Thank you for checking out our registry! We know that some of these prices are pretty high for the items with which they are associated. This is because we are trying to live as sustainably, ecologically friendly, and fair trade as possible - unfortunately, our economy (and much of the world's) does not make these things as cheap as those that are bad for the environment (and humans!). We appreciate anything that you choose to give us (whether it's on our registry or not). Enjoy browsing our nesting plans!
