Ideas for a Greener Valentine’s Month

The month of February is all about spoiling our partners and reminding them how much we care – but what about our earth? This Valentine’s Month, we at Delphis Eco have a few suggestions that will help you to make a difference and show our neglected planet the love that it deserves!

Recycle

Avoid simply chucking those old chocolate boxes, cards and love letters into the regular rubbish bin – these items can be easily recycled! Not sure how to get started? Visit www.recycling.co.za for all of the information that you need to know. The website also provides you with valuable contact details for companies that can help you to recycle everything from cans and paper to plastic and aerosols… and you can even make some money out of it too!

Start Compost Gardening

Looking for something different that you and your honey can enjoy doing together? Why not take up gardening and create something beautiful out of your love? Take it one step further and start your very own compost heap! You can do so by investing in a compost bin and using old food scraps and other biodegradable sources to fertilise the soil. There are many ways in which to start compost gardening, so be sure to do your research beforehand!

Get Out More

Snuggling on the couch and watching TV is just about every couple’s favourite pastime. So why not do the opposite and save on energy this month by making an effort to get out into nature more? Go for a hike, take the dogs for a walk more frequently than usual, visit the Botanical Gardens, or even plan a romantic picnic outdoors – the options are endless… and you’ll be making both your special someone and the earth a lot happier in the process!

Give an Eco-Friendly Gift

Get your loved one an eco-friendly gift instead of traditional teddies and choccies! We recommend items like a Kindle, seed packets, potted herbs and organic beauty essentials. Not only are these gift ideas perfectly suited to Valentine’s Day, but they also work well for birthdays, Christmas or even as ‘just because I love you’ presents.

Change Your Cleaning Products

We think you’ll agree that nothing kills the mood quite like the strong stench of cleaning chemicals! Keep your home smelling fresh and sweet by switching to eco-friendly cleaning products, like the ones offered to you by Delphis Eco. Not only do they smell a lot more pleasant, but they are also much safer to use and are a lot kinder to the environment.
