Grab your honey and get environmental! Our Earth is so beautiful, but with our busy schedules, we can forget how amazing it actually is. Lace up your sneakers and get ready for a good old-fashioned clean up with your man.

This date can really bring out the fun, romantic, and philanthropic side of your beau. It’ll open your minds as a couple and help you see all the beauty that’s in the world. You’ll both notice the little things and experience something wonderful while also helping the green environment for the better. With the crisp, fresh air and the regrowth of plants all around us, we can really feel the need to give back to our planet, and now is the perfect time to do it!

Thanks to Earth Day on April 22nd, there will be plenty of organized clean ups taking place. Some areas focus on hard trails, while others prefer sunny beaches. The choice is your’s, and once you both decide where you want to go, search for a nearby spot. A company like CleanUpTheWorld.Org is very helpful for finding activities and events in your area

But don’t just go and get dirty! Scope out some future date spots too. You might find that you like that quaint area of the park or a sweet part of the beach. When you expand your horizons, you’ll discover new things about yourselves, and doing this activity together will help you grow as a twosome. You might even want to continue joining clean ups after Earth Day! Maybe you’ll make it your new “thing.”

You’ll be starved afterwards, so grab some lunch with your sweetheart at a local restaurant. While there, talk about more ways you can help the environment and about your favorite part of today’s clean up.

There are other, simpler ways to take care of the environment too: You can donate your recyclables or plant some fresh trees at a city park. The sky’s the limit — just be sure to keep it clean!
