Can we make Valentine's Day Greener?
By Lynn Mymala
Grade 11

San Lorenzo, CA

Just a thought. It seems like Valentine's Day is another day when we buy material things or make cards for loved ones. I suppose that we shouldn't waste so much gift wrap for presents for one thing, and we can always recycle cards (but only the impersonal ones! I keep most of my cards. :]). You can also buy recycled gift wrap.

You can buy some online at: (most are $7.95 here) (most are $10)

Hope this helps some people. :]
