Valentine's Day is the time to show some love to family and friends, but the impact on the environment is not quite as warm and fuzzy.
In the U.S. Valentine's Day revelers go through as many as 36 million heart-shaped boxes, 180 million greeting cards, and 58 million pounds of chocolate. The result is a lot of waste and unnecessary emissions.
We aren't here to bum you out by squashing your favorite Valentine’s Day traditions. Instead, we’ve asked our resident Guru of Green, Director of Sustainability Danielle Jezienicki, to offer up some eco-friendly Valentine’s Day swaps so you can love your people and your planet this February.
