4 ways to make the most of Valentine’s Day 2021
That romantic night out might not come to fruition this year, but there are so many ways to spread the love this February 14th – right from the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day with your BFF, spoiling your significant other with delicious goodies, or giving yourself some much deserved TLC, Fairtrade America is here to help plan the perfect day.
By purchasing Fairtrade certified products from sustainable brands, you’re not just sharing the love with people in your life who matter most. You’re also ensuring the farmers and workers behind these products get a fair deal for their hard work.
Check out these delicious Valentine's Day recommendations to support the fair trade movement in creating a more equitable world.
Start the day off with an ethical breakfast
Did someone say breakfast in bed? Coliman Fairtrade bananas and Nature’s Path Love Crunch make the ultimate power couple for a nutritious morning treat. Try flavors ranging from Espresso Vanilla Cream Granola to Salted Caramel Pretzel Granola.
Ben and Jerry will always find time to keep me company on Valentine’s Day. As much as I love their plethora of ice cream flavors, sometimes I just want to dig into the toppings. That’s why Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Chunks are a must have… especially my personal favorite: Half Baked® with chunks of cookie dough and brownie batter.
Try this sustainable afternoon pick-me-up
Does anyone else agree that chocolate and coffee is a match made in heaven? That’s why Lily’s Sweets and Cycletown Coffee Roasters work so well together. While Lily’s uses Fairtrade cocoa to create their signature milk and dark chocolate bars, Cycletown’s Fairtrade coffee beans create the perfect roast, ready to enjoy with a side of sweetness.
Cook a fancy dinner for your sweetheart
Nothing says romance like a homemade pasta dish topped with NOOCH IT! Cashew Grated Cheeze. Just add music, mood lighting and a bottle of Riojana’s Fairtrade wine to complete the fancy Italian restaurant aesthetic.
