Have a Green Valentine’s Day

While Valentine’s Day has been a time to show love to a special person in your life, the holiday has not been traditionally considered to be earth friendly. Advertisers try to convince consumers that their item will ensure everlasting happiness with no concern for the environmental impact of their products. If you want to take part in the festivities, while continuing to reduce your impact on the earth, here are some options to consider in lieu of traditional valentine’s gifts.

Cards
There are many products out in the market made with recycled material. These are a great alternative to buying newly made greeting cards. However, take an extra step and create your own card out of recycled materials. Many things we use on a daily basis can be converted into cards with a little ingenuity, like FedEx envelopes and food boxes. Be creative with your Valentine’s greeting. Your special someone will appreciate the thoughtfulness and time you spend on handmade creation. Also, e-Cards are always a good option to consider.

Noritake Colorwave stoneware is a good choice in dinnerware. They come in a variety of hues to match anyone’s dining room décor and are microwave, oven and dishwasher safe. Present your loved one with a romantic dinner basket containing the Raspberry Colorwave dishes and a bottle or organic locally made wine, if available, with dinner waiting in the kitchen for a gift your sweetheart won’t soon forget.

Flowers
If you have a backyard garden of your own, a handpicked flower in a simple glass vase would be a lovely sentiment to present to your Valentine. If you don’t have your own garden, instead of bouquets of dying flowers, consider giving a living plant, a small herb garden or seeds to begin one themselves. When choosing a plant, avoid those that are poisonous to pets if your reci...
