Preserving green plants?

Are there methods for protecting collected green
plants from fading? I have a friend who would like
to use green plant parts as a material of handicrafts
and would like to keep them green.

Is there some kind of active degradation of cholorophyll
involved in the fading process or is it just about effects
of UV radiation, oxidation, etc.?

Any suggestions are appreciated but due to the application
simple, cheap and non-toxic methods would be most suitable
(well, that can probably be said of any application...).

Please reply by e-mail as I'm not a regular visitor in
this newsgroup.
