Ten lovable eco-actions you can take this Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day too much, but if you do, I hope you’re enjoying some Fair Trade chocolate and other sweet times today. If you want to go all out, why not send the earth (or someone else) a Valentine with some green action steps…

  • Make it a goal to eat three healthy and greener meals each week. It’s not a lot of work, but this is a small change that can improve your family’s health and help keep the planet healthy at the same time.
  • If you’re going out tonight, or any night this week, consider leaving the car at home and take more emission-friendly public transportation or even (gasp) your bikes. Not dating much? Make the kids walk to school. It’s not THAT cold and they’ll be healthier for it, plus you get to save on gas.
  • Tonight, turn off the TV and computers. Play a board game or go on an evening walk with your family instead. Less power-use, more family time. Win-win.
  • After family time, put the kids to bed, break open a bottle of organic wine or bubbly (that you of course picked up earlier today) and hang with your partner.

    I love Miyazaki. I think ‘Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind’ is also pretty green.
    My local library has a decent DVD selection. And borrowed several Miyazaki movies from them. It’s a cheaper (and greener) way to discover new movies.
