Valentine's Day is another one of those over commercialized holidays where companies try to get you to spend as much money as your bank account will allow (and then some). This also means a huge amount of energy and carbon output from the production and shipping of all those gifts. Why not make it a little greener this year this year by purchasing (or making) more sustainable treats for your sweet?

From organic and fair trade chocolates, homemade treats (like these decadent chocolate rum truffles), whole trade roses, and recycled/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!
