Green isn’t the most common color associated with Valentine’s Day, but it doesn’t mean you can’t think green when planning your celebration.

Last year, the Huffington Post came out with a fantastic list of Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas that are both romantic and good for the planet – from organic flower delivery (rather than those raised with tons of toxic pesticides), locally made “repurposed” jewelry (rather than those derived from questionable practices) and eco-friendly, fair trade chocolate (rather than chocolate harvested in dangerous working conditions) to “adopting” an animal living in a sanctuary (rather than giving a stuffed animal made with chemical-laden fabrics), taking a cooking class, or choosing plants from the nursery to put in your garden come spring. Choosing eco-friendly Valentine’s Day options takes just a bit more time – the first time – and is a great way to share the love a bit further.
