If you’ve spent your whole life under the impression that
Earth Day isn’t romantic in the slightest—or maybe even just forgetting that
such a day exists—it’s time to think again. It may not be quite at the level of
any Valentine’s Day, but this green holiday has a few charms of its own that
definitely makes it date-night-worthy. So give your BF a ring to let him know
to keep his calendar open tonight (and this weekend, natch), and check out this
list of cute eco-themed date suggestions for ideas.
Take some time to appreciate the wildlife this Earth Day. This
is also the perfect excuse to spend some one-on-one time with your BF,
especially if you’ve both been busy lately. Block off a few hours one afternoon
exclusively for strolling, chatting, and gushing over all the adorable baby
As an alternative to a trip to the zoo, schedule a visit to
your local aquarium. A lot of aquariums are hosting some cool sea-life
programming and conservation exhibits exclusively this weekend, so pop over and
see how you can do your part in cleaning up our oceans.
You know what they say: the couple who volunteers together…
well, volunteers together. Make a difference this Earth Day by signing up to
help out at a nearby creek, river or park clean-up. You’ll be able to take part
in something that directly benefits the environment and, with your BF by your
side, you’ll be having so much fun, it won’t even seem like work at all.
Dinner for Two
For something slightly tamer, make plans to dine out. Only,
don’t go to just any old restaurant. In honor of Earth Day, many restaurants
are offering special meals that somehow demonstrate environmental
consciousness. It might be in the ingredients themselves (for example, a local
Baltimore eatery is offering oysters at a reduced price, then recollecting the
shells for an oyster recovery program), or in how much energy is conserved by
the way that meal is prepared, or to what eco-charity the proceeds are going.
Either way, it’s worth a google to see which places near you are making this
I bet you didn’t know that Earth Day is also the kick-off of
National Park Week—the five-day period in which entrance to all US National
Parks is completely free. Take advantage of this sweet deal and start planning a
day trip now. Beautiful spring weather, gorgeous scenery, and quality time with
the BF all for free—what could be better?
