Plan a Green Honeymoon with Traveler’s Joy

Posted on February 1, 2012 by Courtney


Are you getting married anytime soon? I’m not, but I’ve been a part of many weddings in the past few years, and from what I’ve seen, the wedding registry is one of the most stressful parts of the planning process. Sure, it’s super fun to walk around the store with that scanner gun thing and point it at everything you want, but surely you have to rein it in at some point, right?

Wedding registries have got to be even more stressful if you’re a Greenist. If you want to purchase things for your home responsibly, there’s a lot to consider. Besides, if you’re engaged, you’ve got a lot of exciting things to think about, and one of them is your honeymoon. Wouldn’t it be great if you could kill two birds with one stone — the registry and your honeymoon planning — in a green way?  

Turns out, you can! Traveler’s Joy is an online honeymoon registry. You and your finance register for experiences and activities, and your wedding guests can go online to make a contribution toward the cost of your honeymoon. It’s green because you won’t get a bunch of unneeded items for your wedding.

When you create your registry with Traveler’s Joy, you can customize your page to reflect exactly the honeymoon you want. You can add images, descriptions and videos so your family and friends can feel like they’re joining in the experience. You can choose any destination in the world.

While we’re on the subject of green travel, do some research before booking any trip. Will your hotel be run in an eco-friendly way? Will you plan to eat local food as much as possible? We’ve got tips for you here at The Greenists to make your next vacation as green as possible.

  1. What a cool idea! I love the thought of gifting a couple I care about with an experience instead of a thing.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
