Green Wedding Ideas - Recycled Glass Vases

With the emergence of all things green, some are left to wonder how to incorporate eco-consciousness into the fabric of their lives. For many, the decision to make eco-friendly choices is directly affected by the effort necessary to make a contribution. In a result oriented society, some find it difficult to make decisions which, by themselves, seem insignificant. Weddings and events offer the ideal opportunity make a contribution with minimal effort. In the special event / wedding design industry, this budding concept has been widely embraced. With nearly 2.3 million weddings projected nationwide in 2007, many small contributions can clearly make a significant impact. One popular choice being made by Chicago brides is the use of recycled glass vases. Recycled glass vases, often used for centerpieces and wedding reception d├ęcor, are widely available in hundreds of forms, shapes and colors to accommodate a wide range of style and budget needs. Recycled glass bowls, bottles or platters paired with seasonal organic, hand picked or locally grown floral can add the perfect finishing touch to any holiday table. Growers of organic and transitional organic flowers, once overshadowed by the more abundant organic produce growers, now make available an ever expanding selection of "green" botanicals to complete your eco-friendly design without compromising style. From Roses to Calla Lilies, rustic to formal, eco-friendly floral selections are more readily available than ever. Recycled glass vases can be recycled an infinite number of times without loss of quality, require considerably less energy to process and conserve natural resources. Recycling a single glass vase saves enough energy to operate a television for 90 minutes. To put this in perspective, if each 2007 wedding chooses to recycle just one vase, enough energy would be saved to operate a single television continuously for nearly 400 years.
