Love is in the air! As Valentine's Day or Galentine's Day is right around the corner, we often forget about someone truly special. We're talkin' about our often overlooked Valentine, Earth!
Valentine’s Day is a multi-billion-dollar industry, with the United States dropping about $27 billion to celebrate love each year. That means we spend billions annually on throwaway gifts, like balloons, teddy bears, decorations, and cards with almost all of them ending up in the landfill — coated in glitter, metallic effects, and laminated in plastic.
All this lovin' unfortunately doesn't show much love to the Earth, which really does need some compassion as we face threats like climate change. Fortunately, we've gathered some easy tips to love the planet this Valentine's Day!
