Eco Ideas: "Green" Valentine's Day

By: Alicia Colina-Ashby
Etsy Dallas Blog

Each year at Valentine's Day there are millions of cards bought, given, mailed and received. That's a heck of a lot of virgin paper that eventually goes to the land fill. Instead, read the back of cards before purchasing - look for cards that are FSC certified or that contain post consumer paper. By doing this, you are purchasing paper products that are recycled or made from trees harvested by entities that have a tree replanting program. This helps us all be a little easier on the earth.

Flower giving is wide spread tradition on Valentine's Day. Check out the beautiful organic flowers available at Organic Bouquet and be sure to compost them after you've enjoyed them. Their flowers are sustainably grown and certified organic. They have several bouquets available that donate 5% of the purchase price to charity. A definite win-win. Chocolate is another popular gift for Valentine's Day. This year try giving Endagered Species chocolates which are ethically traded, kosher and come in a reusable box not to mention delicious.
