Green is the New Black

Guest Blogger: Justin Demutiis

Green is good, but it’s not just a temporary new year’s resolution. In an age where green is the new black, it has become not only a trend, but a lifestyle commitment to help save our planet.
Below is a small example of the amazing amount of “green” products on the market today.

Nothing packs our landfill quite like paper and cardboard. Below is an example of how I not only recycle boxes and packaging, but I will also eventually repurpose them.

Finally, is recycling simply inconvenient for you? Well the iRecycle app makes it one step easier. It will tell you where you can recycle anything from a car battery, to CD’s. And for something fun, I have Eco Citations to hand out for major infractions. Let’s just say that several H2′s in my apartment complex have received an Eco Citation, and there are many more to hand out.

I thought I would end this post with a reminder of why saving our planet is a good idea. I like to think that when I have kids, they will enjoy the same beauty of nature that I did.

Sometimes the greenest thing you can do is buy something
only once, and keep it for the rest of your life.

More about Justin DeMutiis

My first glimpse at becoming a professional photographer came when I was a freshmen in college. I became one of eight college students in North America to win a scholarship to attend the North American Nature Photography Association's annual summit. To this I owe my style. Not long after, I found my true calling in Wedding Photography. A place where all my technical skills seamlessly blend with so many things I love. More than that, wedding photography provides something that nature photography and all other forms of photography couldn't for me, emotional impact. To me, nothing compares to providing a timeless set of images that tells the story of one of the most important and happiest days of two people's lives.
