You don’t have to travel far or to spend a lot of money in order to participate in fun eco friendly activities. If you are curious about some of the eco friendly activities which you should try this year, simply continue reading.
Zero waste camping:
If it’s been a long time since you’ve spent quality time outdoors, disconnecting from the distractions of modern day life, you may be interested in planning a zero waste camping trip. Incase you were wondering a zero waste camping trip involves ensuring that you don’t leave a trace of your trip at the end of your camping adventure and that you take all of the trash which you create out with you on the last day of your trip. During your next camping trip you may want to pack a hammock, which you’ll be able to string up between two trees in order to read a book or to listen to the sound of nature.
One eco friendly activity that doesn’t cost a lot of money is stargazing. As all you’ll need is a cozy spot. For example you may want to grab a couple of oversized pillows, a bean bag, a yoga mat or a picnic blanket, in order to stargaze with family members, friends or someone special. It’s a great idea to download a stargazing app on your phone so that you can try and identify different constellations on your phone. Also keep in mind that depending on whether you’re stargazing in the northern hemisphere or the southern hemisphere, some of the constellations which you’ll be able to identify will be different.
Cleaning up your local beach:
If you notice that there is often trash scattered around your favorite beach, you can make a difference by grabbing a trash bag and trying to collect as much trash as you can. As if trash is not collected and disposed of it can end up in the sea, which will pollute the sea and can cause damage to unsuspecting marine animals as well as birds such as seagulls. Just remember that this activity is more fun if you get together a team of friends or family members to assist you.
It’s well worth searching the internet to see if there are beginner friendly bouldering sites in your area. As bouldering is like rock climbing but in nature instead of in a man made structure. Just be careful to go bouldering with an experienced guide in order to avoid getting yourself into trouble. Another benefit of bouldering with an experienced guide is that they’ll be able to teach you the proper techniques that you’ll need to learn to become a more skilled climber and will have the right tools on hand to ensure that your bouldering experience is a safe, controlled experience.
So if you’re an eco warrior who still wants to have fun and to participate in as many outdoor activities as possible, it’s well worth starting off with some of the eco friendly adventures that are listed right above.
