Recycled Valentine's card from last year (click here for an example on how to do it)

*Reduce: *
Buy less small packages. I know that the individually wrapped packages and drinks are convenient, but they are wasteful. Buying in bulk saves you money and has less packaging. If you really like the idea of individually wrapped servings, simply use small, reusable containers to divide up the bulk product.

This Valentine's Day or Easter, *send an e-card instead of a paper one* -Here is the free site that I use: http://www.123greetings.com/events/valentines_day/

"Waste not, want not"
