Finding eco-friendly wedding invitation options is one easy task these days. I have found many, many sites that offer invites made from 100 percent recycled paper, bamboo paper, plantable paper, tree-free paper, etc. etc. The challenge here is less about finding an eco-friendly company, but about choosing the one best suited to my wedding in terms of style, sustainability and budget. I met the owner of last week at the Green Festival in Washington D.C. The company's paper stock is absolutely gorgeous. Though it's not anything close to local, the paper is produced by Nepalese artisans who make their living by their craft, which is a great thing. It also helps that the owner was quite friendly and helpful and that they make gorgeous invitation packages. I will list more options as I move forward, but I would LOVE your suggestions so I can check out all the options. We are thinking about screen-printing them ourselves to save money. Has anyone attempted to do this?
