It is reported, that America’s shoppers spend around 2$ billion on Valentine Day only on flowers, most of the roses, being shipped from Latin America, especially Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Peru. To ship all this amount of flowers in time for Valentine Day, additional cargo planes are being scheduled, contributing greatly to the carbon footprint. Once the flowers arrive to the USA, they are fashioned in bouquets and shipped all over the country in refrigerated delivery trucks. As roses need to be kept cool every step of the way, the trucks are naturally burning more fuel to provide power to refrigerator, and as a result causing more greenhouse emissions.
What’s the solution?
Choosing an alternative, sustainable gifts, that will show care and attention to a partner’s taste even better than a bouquet of flowers can. Made with Respect prepared a curated selection of ethical items that care for loved ones, as well as the Planet.
