Valentine’s Day is coming.
Thinking of flowers? Please use locally grown flowers instead of imported cut flowers for any occasion. There are many reasons to do so. Imported cut flowers have a huge carbon footprint, use large amounts of water, fertilizers and pesticides that in many countries are not controlled.
(I asked a woman in charge of a local Costco’s cut flower display where the flowers came from. Columbia was her answer. She was not pleased either.)
Support your local businesses and farms.
This video does a great job of explaining why imported cut flowers are a bad idea.
