Eco-friendly Date Ideas for Sustainable Couples
Eco-friendly dates can be great fun. Being environmentally conscious together when it comes to date ideas or just fun activities to do together can be a great way to get closer to each other.
Get environmentally friendly without compromising on fun. While you're nurturing your relationship with your partner by doing all these fun things, you're also contributing to the well-being of the earth.
- Go on A zero-waste picnic
Having a zero-waste picnic can help you incorporate zero-waste living in your relationship and get you both in the habit of opting for reusable items. Try to be mindful of your plastic usage by packing reusable straws, compostable cutlery, and bowls.
- Plan a planting date
You can get crafty and learn about ecology at the same time with a planting date. Gather your craft supplies and decorate some pots with nontoxic paint and leave them to dry. When they’re ready, fill them with soil, sand, and rocks to help transplant your new plants into the decorated pots.
- Make a vegan dinner at home
Dinner dates at home are great because you get to work together, learn about the environmental impact of meat and dairy by making a vegan meal together. If you both enjoy it, you can chat about making vegan dinner night a more regular occurrence.
- Go on a green camping trip
On this nature friendly trip, take along non-disposable cutlery which you can wash and use. Camping outdoors is one of the best things to do as an eco-friendly date. It gives you the opportunity to get closer to nature.
- Nature photography in the woods
Go with your partner away in the woods and capture every memorable moment in your camera. If you are a photo enthusiast then no other date idea could be catchier for you but for others also, it seems to be a good one. The trees, the flowers, mountains, the river, butterflies, the blue sky, the list is endless.
- Go biking
It’s a zero-carbon activity, with lots of fresh air, and a great way to spend time together. Make sure to carry your own reusable water bottle to reduce plastic pollution.
