Hearts and Chocolate

  1. Treat your love to sustainably produced chocolate. Farmed on over 18 million acres of tropical land, cocoa provides a livelihood for some 40 million people. Make sure the chocolate you buy contains cocoa grown in a way that protects forests and helps cocoa farming communities thrive. Find a list of chocolates that feature the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ green frog seal via Shop the Frog.
  2. Surprise your Valentine with a beautiful bouquet, but make sure it was not grown at the expense of the environment. Flowers that bear the green frog seal were grown on farms that curb deforestation, conserve soil and water, provide habitat for wildlife and protect the rights and well-being of farm workers. You can find certified blooms at Whole Foods Market, Sam’s Club, Walmart and Costco.
  3. Rekindle your love on a romantic get-away. Find stunning and sustainable destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean on SustainableTrip.org, a Rainforest Alliance website, which features tourism businesses that conserve natural resources, protect plants and wildlife and support local communities.
