Using this service, guests gave us a night at the first green hotel in New York (Greenhouse 26), art classes, salsa lessons and a piece of work by Kevin Kutz, among other things. We also set up a registry with the I Do Foundation, so that when guests did buy us tangible gifts a portion went to support the causes of our choice.
Purple = Eggplant Rollatini
Pink = Salmon

Another thing Joshua Houdek and Kristi Papenfuss did was to cater their meal with compostable dishes, like the ones available from Stalkmarket which are made from bagasse - a sugar cane processing "leftover" - making them a compostable, biodegradable and recycled product. Because bagasse is so durable, the plates do not have to be coated in polyethlene (common with wood-pulp paper products), which is an added benefit. The fewer chemicals the better!
