Zero Waste Valentine's Day

Zero Waste Valentine's Day

I'm not one to celebrate Valentine's Day but I can see the appeal if you're the romantic type.  While it's not an occasion I feel the desire to participate in, I do have some suggestions for making your Valentine celebrations a little more eco-friendly.  Avoiding waste on this day is just as important as any other and thankfully it's relatively easy to do if you think ahead.

Zero Waste Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Valentine's Day gifts wouldn't be all that different from any other type of gift, except with maybe a few more chocolates and perhaps a little extra wine with dinner.  Handmade and homemade gifts are an excellent way to gift something meaningful while sidestepping the waste that comes with pre-prepared wrapped goods.  Here are some low waste gift ideas:
