Green Romance

Green Romance

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.

Want some honey for your Honey? Plenty of organic honey is available in the Ventura area. You can also find honey vendors at your farmers market.


Wild Bouquets

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.
