Looking to respect Mother Nature on your of your dates. Why not try one of these Green Dating Ideas:
1. Gift Mother Nature
If a present is in order for the date, try and gift Mother Nature instead of your significant other. Save a tree in his name, donate to his favorite local charity or drop off shoes you are not wearing anymore to a shelter — all men love when women can sacrifice shoes for love!
2. Clean up the Park or Road
Volunteering together to clean trash from a local park or roadside area is a wonderful eco-friendly date idea. Giving back to the community is a wonderful thing to do on a personal level and doing it with a person that you care about can make for an enriching and eco-friendly date.
3. Plant a Tree
Planting a tree together is a great way to mark where you are in your relationship. If you are in a committed relationship this is a great eco-friendly date idea, as you can watch the tree grow together year after year. If you are dating on a more casual level, it may be more appropriate to plant flowers together or something that shows more immediate results. Both are eco-friendly date ideas that are also fun.
4. Take in a Local Farmer’s Market
Go online and find out what’s happening in your community. To save on paper, email the directions to your cell phone. Take a walk there if possible. If not, check out the mass transit. Take a bus or train. While at the farmer’s market, pick up some items to make dinner together with and eat by candlelight.
5. Eco-friendly vacations
Instead of a honeymoon to a place of entertainment ‘standard’ is visited by all people, why not choose natural tourist destinations that are rarely visited? Natural beauty will make you more and want to maintain their sustainability.
