4. Role Play

You and your partner each pretend to be a global superpower and debate climate metrics for your nation as if you were at the COP.

5. Make it sensual

Forget chocolate-covered strawberries or oysters and hand-feed each other cold slices of organic tofu. Make it extra raunchy by reminding each other that a vegan diet is the most environmentally friendly diet there is.

Snuggle up on the couch and read summaries and vital statistics from the Paris Climate Accords to each other.

7. Take a bath together

Put that collected rainwater to good use by lathering up with your handmade soap and bathing with your partner. Make it extra sensual by not heating the water so that you use less electricity.
