Your eco-cutie deserves only the best this Valentine’s Day. What better way to say I love you than with a sexy splurge of a gift that’s not just romantic, but sustainable too?! Here are some of our best recommendations for great green gifts for the most romantic day of the year.
ORGANIC FLOWERS FROM ORGANIC BOUQUET We much prefer living plants to cut flowers – they provide the oxygen that we breathe and last a lot longer as well. But if you’re a sucker for long-stemmed roses or other bouquet options, there are some organic flower companies like Organic Bouquet. Or, make a last minute run to your local farmers market. We must say, though, that at $23 for a long stemmed rose, a potted plant is much cheaper, greener and better in every way.
ECO-FRIENDLY & CONFLICT FREE GEMS Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but eco-jewelry is the green girl’s soulmate. Green Karat is a great option if you’re in the market for a gorgeous jewel with a responsible slant. + Greenkarat
