Celebrate Valentines Day the Organic Way

Roses, lingerie, and chocolates are the quintessential presents for loved ones on Valentine's Day, but the conventional production of these gifts is anything but sweet for the environment and the workers who produce them. This Valentine's Day, consumers have more choices available to send a true gift of love by purchasing organic versions of these classics, honoring both the environment and their beloved.

In addition to organic practices being better for the environment and those who grow and produce flowers, chocolate, and fabric such as cotton, the organic versions of these treats are some of the highest quality available. According to many, organic flowers are more fragrant and last longer than their conventional counterparts, and the organic chocolates being produced today are some of the finest tasting in the world.

Conventional flawless flowers are grown in massive greenhouses that utilize large quantities of pesticides. Organic flowers are grown without the use of toxic and persistent chemicals. That's better for the surrounding environment and farm workers, as well as the end recipient who can thoroughly enjoy the wonderful scents of an organic bouquet.

Organic ingredients must be certified, and no ingredients can be genetically modified. Now consumers can give a kiss to the Earth along with a kiss to their loved ones by purchasing organic flowers, chocolate and lingerie. It's a good way to treat the special person in your life and honor the planet, the way Mother Nature intended.
