Impress Your Significant Other With These Eco-Friendly Date Ideas
“Love bug” bit you recently? Well, fear not, because summer’s a perfect time to show your significant other just how much they mean to you AND do so in an eco-friendly way.
Are they/you the outdoorsy type? Easy. Plan a picnic; bike ride around your neighborhood; go for a hike together; or take a stroll around the lake. If you can’t walk to your chosen setting, snag some public transportation.
Want to go a step further? Go camping – grab that tent and some sleeping bags, and enjoy a night under the stars. Ditch your electronics (trust me, you can go without them for a while) and plan on bringing re-usable plates and silverware. Doing dishes together can be sexy…
A bit more into the indoor thing? How about some good old arts and crafts? Gather some fallen twigs and branches and make a photo frame. Draw a picture for each other. Rather avoid the craft concepts? How about having some friends over to taste organic wines? Surprise your significant other by making them dinner with fresh ingredients from the local farmer’s market.
The ideas are endless! For more thought-starters, check out these great posts from YourTango and Seventeen. How about you, readers? What are some of your favorite eco-friendly dates? Share them with the rest of us!
