HAPPY GREEN VALENTINES DAY!

Whether you love it or hate it, today is Valentine’s day . Some may argue the holiday is a Hallmark fabrication to encourage consumption of useless goods, but whatever your thoughts, its a nice day to show your loved ones that you care and even treat yourself to some love as well. Of course, you can easily do all of this without fancy jewelry or chocolates or flowers. The best gifts come from the heart, and simply cooking a special dinner for someone would make a much appreciated treat. If you do want to go the route of more traditional gifts, here are some of our green suggestions:
Escape the cheesy Hallmark monopoly and make your own! The personal touch will go a long way with friends and loved ones who are tired of cliche Valentines day lines. And even for the artistically-impaired, never fear. As the old adage goes, it’s the thought that counts. Really.
We love organic options like Vere Goods , Dagoba , and Green & Black . Fortunately for you last minute shoppers, you can find these varieties at most local gourmet/health food stores. Green & Black’s even has a store locator  function on their website.
We’ll talk a bit more about this later – but look to eco-minded jewelers like GreenKarat  for environmentally friendly fancy jewelry.
