This Valentine’s Day, give your love something eco-friendly — a bouquet of artful recycled newspaper roses! While cut flowers are pretty for a fleeting moment, they are wasteful and die quickly. These delicate paper roses stay fresh forever, and they show your sweetheart that you not only love him or her, but also Mother Earth! The roses make a unique Valentine gift and also benefit the Lower East Side Girls Club.

Sure, everyone loves flowers, but a dozen red roses is almost expected for Valentine’s Day. Show your creativity while supporting a great organization, and order one dozen or a half dozen delicate recycled newspaper roses that will last all year. The pesticide free paper flowers come in a gift box, and with a sweet treat- a certified Fair Trade organic chocolate bar. Six roses costs $20 and a full dozen costs $30. You can find order and pricing information here.

Flowers can be picked up at the Lower Eastside Girls Club at 56 East 1st Street, but hurry! Orders close on February 11th!
