6 Ethical, Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Gifts
Looking to give your sweetheart a Valentine’s Day gift that she can truly feel good about? Of course you are! Here are our favorite eco-friendly gift ideas:
Chic vegan shoes: A pair of Tom’s classic slip-ons are a modern wardrobe essential, and it’s a significant bonus that for every pair purchased the company donates a pair to somebody in need. The vegan Snow Leopard shoes are made without leather and come in stylish and versatile leopard print.
Chocolate with a conscience: Not just any sweet treats, John and Kira’s chocolates are filled with organic, fair trade or socially conscious ingredients like mint grown at inner city Philadelphia school gardens. The Hearts and Butterflies box is certain to make a chocoholic Valentine swoon.
Earth-friendly vino: Toast each other with wine produced without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The Organic Wine Company has a vast selection sure to satisfy the most discriminating palates.
Natural pampering: Any boho beauty will love luxurious skincare from Tata Harper, which is made with 100% natural ingredients, many grown on Harper’s organic farm in Vermont. The Natural Skincare Starter Kit contains ten mini vials of skin essentials.
Green thumb necessities: If your sweetie likes just-picked produce but doesn’t have a lot of open space to grow it on, she’ll love a set of seeds perfectly suited to gardening in containers or other small spaces. The organic Urban Seed Collection from Flora Grubb Gardens contains future tomatoes, lettuce, basil, beets, carrots, spinach and summer squash.
Jewelry with heart: Express your commitment to your relationship and your values with an infinity pendant crafted from recycled silver, recycled gold, or embellished with ethically sourced pavé diamonds. Another romantic option: A heart pendant made of recycled silver and featuring a glittering beyond conflict-free diamond. And you can never go wrong with diamond stud earrings.
