Chances are your ideal match is, like you, conscientious and environmentally aware and just waiting to be discovered! Here are earth-friendly steps you can take to put yourself in the right place at the right time to make “the connection.”
Budding love can be found in a community garden.
If you live in a city, spending some time helping out in a community garden or urban farm can be a wonderful way grow both food and a solid relationship. Most groups accept individuals for a one-time gig or regular participation. Non-profit community farms often present opportunities to educate others about food systems and nutritious diets, sustainable farming practices, and giving back to the community by donating fresh, nutritious food to low-income families. This is a great way to meet compassionate, like-minded individuals.
Get involved in a local river cleanup.
Taking an interest in beautifying your local environment certainly makes you more attractive and positions you to make a date. Working together and achieving a common goal with immediate visible impact sets the scene for a meaningful bond. While this might not seem like the most innovative way to bring about environmental change, it can be one of the most rewarding. Since there are generally few government resources dedicated to cleaning trash from local rivers, it usually requires community involvement to make a change. Removing trash can make a river safer for wildlife and humans and improve water quality while protecting aquatic habitats.
Outreach for a cause: Passion.
Outreach and events will help you to meet eco-conscious singles. Look nearby for demonstrations or rallies that support environmental issues that matter to you. There, you’re sure to find others who are equally passionate about giving their time to the cause.
Green job spaces.
Most of us spend the bulk of our waking hours at work. It stands to reason that you may develop deep connections with the people that work with and alongside you. You may consider ways to enlist the help of coworkers in green education initiatives that improve recycling efforts or concentrate on company-wide energy conservation. This is a chance to shine in the eyes of your boss and the cutie from accounting.
Do you work from home? Consider spending some of your time in a local coworking space. You can choose a favourite setup or try several, from which you’ll gain fresh perspective and the chance to meet entrepreneurial singles who are also down with sharing resources.
If you’re looking for employment or considering a career change, note that many online job boards allow you to refine your search for green job opportunities that contribute to a more sustainable world. In this way, the benefits of gainful employment are coupled (pun intended!) with the high probability of meeting other eco-savvy individuals.
