Love your mother!
Show your love for our planet as you celebrate this Valentines Day! Choose cards made of recycled or sustainably harvested paper. Giving chocolate or flowers? Look for sustainably produced, fair trade options, ideally from a locally owned vendor. Or skip the cut flowers and give a card promising to take your loved one to a native plant nursery this spring to choose something for the garden or patio. See LCAN Network members Dropseed Nursery and Idlewild.
