From Then ’til Now

Stefanie Zeldin, Founder of In2Green and a D.C. Native, recently sat down with DW to tell us about her amazing product and their new wedding line (shown below).

“In 2008, before green was the new black, we decided we not only wanted to live greener, but we actually wanted to contribute to a different way of life.

Almost a decade later, we are a small team of women, sharing a vision of work and family. We collaborate with local designers & knitters, and we use recycled & organic cotton yarns to make classic yet modern and sustainable products, all made in the U.S.A.”

What We’re Made Of

Their amazing blanket is a cotton line made from refiberized t-shirt fabrics that are spun into beautiful cotton-blend yarn. This process helps reduce landfill use and requires no additional cotton dyes or chemicals.

This week, they have released their wedding collection, and we are so glad be a part of the first look. Not only are they amazing, but they can also be personalized!

We see it now… The perfect engagement shoot wrap or cozy up by your fire pit, post-dancing, at your reception!

“Glitter” with a hint of metallic thread
“Confetti” which can be personalized with your hashtag!
“Tie the Knot” / “Just Married”

Best of all…

All made eco with recycled cotton/poly blend, knit in USA.

Dear Maryland Brides,

After much anticipation, and as a result of the popularity of its Dupont Circle shop, Shobha has opened its second DC area location (and seventh nationwide) in Rockville Pike. The fashionable hair removal destination’s laser, waxing, sugaring and threading services have captivated a loyal following of fashionistas and celebrities alike.

As part of its company culture, Shobha has committed to furthering the lives of South Asian women and children with philanthropic efforts including the opening of Shobha’s Home for Girls & Women, a home that supports 90 orphaned girls and young women that range in age from pre-school to college.

Shobha’s methods of hair removal include laser, sugaring, threading, waxing and trimming. Today, we are sharing with you their bridal bootcamp experience and just a few tips on how to get ready for your big day when it comes to hair….
