Gallery: A Greener Valentine’s Day: Sustainable Splurges

 

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.

$39.95 and up from Organic Bouquet

    Any little bit of help and guidance they can get is awesome!

    I think this is a great posting, especially for those green toddlers out there who still dive back into consumerism. Any little bit of help and guidance they can get is awesome!

    Me too – except instead of being anti-consumerism I’m anti-gender-dichotomies. Why split the goodies up between boys and girls? Everyone loves most of this stuff!

    Although I absolutely apprciate the green gagdetry I must say, I am a bit dissappointed that you would support the consumerism that surrounds hollidays like Valentine’s Day by suggesting we buy buy buy something for our sweetie. I do enjoy your site completely, my comments are only constructive criticism.
    Thanks.
