Forget The Roses. This Year, Give A Bouquet Of Trees!
Buying Valentine flowers for your loved ones? Why not give a bouquet of a different sort: Show your love this holiday by giving the everlasting gift of trees.
Cut flowers are beautiful, but consider the impact—the majority of flowers sold in the U.S. each year are imported, with most grown thousands of miles away. Between the chemicals needed to preserve the flowers, the carbon footprint required to fly them to your market, and the plastics used in wrapping, those flowers aren’t smelling quite as sweet.
It’s estimated that we’ll spend about $2 billion dollars on flowers this Valentine’s Day. Through the $1 for one tree model of the Canopy Project, those dollars could be planting 2 billion trees across the globe.
What better way to recognize someone you love than by dedicating a living tree in their honor? Give a gift today and send a Valentine's Day ecard designed by Earth Day Network.
