Haven't Bought Your Sweetie Flowers? Buy Kenyan!

Haven't Bought Your Sweetie Flowers? Buy Kenyan!

We mentioned the Kenyan rose industry earlier this week — and just in time to buy your sweetie a big bouquet, the UK government is telling consumers to buy the African roses to help the troubled country.

A recent study also showed that roses grown and imported from Kenya, produced fewer emissions than those grown in heated greenhouses in Holland. Though to have the biggest impact, romance-loving consumers should look for roses that feature the "fair-trade" label, to ensure that the Kenyan workers are treated fairly as well.

What do you think? Will you look for Kenyan flowers to love your Valentine, and your world?
