Looking to be more eco-friendly next Valentine’s Day? Here are a few simple tips: instead of buying a pre-made Valentine’s Day card, make your own. Buy flowers that will last such as a potted plant or bulbs. Dim the lights to conserve energy and to set the mood. Enjoy the outdoors! Did you know you could “recycle” your Valentine’s Day flowers? You can donate the bouquet to a local hospital, hospice, or church. Also, you can take the flower petals and incorporate them into a bath or into another romantic evening. Lastly, you can embellish gifts and letters with dried or fresh flower petals.
