February Eco-Tips for Valentine's Day
On Valentine's Day, choose to Love Your Mother (Earth)! Purchase sweets from a local food vendor in lieu of the overly packaged UN-recyclable hearts.
Give a “gift of the heart”, by thinking about what your loved one really wants, then provide a personalized coupon, whether that’s an automatic win in an argument or a month with no trash duties.
For a jewelry gift, shop local for beautiful hand crafted items. Scented goats milk soap is a lovely fragrance gift. And a fancy dinner at a restaurant that’s sourcing local is always welcome.
Instead of flowers shipped from South America, farmers markets are carrying bouquets of locally grown flowers.
