• Forget Fresh Cut Flowers: Resist the temptation to buy secular fresh cut roses or flower of your choice. They do not last as long as you remember, then end up in the garbage, adding to the amount of waste generated at the Valentine’s Day. If someone close to the heart of a flower, go with a potted plant or flowers such as tulips or hydrangeas can be enjoyed on Valentine’s Day, then planted outside when spring finally arrives.
