Since 1995 when Lori and I started this crazy thing called Of The Earth, we have had so many wonderful opportunities to work with wedding professionals who are making a difference in their communities and the larger world we share. Over the next several months we will introduce you to some of them here.
Back when we first wrote our business plan and mission statement we were committed to never losing our focus on what was important to us which is why we selected the name “Of The Earth” to conduct business under. We were frustrated by the lack of accountability in the work environments we spent time in. Kevin watched plastic bags of ship’s garbage being punctured (to let in sea water) and then tossed overboard during his commercial fishing days. Done in the dead of night to avoid detection, this was the accepted standard when the on-board incinerator was “broken”. Lori started countless recycling programs at the many jobs she juggled during her college years. While Seattle was a leader in residential recycling programs, business were slow to catch on. It was not until the Green revolution of 2008 that businesses saw the marketing potential of touting how “Green” their products and practices were. One company that we love working with that has been focused on our earth since their beginning is Green Karat.
Green Karat is an earth focused wedding ring business that you can read more about here: www.greenkarat.com. They have been using our lotka printer safe seed paper as order receipts for their customers and shipping many of their rings in our 2″ square seed paper favor boxes. We love working with them and highly recommend their products and services, they really are the best!
