World Environment Day is widely celebrated on June 5 and this year, couples are consciously contributing to raising awareness about the environment. In fact, people who opt for online dating have increasingly stated that they would love to go for outdoor activities or dates that include actively walking in parks or in the neighbourhood. Besides that, people have also shown interest in giving each other sustainable gifts, to preach for a safe environment for a better tomorrow, thus advancing the trend of ‘green dating.’
Dating apps have seen a significant increase in people vouching for outdoor dates and taking environmentally-driven decisions that will help spread awareness and also make their romantic dates extra special. Samarpita Samaddar, India Communications Director of Bumble tells us, “despite the challenges, we’ve seen a number of positive dating trends emerge from the pandemic, and ‘Green Dating’ is one that we hope to see continue in 2022. Now more than ever, people are looking to connect with those that share their values and priorities. It is encouraging to see people thinking about how the environment is important in all aspects of their lives including dating.”
