A Green Valentine’s Day

A Green Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a tradition that has been celebrated for hundreds of years. The oldest known paper Valentine’s card is from the 1400’s and housed in the British Museum.  However, today the pressure of presenting your loved one with a dramatic (and often expensive) gift comes from a marketing beast that is incapable of appreciating the simple romantic gestures of yesteryear.

But, doing something nice for those you love can be thoughtful and fun.  And there are still ways to be considerate of the environment when giving gifts.   One idea is buying locally made handcrafted edible treats as presents.
