• Give organic roses – www.organicbouquet.com Organic
flowers are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals. It’s
healthier for the growers, pickers and florists who handle the stems.
It’s also healthier for the soil and doesn’t contribute
to water pollution. Ultimately, it’s healthier for both your
loved one and the planet.
• Enjoy organic wines – www.samswineshop.com Winemakers
that grow grapes organically or biodynamically are typically more
careful in the entire winemaking process. They have fewer chemicals
and are often “handmade” with love rather than bulk produced.
Happier plants produce better fruit.

the environment. Spending that green goodwill on incredibly delicious
handcrafted chocolates will score big points with your loved one.

your valentine. As our oceans are becoming over fished knowing which
delights of the sea are more plentiful and not endangered is more
important than ever. Buy your seafood from a trusted source that
has a commitment to the wellbeing of the sea.
