Green Wedding: Planning Your Eco-Friendly Celebration

Green is the new white for today’s brides–metaphorically speaking. Environmentally conscious couples are often appalled by the carbon footprint of traditional weddings and are seeking ways to express their earth-friendly values as they express their love. As Green Wedding shows, there are alternatives–products and services that can reduce environmental harm while ensuring a joyous and stylish celebration. Featuring stories of couples who have “gone green” on their wedding day, this authoritative guide by New York Times Style correspondent Mireya Navarro explains how couples can green their dream wedding, and why this is important. The book presents ideas for maximizing the sustainability of every aspect of your ceremony and reception–from choosing (and reusing) wedding attire, to offsetting the global-warming impact of your guests’ travel, to designing a menu (including cake and Champagne) that’s seasonal, local, and organic. And because environmental responsibility isn’t just a one-day affair, the book includes chapters on ecotourism honeymoons and on living sustainably throughout your married life.

Who is Chef José Andrés?

José Andrés is a Chef, Humanitarian and Author from Puerto Rico

Prepared More Hot Meals in Puerto Rico than the Red Cross

After Maria, José Andrés and his team have prepared more hot meals in Puerto Rico than the Red Cross. – Washington Post


José Andrés and World Central Kitchen have prepared and delivered a million meals since arriving in Puerto Rico in late September. (Sarah L. Voisin/The Washington Post)

Chef José Andrés – Restaurateur & Relief Worker

In the fall of 2017, as José Andrés and an untold number of volunteers were preparing millions of hot meals for Puerto Ricans following Hurricane Maria, the celebrity chef realized that the hunger that swept across the island was not just the result of a powerful Category 4 storm. It was the result of a natural disaster plus some man-made ones.

Puerto Rico, in short, could not feed itself before the hurricane hit, let alone after it.

José Andrés World Central Kitchen (NPO)

More than a year after Maria made landfall, World Central Kitchen – the nonprofit organization that Andrés founded after the Haiti earthquake in 2010 — and many other organizations are working with small farmers, ranchers, fish co-ops and food-related businesses to rebuild the island’s agricultural economy. They want to make it more food secure and help it recover faster when disaster strikes. They all seem to have absorbed an important lesson in the wake of Maria: If they can’t trust the territorial government to help after a disaster, they better rely on themselves.

Food Diaries of Chef José Andrés

Chef José Andrés discusses the first thing he ate in America, his political aspirations, and what would have happened if he had worked with President Trump. (The Washington Post)

“We Fed an Island” After Maria (Category 4 Hurricane)

With his book “We Fed an Island,” chef-and-restaurateur-turned-relief worker José Andrés doesn’t just tell the story about how he and a fleet of volunteers cooked millions of meals for the Americans left adrift on Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. He exposes what he views as an outdated top-down, para-military-type model of disaster relief that proved woefully ineffective on an island knocked flat by the Category 4 hurricane.

“When we establish contact with a community, we maintain that contact,” Andrés said during a phone interview from San Juan. “When we go to a place, we take care of that place until we feel it has the right conditions to sustain itself. That’s what a relief organization should be.”

Andrés also points plenty of fingers. At President Trump. At the Federal Emergency Management Agency. At the American Red Cross. At Puerto Rican politicians who let their own people down. No one is spared Andrés’s critical eye, including the chef himself.

Castillo San Felipe del Morro

Visit Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Old San Juan Puerto Rico

Castillo San Felipe del Morro also known as Fuerte San Felipe del Morro or Castillo del Morro, is a 16th-century citadel located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

On the northeastern-most point of the islet of Old San Juan, Castillo San Felipe del Morro is named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. The fortification, also referred to as el Morro or ‘the promontory,’ was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish colonial port city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.

In 1983, the citadel was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in conjunction with the San Juan National Historic Site. Over two million visitors a year explore the castillo, making it one of Puerto Rico’s leading tourist attractions. Facing the structure, on the opposite side of the bay, a smaller fortification known as El Cañuelo complemented the castillo’s defense of the entrance to the bay.

Things to Do in Puerto Rico

When considering things to do in Puerto Rico, we enjoyed an interesting and free historical tour of the ASOCIACION DE FOTOPERIODISTAS DE PUERTO RICO installation, in August 2018.

We were particularly moved by the beautiful and poignant protest photos, and images of the Puerto Rican people bravely protesting authoritarian rule, and being tear-gassed for peacefully protesting.


 

Dr. Bailey K. Ashford

Dr. Bailey K. Ashford cured approximately 300,000 Puerto Rican’s (1/3 of Puerto Rico population) of Hookworm and saved their lives.  – Wiki

 
Colonel Bailey K. Ashford (September 28, 1873 – September 10, 1934) was an American physician who had a military career in the United States Army, and afterward taught full-time at the School of Tropical Medicine, which he helped establish in San Juan.

A pioneering physician in the treatment of anemia, while stationed in Puerto Rico Ashford organized and conducted a parasite treatment campaign against hookworm, which cured approximately 300,000 persons (one-third of the Puerto Rico population). This reduced the death rate from associated anemia by 90 percent. He was a founding member of the Puerto Rico Anemia Commission

 

Ashford Residence

In his honor, the main avenue in the San Juan, Puerto Rico district of “El Condado”, bears his name as does Ashford Presbyterian Community Hospital, also in Condado. His home in Condado, the Ashford Residence is being preserved and renovated and currently houses the ASOCIACION DE FOTOPERIODISTAS DE PUERTO RICO.

In 1941, The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, established the “Bailey K. Ashford Medal”. This is awarded for distinguished work in tropical medicine to a worker in his or her early or mid-career. The first person to receive the award was Lloyd E. Rozeboom. The medal is awarded every year, and more than one award may be given.

Dr. Ashford died on September 10, 1934, in his home in San Juan. His remains were interred in Puerto Rico National Cemetery in the city of Bayamón.
