Have an Eco Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us again. What is Valentine’s about for you? Is it about overpriced chocolates, overpriced restaurants and over-sized cards ? Read on to find out how to celebrate this occasion in a more ethical fashion.
If you fancy a eco-weekend away in Ireland the Eco Award winning Glenribbeen Lodge in Co Waterford might be just for you. Based in a nice tranquil setting between Lismore and Cappaquinn you can relax and meditate by the fish pond and even pick your own fresh warm eggs for your breakfast.
A simple way to show your love that won’t cost you an arm and a leg is to go on a nice romantic walk. The Kells Girley Bog Eco Walk is a wonderful 3.5 Mile walk through forest and bog. Over the course of this walk you are bound to see a wonderful array of birdlife, plant and animal life.
Instead of buying those overpriced chocolates why not make your own organic chocolates with this Chocolate Making Kit. The kit holds everything you need to create your own decadent and delicious chocolate using simple instructions and magic ingredients.
Instead of buying those overpriced bouquets of roses which your loved one will watch die in front of their eyes why not consider handmade Fairtrade Felt Flowers. Available in Parma Violet, Passionate Pink and Tempting Turquoise.
Go with a Plantable Valentines Card this year made from recycled paper and embedded with high-grade, pure North American wildflower seeds
Finally tell your loved one that they “light up your life” with a cute Sun-Jar. Available in Yellow, Blue and Pink the Sunjar will make for a lovely candle alternative if you decide to have a romantic night in.
