Green Your Valentine’s Day: Sweet Things

Chocolate heart This Valentine’s Day, don’t forget about Mother Earth. Our tips this week tell you how to make her feel cared for even while you’re tending to the other loves of your life. 

Tip #3: Choose chocolate consciously.

Valentine’s Day is a veritable boon for chocolate companies. Ensure that you’re supporting the most responsible confectioners by buying organic, local, or shade-grown. And if you can, resist the convenience of that frilly heart-shaped box with all those individual paper wrappings tucked into a plastic mold. Instead, go for a less packaged (but just as romantic) option.

Tell us: What’s your favorite brand of eco-chocolate?
