Floral Bouquets: A Valentine's No-No

It seems the Al Gore crowd has put the kibosh on having flowers delivered to your sweetie this Valentine's Day. Sending a biodegradable natural resource just isn't environmentally friendly enough...

"Air freighting flowers half way round the world contributes to global warming." Between the flight and the delivery van, a sweet gesture could result in emanate doom!

"Vicky Hird, of Friends of the Earth, said: "We don't want to be killjoys because receiving flowers can be lovely but why not grow your own gift?" (source)

I guess The Man can remain in the Environmentalists' good graces...I asked for the red Kitchen Aid mixer. That's about as romantic as I get ;)
