This short little Valentine’s flower video was created to bring environmental awareness to the romantic holiday.

"90% of Valentine’s Roses are flown in from South America. The environmental cost is just too high," says. "We like Flowers, when they are grown nearby, or, better yet, still growing on living plants."

The one minute cartoon shows the environmental impact of sending cut flowers from faraway places, a timely piece since sending exotic blooms is by far one of the most popular Valentine’s gifts.

Check out the ‘Shocking True Story of Valentine’s Flowers’ in the video above, and maybe you’ll consider giving a living plant this year too.
