5 Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

February 9, 2017

While you and your significant other are celebrating Valentine’s Day this year, make sure to show the Earth some love too. If you’re trying to plan an eco-friendly Valentine’s Day, here are a few “green” ways to celebrate.

Walk Along the Beach

If you’re willing to brave the cold, take a romantic walk along the beach. Bring along your phone or camera and take pictures of any unique shells or sea glass you find.

Plan an Organic Picnic

Grab your bike, a couple of sandwiches and some drinks and head to the park for a romantic lunch. Finish the date with a bottle of organic wine.

Cook Together

Sure you could try to scrape together last minute reservations and go to a crowded restaurant, or you could enjoy a relaxing and romantic night at home by preparing your own dinner. (Bonus points if you get all of your ingredients from a local farmer’s market).

Ice Skating

Indoor or outdoor, natural or man-made, head to the rink for Valentine’s Day. A safe, frozen over lake is perfect for a private day, away from the crowds. But there is also something fun about the hustle and bustle of a public rink – did someone say “Rockefeller Plaza?”

Host a Wine Tasting

An organic wine tasting of course. Invite a few other couples over and spend Valentine’s Day together, after all – the more the merrier! Have each person bring over a bottle of their favorite wine and start tasting.
