Packaging is a big part of plastic pollution, and on Valentine’s Day, it is no different. Cut flowers are wrapped in clear plastic and small candies are packaged in plastic wrappers. Whether you are preparing for your child’s Valentine’s Day activities at school or excited to surprise a loved one, you can eliminate plastic from your purchases. Here are just a few tips for a plastic-free V-Day.
– Vist local candy shops to get your holiday treats plastic free. You will support local businesses and give some really good chocolate.
– Make your own Valentine’s Day cards. Seems like a lot of work, but nobiggie.net has some great ideas for sweethearts, and you can simplify them for kids.
– Instead of cut flowers, give the gift of a plant. Spring isn’t far away, so go native and make it a plant you can put in your yard.
