Valentine’s Day is a sweet time for couples, but is often associated with the more negative elements of luxury and consumerism. Between cut flowers and irresponsibly-mined diamonds, the excessive consumption of the holiday can lean towards damaging — rather than preserving the earth. We want you to enjoy Valentine’s Day in an eco-responsible manner this year, which is why we have put together a list of romantic green goodies that are sure to heat up your Valentine’s Day without compromising the environment.
Tell that special someone just how much you care with these cute eco-friendly cards made of reclaimed and recycled materials. The company also produces notebooks and other recycled paper goods where you can perfect your prose to woo your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate is a lot like love: bittersweet.

Or you can just enjoy the fair-trade, organic qualities of this ethically-made chocolate.
There’s something unmistakably sweet about a bouquet of pink roses.

And these sustainably-harvested, fair-trade flowers from organicbouquet.com are sure to stir the same memories in your special gal’s heart.
