Green Honeymoons

July 6, 2009

Green is in.

All the celebs (always the barometers of responsible behavior) have been touting an eco-friendly lifestyle recently. Jennifer Aniston was even quoted as saying, “I take a three-minute shower. I even brush-wash – brush my teeth while I shower. Every two minutes in the shower uses as much water as a person in Africa uses for everything in their life for a whole day.”

Well that’s very nice, but I’m pretty sure the fact that she probably resides in a 100,000 square foot beast of an abode kinda negates the water she saves by brushing her teeth in the shower. But it’s the thought that counts, right?

Anyway, being environmentally conscious is important, laughable celebrity endorsement or not. You may think that it’s difficult or aggravating to integrate eco-friendliness into your daily life. However, there are many ways to go about saving the polar bears from global warming (those adorable furry animals are what motivate me). Planning your honeymoon in a resort that is kind to the environment is a great way for you and your spouse to start a life of green living together.

InStyle Weddings features a list of eco-friendly honeymoon destinations, none of which involving roughing it in a shabby tent while fighting off creepy crawlers. These places, located in Mexico, California, Nicaragua and South Africa, are absolutely breathtaking and help to reduce your carbon footprint. Surprisingly, they also seem rather affordable. What’s not to love?

C’mon…do it for the polar bears.
