Reducing your carbon footprint is extremely important in this day and age. At OBC, we try to our best to be a green company by recycling and doing our best to conserve natural resources. What we didn’t know was that the very act of casual dating may be good for the environment.

According to a study presented in the LA Times, a commonly overlooked aspect of the human race’s strain on the environment is the problem of over-population. Researchers at Oregon State University argue that the carbon footprint of parents increase by almost six times per child. Having just one child nullifies the effects of driving a fuel efficient hybrid car.

By dating casual and responsibly engaging in safe sex, singles everywhere are reducing their carbon footprints. We always knew that the single life was good for the individual but we had no idea that it was good for the environment.
