Let Love Grow - Environmentally Friendly Wedding Favors

Since Earth Day is right around the corner and we're still riding the Wedding Planning train here at the Sugar Network, I decided to go out and find some environmentally sound wedding favors. Personally, I'm not really into wedding favors - I'm a pack rat and keep everything, so things just sort of sit around collecting dust and taking up space in my small house - making me a little irritated. However, when I saw these wedding favors that you can plant, I thought they were fantastic. You get to give a great, environment-friendly wedding favor that the person can plant in their backyard, pot, etc! There are a lot of great designs (birds, butterflies, flowers, hearts, cakes, etc) in the plantable seed paper category, and there are quite a few options in the "cards that come with a seed packet" too. However, my favorite ones are the plantable love tag - which also doubles as a placecard setting ($2.50 each) and this "Love Blooms" personalized seed packet (set of 24 for $32).

there's this current environment conservation programme here in singapore, and they're selling these bath gloves with froggies at each finger tip (for better scrubbing?? lol). i love the whole idea, especially cos with every glove, they give you a seed favour! all you gotta do is bring it home, soak it in water, and after some time plant it. easy, and green :D

my husband's cousin gave flower seeds as their favors...but the groom is a horticulturist, so it really made sense

The other thing I found when I was planning my wedding was a site that donated a part of whatever you spent to charity. We ended up getting our Save-the-Dates from there and I looked at their invitations. The site is called the I Do Foundation and has all sorts of things - including wedding favors. You get to pick the charity and 10% of your purchase gets donated. You could always pick an environmental charity.

I think that they did bulbs instead of seeds though.
