When we go out on a date, we don’t usually think eco-friendly! We don’t really consider the possibility of ways we could be helping the planet on the date. The Earth can use all the help it could get and why not get started while on a date?Choosing places you go or things you can do to help the Planet, is possible. Imagine if more than one person would consider these eco-friendly choices while on a date, many things could change and also help the Earth! Here are five tips for you to consider while out on your date.
Tip Number 1
No fast food! Don’t go out to fast food on your date. For one, it probably is not the first date choice, but also it is not the most Eco-friendly place. A lot of food is wasted at fast food everyday. People throw food out and the fast food establishment tosses good amounts of food out everyday, what a waste! Also a lot of paper and plastic products are used there. Definitely not a a place to choose to be eco-friendly!
Tip Number 2
Driving in a vehicle on your date is not the best idea for the environment. Instead take a walk somewhere or go on a bike ride. Great for health and the environment. Help save on pollution. That’s one problem we face today is its so easy to just drive places. Now sometimes work, or grocery shopping can make it difficult to say you can walk, but think of all the other things you do. Picking up mail, going to a friends, going on a date, these are all things that may be possible to just go for a walk or ride a bike. Try it it could make you feel great. Great for saving the environment and great for being active. A date will be a perfect place to start!
Tip Number 3
Don’t bring any electronic device on your date. Try not bring a cell phone on the date. That is one great health move for you as it is great for our environment. Try cutting back on anything electronic. Don’t go on a movie date, if your trying to be eco-friendly. Think about more than just the movie. Think lights, air or heat being used, things being used at the concession stand, etc.
Tip Number 4
Why not try to go on a date to a plant nursery and each pick out a special plant you like for each other to plant. What a great way to contribute to the planet and give back! Pick out a favorite flower or a plant. It is also a way to let the person learn something about you.
Tip Number 5
Most of all, always choose an outdoor activity that requires little harm to the environment! Playing a sport, going to the beach, etc. All great places and things to help our Earth ,one person at a time or one date at a time!
