Portovert is Now WedVert

New WedVert logoI always thought the name Portovert was a little off. Sure it means gateway to green or door to green but how many people are going to understand that.

I think it was smart to change the name of the magazine to WedVert which pretty much means green wedding, which is what Portovert is all about. Now it just makes more sense for the common folk that couldn’t pronounce Portovert.

Another change is that WedVert has now partnered with WedShare and eco-designer Yoko Chapman to provide personal wedding website designs matched with the very first 100% carbon neutral wedding stationery line, VERT.
“Portovert LLC., publisher of and the WedVert print magazine,

Martha Stewart and the New York Post have described WedVert as a leader in
its efforts.”
