Green Bride Guide: 3 Wedding Favors for a Glitzy and Green New Year’s Eve

Eco-friendly favors that will shine on New Year’s Eve.

1. Tiffany Necklace

Surprise your bridesmaids and your maid of honor with a beautiful, sustainable and organic pearl necklace. The cultivation of pearls requires the preservation of the ecosystem. The water must be pristine, the land around it must be undisturbed and the air clean. The slightest change in water temperature, salinity, pollution and current can kill the oysters. In fact, the cultivation of pearls is the only industry that requires man to preserve and protect the environment.

2. Grand Marnier Lollipops

These lovely lollies have a pretty sheen to them. The Grand Marnier, an orange-flavored brandy liqueur, stands on its own, full of sunny lusciousness. Real, edible 23K gold sprinkled into the candy mixture adds to the beautiful aesthetic quality of this lollipop, creating an elegant favor for your wedding!

3. Cape Sundew Nail Polish

Priti NYC polishes are all completely non-toxic and made without toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DHB) and formaldehyde. These luxury polishes are fast drying, chip resistant, contain a UV inhibitor, and are extremely durable and glossy. They are also completely safe for use on children and moms-to-be. Priti NYC is very active in working with various charities and events in the community that support both environmental and women’s issues.
