The greatest force in nature is … love. How can we be romantic with each other while caring for our precious environment?
- Aim for shared experiences instead of buying stuff to express romance.
- Reduce the environmental footprint of date night – go to community venues – eat locally at farm-to-table restaurants or support Clean Bay restaurants.
- To find out how eco-friendly your transportation, energy, and food options really are, try using a carbon emissions calculator.
Get Organic with Your Honey
Get organic: Commit to cooking and eating organic, buying and growing edible and ornamental organic plants, and purchasing organically sourced clothes. Romance feels better when it based upon sustainability.
Store-bought flowers are resource intensive for such short-lived beauty; they not only use water to grow, but also fossil fuels for transit. Putting together a bouquet from your garden can make a meaningful one-of-a-kind gift. Even a single daisy or poesy is a sweet gesture – he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me!
Live Forever: Give a Plant
Some folks find cut flowers a little depressing after a few days. They wilt…they die…not the message you want to share with your special someone. By giving someone a plant, you can inspire a kitchen garden, cheer up a dining room, or leave a memory that grows. If you really want to do romance right, Go Wild and give native plants.
