I can hear you guys now. “Valentine’s is just a made up holiday.” I must say the history of Saint Valentine’s Day is murky indeed, and dates it back a lot further than I thought – to 270 AD. At any rate, it evolved into a day that is meant to celebrate love and affection.
Give chocolate and give the landfill a rest.
The gift of chocolates probably won’t end up in the landfill, but here’s an easy idea for a greener Valentine’s Day: According to the Greeting Card Association, we send an estimated 1 billion Valentine’s cards each year. Just think of it, by doing something amazingly simple as sending an e-card or a greeting on recycled paper, together we could make a huge difference. Be a saint this Valentine’s Day and think green instead of red.
