Celebrate Valentine's Day Holistically

By: Suzanne Taylor
Examiner.com

Last week I wrote about Environmentally friendly Valentine's Day cards for kids, so I thought it only fair that I suggest some eco-friendly choices adults can make. First, instead of a traditional greeting card that uses paper and resources, how about an e-card? Hallmark has a wide selection of 99cent e-cards, and other sites offer free trials that allow you to send e-cards without spending a penny.

Do you usually send or give flowers to your significant other on Valentine's Day? How about a potted plant, or a pot of herbs? Or, choose flowers that are organically grown such as those found at OrganicBouquet.com or Whole Foods/Harry's.

If your sweetie would prefer chocolate, consider Newman's Own Organic Chocolate or Green & Black's , both of which use organic ingredients and have certified fair trade chocolate. They're both available in a wide variety of stores including Publix and Target.

Here in the Taylor household, we've decided that we have enough stuff, so we will be celebrating Valentine's Day with acupuncture and a workout at the Y!
