Green Your Date -- Activity Ideas

Happy_couple_istock_000003161451xsm Green dating shouldn't break your bank. Woo a new crush or surprise your steady with these three inexpensive, earth-friendly date ideas.

Shed some stuff: Ask your date to bring a bag of old clothes and visit a Goodwill or Salvation Army. Before donating, peek inside the bags; share stories about each item and laugh over misguided fashion choices.

Plant some love: Instead of presenting cut flowers, give your date a potted plant and a spade. Make like green rebels and bond over some guerrilla gardening. Watch the plant grow as the relationship progresses.

Green a feast: Meet at a local farmers' market, stock up on fresh veggies, and create a feast. Enjoy the outdoors by choosing a picnic-friendly recipe. GoVeg.com lists some rumored aphrodisiacs to spice up the meal.
