Zero Waste Valentine’s Day
Give love, Not Waste
7 Ways to Celebrate a Zero Waste Valentine’s Day
- The Potted Plants
Avoid giving cut flowers that last only a few days and gets trashed after. Instead hand him/her a potted plant. If flowers are unavoidable pick flowers that last longer or can be planted.
- Plant a Tree
If you want something bigger than a potted plant or flower here’s a fun and unique idea: plant a new tree together and watch it grow over the years.
- Dim the lights
Want something romantic and eco-friendly at the same time? Conserve energy and add some romance by dimming the lights a bit.
- The Handmade Gift
Show your love through hard work and creativity. Many valentine crafts can be made from recycled materials. But be sure that your gift will be useful over the time and will not be junk immediately. Lastly, no wrapping or packaging.
- Say It from the Heart.
Instead of writing down your special message why not say it directly to the person you love. Imagine how much they would feel if they hear it from you.
- Let’s Go Digital
If you’re too shy to verbalize your words of love and appreciation then how about sending an e-card or posting on social media to let the whole wide world how much you love that person.
- Extend Your Love by Donating
If you think these tips do not apply to you because you’re broken hearted and you’re thinking of burning old stuffs, photographs and letters, please don’t. Donate or recycle them instead. Give them, a second chance.
