Valentine’s Day is coming up - but how do you make this indulgent holiday affordable, romantic, and not too heavy on the carbon footprint? Can you enjoy the flowers, perfumes, and candles without green guilt? Ed and Rachelle share their favorite ideas for eco and wallet-friendly gifts such as homemade cards and used jewelry. They also suggest how to celebrate with a fun, thoughtful, and cheap date that won’t harm the environment, and debate why Ed should hire a limousine on date night to help the planet.
