Did you send that “special someone” a gift yet? If not, there’s still time!
Show your loved ones that you are thinking of them and the environment by going green!
~ Send your loved ones e-cards. This way they can receive them anytime, anywhere.
~ If you prefer sending a card other than an e-card, make sure the card is made from tree-free or recycled paper. Usually the cards will mention this on the back.
~ Show them how much you care by giving them perfumes made from natural ingredients.
~ Eco-friendly jewelry made from metals, gemstones, and wood are sure to be a big hit this Valentine’s Day. Or, save money and buy pre-owned jewels. If you are planning on proposing, think of buying an eco-friendly wedding ring.
~ Gift cards or gift certificates to health food stores or health spas are very thoughtful and much needed!
~ Capture the beauty of the earth by taking a romantic stroll through the park or touring a wildlife reserve or museum.
~ For those wanting to give flowers or make a romantic dinner this evening, support your local farms, produce stands, and flower shops by shopping local. Don’t forget to buy organic fruits and vegetables! Earth-friendly candles and a bottle of organic wine will complement your romantic setting beautifully!
~ If you prefer to dine out this evening, save gas and dine locally.
~ For a thoughtful but sexy gift, buy lingerie made from organic, silk, or bamboo.
~ Organic or Fair Trade chocolate is a perfect gift for the chocolate lover in your life.
~ Instead of buying a gift for that special someone, why not donate to a good cause in that person’s name? Choose a charity or cause that they believe in.
~ My personal favorite gift of all time…..let your loved one feel like a queen for the day and hire a professional green cleaning company to come in and clean your home!
However you choose to celebrate this special day today, keep your environment in mind by going green!
