Sorry folks, this just in, right before Valentines day.

Well maybe not. I was shocked to read about the quantities of pesticides used on imported flowers and the damage to the workers in Colombia from this.

So like most things. We, the consumers, hold the power to make change by not buying the toxic stuff!

But there are better alternatives, perhaps fair trade chocololate instead. Or there is not in Canada an emerging organic, fair trade flower industry.
