ECO-FRIENDLY VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR PLANET LOVERS
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and before we get into our Valentine’s Day gift ideas, let’s take a minute to remember what this date is actually all about, and that’s celebrating love. So, whether you are single or coupled up, if you stay in or go out, receive a box of chocolates, a bunch of cut flowers from the gas station, or nothing at all… take a moment on the 14th of Feb to feel gratitude for all that you love. And (yeah, you knew this was coming) that might include your family, friends, cats (just me!?), and possibly your partner too, but don’t forget to spare a thought for your OG / day one / first love… Planet Earth!
So when you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, make sure it’s ethical, cruelty-free, made with a low environmental impact and that’s it’s guaranteed to have a long and happy future with the receiver. Always here to make shopping better easy for you, we’ve curated some of our favourite sustainable Valentine’s Day gifts for those who want to show a bit of love to their partner, and the planet.
