I'll be the first to admit that I'm not as green as I should be.But what better time than Earth Day to start making some small changes?Here are a few last minute (and very easy!) date ideas we can try on for size tonight.
Snuggle on the couch and get inspired while watching a green-themed program on TV.I'll be tuned intoCalifornia's Greenon PBS.
Head to your local park for an impromptu clean up.It's surprising and quite sad to see how much trash gets left behind at the playground.But your efforts can make a huge difference.Afterwards,you and your beau can take turns pushing each other on the swings!
Planning on going out this evening?Why not hop on the bus or your bikes instead of the car?I'm a huge,huge fan of public transportation and I actually love taking the bus and subways on dates with Chris.Aside from doing our little part to be more earth-friendly,we get to spend the whole time chatting and gossiping instead of focusing on driving.
If you're inspring cleaningmode,one of you can keep those peepers peeled for items that can be recycled or donated instead of tossed out into the trash.I know,I know,spring cleaning is kind of a drag but perhaps some barely there threads could spice up the chore?
Check out the new documentaryOceans.While going to the movies isn't exactly cheap,you can feel a little bit better about your outing by knowing that Disneynature will donate a percentage of ticket sales to The Nature Conservancy.The previews give me goose bumps!
Do you have any special plans for this evening?Who is more environmentally conscious,you or your guy?And eco-minded gals,what suggestions do you have fellow readers looking to be greener?
