Green Your Valentine’s Day: Rethink Romantic Gifts

Romantic gifts Trying to impress your sweetie for Valentine’s Day but don’t want to break the earth’s heart? This week we’re letting you know how to be romantic and green.

Tip #3: Rethink Romantic Gifts

We know, we know: Valentine’s Day is a consumerist holiday invented by greeting-card companies, jewelers and chocolatiers. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyed responsibly and in a giving spirit. This year, consider giving e-cards instead of paper cards, antique or recycled jewelry, ethical chocolate, organic (or home-grown) flowers, and digital playlists instead of packaged CDs. If you must wrap your gift, consider planet-friendly options.
