Whether you're single or in a relationship, coming up with fun and original date ideas isn't always easy. But for the eco-friendly couples out there who are passionate about things like environmental causes and healthy eating, there are plenty of eco-conscious options to consider for your next date.

We've listed some of our favorite date ideas below that will be sure to impress your date while simultaneously pleasing the environment and reducing both of your carbon footprints.

Dine at Green Restaurants 

Think organic, sustainable, locally-sourced or even vegan. Restaurants that support local farmers and the farm-to-table movement are the ideal dining spots for eco-friendly couples. If you're single and looking to impress someone who shares your green ideals and values, there's nothing simpler or easier than dinner at an eco-friendly restaurant. If you're more of an outdoorsy couple, pack an organic or plant-based picnic and head to the beach or your nearest local park.

Plan Outdoor Activities 

If you're looking for something to do together that's less simple than dinner, think outside the box – literally outside. From biking to hiking or taking a stroll in the park, get outside and explore nature together. If you want the date to last a full weekend, plan a camping trip. Pack your eco-friendly gear and arrange for some romantic outdoor activities like star gazing and canoeing.

Volunteer Together 

Find opportunities where you can volunteer together. If you share a passion for animals, spend the day volunteering at your local shelter or wildlife refuge. Tired of finding plastic and trash littering our beaches and oceans? Sign-up for a beach clean-up program together. Whatever your shared interests may be, there's bound to be a volunteer program out there that will appeal to both of you.
