Indonesian Wedding Ritual

CNN published a story about a new initiative in Indonesia that requires newlyweds to plant ten tress in an effort to fight deforestation (thanks for sharing, Maureen!).

It would be a fun ritual to voluntarily institute in our own lives. Ooh, maybe Matt and I should figure out how to plant trees on every anniversary...

Our friends had a tree planting ceremony as part of their wedding (instead of a unity candle or a sand ceremony). I thought it was awesome, especially since the bride is a farm girl with a horticulture degree.

I love the idea of planting another tree every anniversary.
