I started this podcast back on Valentines Day of 2013 (yes, it’s been 3 years since I started this podcast!). I called the very first podcast episode, “Stupid Valentines Day.” I did not name it that because I think Valentine’s Day is stupid. I named it that because I think the marketing machine behind the “Valentine Day industrial complex” is doing an absolutely cunning job at hiding the horrible facts. The average person doesn’t know the shocking truth behind the procurement of their beautiful roses, delicious chocolates or “bling bling” diamonds.
Topics Mentioned In This Episode:
- What is “Fair Trade“?
- Child labor
- Can roses causes cancer?
- Where to buy organic, fair-trade roses and chocolates
- Cut Flowers: Major Source of Toxic Pesticides
- Where roses come from?
- Dark Side of Valentines Day
- Organic Bouquet
*Personal recommendation: I highly recommend purchasing your spouse flowers or gifts from Organic Bouquet. They are a Fair Trade company that sells only organic products. I have purchased flowers from them before and highly recommend them!
