Green Your Valentine’s Day: Rethink Romantic Gifts
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.
