BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.

  1. I dont think she did appreciate my eco ethics – think she thought I was bonkers. Note it was me buying the flower – just to prove you could have a plastic free valentines day flower. My husband went plastic free by bringing me tea and toast – said it was a post consumer sign of love. Since he has realised that being green can save you lots of money he has embraced it with a passion.

  2. I expect the florist was trying to go with your eco-ethos by not using newly made paper. If I was your DH I’d have just trashed the paper before giving you the flower.
    Good work on the Amaryllis – roses show no imagination, I think!
    Personally I vehemently ignore Valentine’s. We celebrate on at least 2 other evenings of the year instead of being told when to by Hallmark ;o)
