Green is the new pink

February 8, 2021

Whoever you are loving this valentines lets celebrate in a way that also loves the planet. Incorporate these sustainable options into your candle lit zooms.

Re-wear an old outfit – If everyone wore a pre-loved outfit on Valentines this year the CO2 emissions saved could be the equivalent to taking 56 million cars off the road for a day.

Eat a vegan option – Swapping just one more red meat meal to plant-based each week is the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road each year.

Potted plant > flowers Not only are potted planets better for the environment but also financially more economical as they last much longer.

Plastic Free Cleaning – In the UK households throw away around 295 billion pieces of plastic every year, much of which is single-use and cannot be recycled. Reduce your number by cutting plastic out of your cleaning routine.

Bridgerton – Because what is more valentines day appropriate than Julie Andrews, corsets and ballrooms ?

Why Iron and Velvet ?

One of our most loved surface cleaners has Ylang ylang as its fragrance. Often called the essential oil of love for its stress relief and mood boosting properties. Fill your house with this stunning scent. Fun fact : Ylang ylang is the main fragrance in the iconic Chanel no 5 perfume.
