Valentine’s Day is getting closer. As we are reminded of the importance of giving and receiving love, let’s also give love to the environment.

Here are some ideas for a more sustainable Valentine’s Day – that also apply to any other time you want to spend some time together with your loved one in a conscious, respectful way.

1. PLAN A SUSTAINABLE GETAWAY

If the weather’s nice, why not grab some of your favourite foods and head to the nearest park together for a picnic?

Or maybe take a bike ride through the nearest beach or park?

What about a walk in the nearest mountains? 

2. PLANT SOME FLOWERS

Flowers – so traditionally typical of Valentine’s Day – are always a good idea.

This time, you can try planting some flowers instead of picking them up at your local plant shop. Find a plant that can fit your lifestyle, get informed about its soil, care and maintenance and make them last a long time.

3. SHOP IN LOCAL AND ZERO WASTE SHOPS

There is no greater way to show love and compromise than trying to reduce unnecessary waste.

Visit the closest local markets, buy some fresh, local products and, if possible, try to avoid plastic packaging or bring your own. 

4. COOK TOGETHER

Cooking together is a nice way to celebrate.

Look for a good recipe or follow an exciting recommendation and spend some time together while making it true, giving yourselves the chance to share the whole process and try new things.
