SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR PARIS THIS VALENTINE’S DAY!
For the third straight year, No Love Locks is declaring this February 14th, “No Love Locks Day,” with a Valentine’s Day social media campaign encouraging people to show their love for Paris by not hanging a lock on our bridges and monuments.
SHARE OUR CAMPAIGN ON SOCIAL MEDIA,
Starting February 10th and running throughout the 14th , we want to go global with our message that damaging “love locks” are not a symbol of love. Here’s how you can help:
- Download the campaign’s Facebook/Twitter heart badge below, to use as your social media profile picture from February 10-14
- Select any of your favorite campaign images (downloadable below), and post at least 1 per day on your social network along with the hashtag #NoLoveLocksDay, and this link: NoLoveLocks.com/NoLoveLocksDay2016
- Encourage your followers to retweet and share the love for Paris!
We need you! Let’s send the message to visitors to the city that hanging a lock on the historic monuments and public spaces of Paris is vandalism that damages the city and hurts the people of France—culturally, economically and emotionally. It’s time for tourists to act responsibly, and that means showing their respect and empathy for Parisians by not destroying the beauty and heritage of their city. Paris is a romantic place with so much to offer lovers—beyond destructive padlocks that say anything but love.

Image #2: LOVE WITHOUT LOCKS. A couple shares a kiss on the newly restored Pont des Arts. This is real love—without vandalism to the heritage of Paris. Share a kiss in the most romantic city in the world, and leave your locks at home. (Photo: Michel Gauret)
Image #3: LOVE OR VANDALISM? There are still ten bridges and several landmarks heavily affected by locks. This is the Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor (aka Passerelle Solferino), which has begun to decay under the weight of locks. Another beautiful view marred by “love.” (Photo: Michel Gauret)
