You can make a difference with your pocket book. I recommend choosing Valentine's Day gifts that are made responsibly and sustainably. Of course I am going to offer up our delicious Rich Rainforest Dark Gourmet Fudge from Earth's Sweet Pleasures
, but I would also like to add two gift companies that carry all natural, organic and fair-trade products: It's Only Natural Gifts
and Kate's Caring Gifts
. There are also many organizations and charities that you can donate to in honor of your loved one. For example, support The Rainforest Alliance
, an organization that helps to keep our rainforests alive, and this is where the cacao farmers are. Also, if you are concerned about human welfare, Mercy Corps
is one of the best organizations I've found. They are on the ground in Haiti right now. You can also plant a tree for your loved one. Visit the Arbor Day Foundation
. The lists go on and on, but these are three of my favorites. You can visit my blog Chocolate Fudge Cafe
for more ideas.
