Eco-friendly date ideas


With Valentine’s Day around the corner, many couples are looking for unique ways to spoil their loved one. Why not try “Green” dating? Treat your better half to an eco-friendly date. Spread your love a little further by loving the planet too.

5 Eco-friendly Date Ideas

1. Visit an organic winery

Cheers to love and happiness with the one you adore with a glass of wine from an organic winery. There’s nothing more romantic than exploring a local winery to taste the fruits of sustainable agriculture. You could also learn a thing or two about organic farming techniques and how it benefits the planet.


2. Have an outdoor picnic

Take advantage of our hot summer days and head outdoors for a romantic picnic. Picnics are perfect for a first date, get to know each other over some organic wine, cheeses and fruit. There’s nothing better than good old face to face conversations. So disconnect yourself from the digital world and connect with nature instead. Bring non-disposable plates, cups and cutlery for an extra eco-friendly date. 


3. Plant a tree of love

Whether you dig in the dirt of your own backyard or rent a space at a local community garden, digging in the dirt with your loved one can be loads of fun. This will not only help the planet but it’s something that you both will have forever and something you could one day share with your children. And, of course, when you start seeing the fruits of your labour it will be nothing short of special.


4. Visit a local farmers market

Hop on a bike and head down to your nearest farmers market. Explore the wonders of the market taking in the sights, smells and tastes of local produce. Grab a few items that you could later prepare a delicious meal with and end the date with a perfectly cooked meal with the love of your life. For an extra eco-friendly date try to use as many seasonal foods as possible.


5. Get crafty

Immortalise your love in a painting. Create your own masterpiece with a  fun and interactive arts & crafts afternoon out. Whether you’re the next Picasso or can barely draw a stick man, receiving a handmade gift is pretty special and something that is not nearly done as often as it should be.


We hope these eco-friendly date ideas will help you chose the perfect date to spoil your loved one with.
