Green Gift Giving for the time-&-eco-challenged

Got to get yourself out of some hot solar-heated water from not selecting something from our last-minute V-day guide? Needed to overnight a Valentine's Day nod yesterday but didn't? Shipping is for the carbon-addicted bird's peeps anyway, so send an e-card that celebrates biodiversity. Or how about making an on-line mix tape? Gift an acre of rainforest...The National Zoo has e-cards with photos of a range of amorous animals. Also Animal Planet's e-card selection is here.

To digitally give the green gift of music at the last minute, try FaveTape or Opentape, sites that let you assemble and send the tunes that say I love you.
