Your Turn: What's Behind Valentine's Day Flowers

Most of the flowers sold on Valentine’s Day come from countries in Latin America where workers aren’t paid well and are exposed to harmful chemicals. If people know this, do you think they should still buy cut flowers for the people they love?

No, because it is not fair that the workers don’t get paid much even if we pay a lot for the flowers, and if
there are chemicals they can get sick.

I think people should still buy flowers. It’s the workers’ choice to work a job where they are exposed to harmful chemicals.

I think so because it’s important to let them know that you care about them.

No, there are other things that you can get for your loved ones—like a card, a teddy bear, or even fake flowers.
