Valentine’s Activities Ideas: The Zero-waste Way

Here we are at the beginning of February. The supermarkets and social media starts to remind us that is time for Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, this day often focuses on the topic of romantic love. However, in the modern-day settings, this day can be celebrated differently.

Valentine’s Day is for everyone. Besides for couples that are romantically involved, it is also a day to show love for your neighbours, family, friends and even, strangers. Let us think about some Valentine’s Day activities to do! Many of the activities can be waste-free and not as commercialized.

Have A Drink, My Love

Drink Up, My Love!

One of the most common activities that many enjoy is having a coffee or tea date at your local café. You can invite one or a few of your loved ones to spend some intimate time together. You can also treat them to some delicious bite. Look for organically grown coffee and tea leaves. As you leave the café, you can pick up a cup of hot coffee and a muffin to share with the fellow sitting on the corner outside.

If you prefer to stay home, you can invite your loved one for a home-cooked meal. Imagine having a few close friends and having a Valentine’s Day potluck where you can introduce some new flavours.

For friends with little children, Valentine’s Day can be lots of fun too. First of all, if the weather permits, have a Valentine’s Day picnic! Bring your snacks and treats in your reusable cloth bags. Serve your drinks in reusable glass mason jars and cups. Don’t forget to pick up any garbage afterwards.

In our next post, we will be sharing some zero-waste gift ideas from the heart.

  1. This is great! You got me thinking that I should do something special for my little ones on Vday. We are home together all day and what a great way to change things up. An outdoor picnic sounds great. I might also make some heart shaped cookies and let my daughter two assist!!

  2. I never really thought of Valentine’s Day as something to celebrate with friends or family but I’ll see what I can do to make it special for those close to me. Thanks for sharing and I’m looking forward to your next post !

  3. I love the idea of meeting up for coffee! My girlfriends and I are doing a “Galentine’s Day” this year where we get together at a restaurant just us girls. I’m really looking forward to it!

  4. I love this 💖 Spending time showing everyone how much they mean to me is how I celebrate Valentine’s Day, so it’s nice to see others with that point as well 😊 I love the idea of a picnic 🧺

  5. These are sweet and great ideas! I love the idea of splitting some wine or getting some ethically sourced coffee in a reusable cup. I’ll be keeping these in mind. Thanks for sharing!
