Give a green gift this Valentine's Day

Dandelion Mud Pie, a new environmentally friendly neighbourhood store, has designed a collection of six Valentine gift baskets inspired by the “spirit, creativity and works” of four authors and four Canadian eco-heros. Each “green” basket is filled with Canadian-crafted products that are natural, organic, easily biodegradable and comes with it’s own handmade gift card.

Here’s the description of the “Love Struck Eco Goddess” basket (photo) inspired by Elizabeth Barret Browning and Adria Vasil:
Products include a Mountain Sky pure beeswax heart candle, Two Herbal Mamas lip balm, Soap Stone dead sea salts, a silk herbal eye pillow, a bar of Zazubean Nakid organic chocolate and more.

This basket comes with a handcrafted gift card with the following message on the one side and blank on the other for your own words:
“I love thee to the depth and breadth and height/My soul can reach - I love thee with the breath/ Smiles, tears, of all my life!”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Valentine gift baskets are range in price from $55-$65 and are available in-store or online until February 14.


  1. You should really visit the store. Helen (the owner) has a wonderful mix of eco-lifestyle products and gifts, ranging from household cleaners to baby clothes and hand-made jewellery.

  2. Thank you for supporting "eco-friendly" gift choices! Good for you, good for the earth... good all around.

  3. Helen, Thanks for stopping by and thanks for teaching me more about "eco-friendly" living.
