Perhaps more than ever, it's crucial to enjoy the good moments of the year and spend as much time as possible with loved ones. Valentine's Day is a wonderful time to express your love and appreciation to your loved ones while also showing yourself some self love and kindness.
This is the ideal opportunity to express your love, gratitude, and appreciation, regardless of whether you're in a committed relationship, dating someone new, or simply wanting to show yourself some love.
But why is it important that we start to shop plastic free and sustainable valentine's day gifts? Valentine's Day is rife with unsustainable conventions, from foil balloons that don't break down to bouquets of flowers that will inevitably need to be thrown away. In fact, February 14, by itself, represents an increase of 9 million kilograms of CO2, plus everything “normally” released into our atmosphere.
Another reason Valentine's Day is so unsustainable is because so many products are made exclusively for it, frequently as novelty items, and have little use the rest of the year. Due to this, more individuals discard gifts after receiving them, increasing the amount of waste generated and aggravating the climate situation.
If you're in need of some ethical Valentine's day gifts have a look at our planet friendly and vegan friendly gift ideas below!
Are sustainable Valentine's day gifts possible?
It shouldn't be necessary to sacrifice spending time with your loved one in order to live sustainably. You can stay away from unsustainable customs and think of more meaningful ways to observe Valentine's Day this year by adopting a more conscious and positive attitude towards the occasion.
You're already on course for a much more sustainable Valentine's Day if you give up the one-day novelty items, refrain from buying excessive amounts, and think carefully about something your sweetheart would enjoy and keep for a very long time!

How can I be eco-friendly on Valentine's Day?
There are various methods to accomplish this in a way that is ethical, sustainable, and Earth-friendly. A few ideas to gift ethically on Valentine's Day include fair trade chocolates, sustainable jewellery, and plants or seeds.
