Valentine's Day is all about chocolates, flowers and cards with sweet nothings scribbled in them. It also means a huge amount of energy and carbon output from the production and transportation of all of that stuff. Why not make your gifts a little greener this year this year by purchasing more sustainable treats for your sweet?
From organic and fair trade chocolates, homemade treats (like these decadent chocolate rum truffles), organic and Fair Trade flowers, and recycled or conflict-free jewelry — the possibilities of Earth-friendly gifts are endless. I'm sure your loved ones will appreciate the thought and effort behind these as well. So go green and get creative this Valentine's Day!
