Show Love to Our Planet this Valentine’s Day!

Let’s show some love to our planet this Valentine’s Day! It’s time to break the traditions of gifting store bought cards, roses, boxes of chocolate, and stuffed teddy bears. All of these pose serious sustainability threats on our environment just from the production of the products alone (not even factoring in the tons of waste associated with this day).

So what is the solution to celebrating this holiday?

Do not fret! There are multiple ways to “go green”, so to speak, for Valentine’s Day. Some eco-friendly gift ideas include gifting a potted plant, fair trade chocolate or jewelry, a soy candle, or even handmade soap. You can always make a gift yourself or re-gift items you may have just laying around your house. A huge part of Valentine’s Day includes going out to eat. If you are set on going out, try eating and supporting local businesses. One of the most sustainable things you could do on this day would be preparing a romantic dinner at home. This would truly create an intimate atmosphere for you and your loved ones, and the planet would love you for it!

Here are some links to fun craft ideas that you can gift this Valentine's Day:
