There are so many reasons that V-Day is THE WORST, but my “favorite” is the environmental damage it causes. Here in SF, finding locally-grown flowers is pretty easy, but our regional farms can’t possibly meet the demand levels around V-Day. So ladies, if you haven’t already asked your significant others to please *not* get you flowers this week, here’s a good article on the damage to which you are contributing: How Your Supermarket Flowers Empty Kenya’s Rivers. See also The Price of Kenyan Roses and the Tragedy of Lake Naivasha. Or just Google “Kenya cut flowers water” and take your pick.
