This is the very FIRST episode of the Greed for Ilm Podcast! I decided to start by talking about Valentines Day and how it isn’t that lovely of a day in other parts of the world. The truth behind how we get our roses, chocolates and diamonds can be disturbing. Of course, it’s only disturbing to a soul that cares. We tend to believe, “out of sight, out of mind” until that specific thing happens to ourselves or someone we love and care for. You should “love for yourself, what you love for your brother.”
In addition, in this episode you’ll find out about:
- People negatively effected by Valentine’s Day.
- Child labor
- Cancer causing flowers
- Stats discussed in this episode can be found at the following: Hallmark, and Roses
*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. You won’t have to worry about allowing carcinogens into your house and you will be helping the environment.
