients you should be avoiding, and then talks about three of my absolute favorite hair care products in the world. Natural hair care can be tricky, because so much of the good foaming and cleansing and hold that we like is produced by the exact chemicals we want to avoid. But I’ve been diligent in my research and found some great stuff that I know works.
Oh, and on Wednesday, I’m going to be on the radio! It feels very retro and academic-glam. Plus, I can wear my PJs and nobody will be the wiser. Details to follow…
