If you are thinking about or have already started the journey to living a more sustainable life, you might be wondering about what activities you can partake in that leave little impact on the environment. You still want to be able to live a fun and fulfilling life but without leaving a huge carbon footprint behind, well that is definitely possible! We have put together a list of activities that you can enjoy with your green lifestyle still in check.
Go to the Achimota Fores
Right in the middle of Accra, you have a great place to go for the day and surround yourself with nature. Hopefully, you will be able to see some animals whilst you are there, to make the day even more worth the while. We often don’t appreciate the nature right on our doorstep but that is the best part about focusing on sustainable activities; you are able to discover the hidden gems around you.
Have a Pool Day
A great way to relax and also soak up some Vitamin D. Fiesta Residences and Fiesta Royale both offer beautiful pools on the properties, this way you are able to sip on some mouth watering cocktails as you lounge by the poolside. What a perfect way to practice a green lifestyle whilst still enjoying yourself.
Have a Picnic in the Park
Choose your favourite park or even your back yard and pack a picnic basket full of your favourite foods and snacks, take along a blanket and lay it out underneath the trees. Spend the afternoon relaxing in nature with your group of friends or family. A picnic is an activity that works for all age groups and still promotes sustainable living, therefore really giving you the best of both worlds. Make sure to leave nothing behind but your footprints when you head back to your hotel.
Treat Yourself at the Spa
Spas promote wellness and are often sustainability pioneers as they focus on natural products and healing methods. Lurra Spa at Fiesta Residences is a prime example of this as they make use of Africology which is an all-natural, African made product range. Having a spa day will not only make you feel renewed, it also doesn’t cause harm to the environment.
Go to the Zoo
Accra zoo is the perfect day time activity for a family or a couple that is looking to give back to nature. Zoos are not only a great place to look at and learn about animals, but they also focus on rehabilitating and nurturing the animals held there. Your entrance fee goes towards the general upkeep of the facilities, as well as feeding and taking care of the animals.
Take a Yoga Class
Whether it may be at your gym or even an at home yoga session, yoga is so good for your general well-being. It helps with stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as overall body strengthening and aches and pains. It also has no negative impact on the environment and is therefore a great activity for you to get involved in!
We hope that this list gives you a few ideas and makes you excited about trying some sustainable activities
