6 Ways to Have an Eco-Friendly Wedding

When I got married in 2009, I admit I wasn’t as ‘green’ as I am now. My green lifestyle changes have been a journey for me and I was in the baby steps portion of it at that point. I didn’t even think of doing things in a more Eco-friendly way at the time ....more

I have teenagers. Currently, just one lives here, yet it seems that with everyone’s schedule we rarely get a chance to have a family meal since we are all going different directions all at once.
