The significance of Valentine's Day has not changed since historical times - it is still a holiday of love and affection. However, with the development of ecological consciousness and interest in sustainability, many people are trying to approach Valentine's Day in a more environmentally friendly way. We bring you a few tips on how to do it.
1. Shop for handmade and natural products
Products made from natural materials such as wood, cotton, or paper are sustainable and environmentally friendly. These include our BajaBee food wraps, which you can buy in the Sale of the week. They are made from 100% cotton, beeswax, resin, and jojoba oil.
2. Use your imagination and make something by hand
Handmade gifts are personal and unique, made with love and care. They are ideal for those who want to express their originality. Make a postcard with a message or wish for your love. You can also involve children in the process, showing them that non-material gifts are beautiful.
3. Love goes through the stomach
Surprise your partner with a dinner, whether homemade, or walk to your favorite restaurant.
4. Enjoy your presence
Trips to nature, biking, or walks around the city are great ways to spend time together and be eco-friendly at the same time. Vouchers for wellness, cinema, or concerts are very trendy.
5. Sweet pralines in a BajaBee bag
Valentine's Day without sweets wouldn't count. Have you thought about buying pralines by weight at a local store and having them wrapped in a BajaBee wax bag? The carbon footprint of such chocolate is significantly less than that from Switzerland 🙂
6. Roses in February?
We know that a beautiful red rose pleases women, but have you ever thought about the fact that it traveled all the way from Kenya? Support a local grower instead, who can prepare a bouquet of dried flowers for you in February.
Remember, being environmentally friendly for just one day a year is not enough. Recall our tips throughout the year.
