There are so many fantastic suites that are in the Wiley Valentine line like Luxe and Luxe II, the eco-friendly Bridal, and the luxurious Letterpress.  I did want to share a few from those lines and encourage you to view their other collections—like those for social events and for baby!  And needless to say, the WV Couture line is fabulous all by itself.

 

Enjoy the beauty of Wiley Valentine!

Go Green with Recyclable Luggage

 

Perhaps you have already decided to go on a green honeymoon.  Perhaps not—but you still want to do your part to travel efficiently and in a responsible manner towards our environment.  Good on ya, mate!  Now, it can be made just a little bit easier with Papier Bags by Saskia Diez which will be available in select retail stores and on the online shop next month.  Saskia Diez is a world renowned jeweler who will now grace the world with her eco-friendly luggage. 

According to Trendhunter, the bags are made from synthetic paper, etched with sterling silver and are recyclable, waterproof and almost impossible to tear. 

Paper or Plastic?

Most of us do our shopping, come home put our stuff away and then what? Do you throw your bags away? or Recycle? Like most people you probably throw your bags in the trash and don’t give them a second thought.

Did you know less than six percent of plastics bags actually make it to the recycling bin?

But as there becomes more and more of an awarensess to “go green” people are finding easy ways to make a difference. For example these cute reusable bags by Envirosax. They come in different graphic series pouches with 5 bags in each pouch for $37.50.  Not only are they cute but they can also carry the equivalent of 2 grocery bags.

Reusablebags.com posted these facts as well as a running count of plastic bags cosumed this year.

  • Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. Billions end up as litter each year.

  • According to the EPA, over 380 billion plastic bags, sacks and wraps are consumed in the U.S. each year.

  • According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. goes through 100 billion plastic shopping bags annually. (Estimated cost to retailers is $4 billion)
