Love is sweet, but it often leads us to do some foolish things. Take flowers, for instance. They’re lovely. They’re subtle symbols of sex. They’re a token of affection, especially given how much they cost when you buy them from a florist.
More often than not, however, those flowers are also poison – coated with pesticides. Many flowers, including the traditional Valentine’s Day red roses, are shipped to the United States from overseas, and are coated with pesticides so deadly that they’re illegal when used within our borders.
Those pesticides not only poison the land where the flowers are grown, but they poison the workers who pick and ship the flowers to you. They might even give a small dose of poison to your very own sweetie when she sniffs them and tells you how lovely they are.
It’s enough to dampen even the most romantic moods.
Don’t let your Valentine’s Day go sour over the issue of poison roses this Valentine’s Day. Go ahead and give flowers, but do it with a clear conscience. Be smart, be sweet, and head on over to Organic Bouquet, where you can buy, well, an organic bouquet.
