Green Your Valentine’s Day: Plan An Eco-Friendly Date Night

Romantic Valentine's Day date Trying to impress your sweetie for Valentine’s Day but don’t want to break the earth’s heart? This week we’re letting you know how to be romantic and green.

Tip #2: Green Your Date Night

Valentine’s Day is essentially a collective date night, so if you keep these green-dating tips in mind while planning your outing on February 14, or on any other night, you’ll make the planet smile just as much as your significant other. 

When going out to eat, choose a restaurant that uses local, seasonal, organic ingredients and has lots of vegetarian options. If you’re planning a multi-day getaway, consider a staycation, camping, or a green hotel. Wherever you go, coordinate to take public transit – or a bicycle homebuilt for two.
