Make sustainability even more fun
with your friends!
It's sunny, spring is around the corner and it's getting hotter and hotter with each passing day. You get more energy and thus feel more alert as well. What could be better than going out with your friends in the sunshine and doing something fun together? We list some fun activities you can do with your friends right now.
Arrange your own flea market between you
With spring also comes the spring cleaning, a topic we discussed earlier. Part of the big cleaning that you do every year means that you sort your clothes and what is in your drawers: what do you need to keep and what do you have no use for anymore? Instead of donating your things to charity or the city's flea market, you can gather your friends and arrange a flea market between you. Maybe your friend can benefit from what you no longer use, and vice versa? Arranging your own flea market between you will also be a great opportunity to meet your friends again.
Educate yourself together
Surely it is fun to discuss a book or a series with someone who has also seen or read the same book / movie / series? The same goes for podcasts. We have a tip on an activity you can either do with your friend physically or individually but still together: namely listen to an educational podcast! Whether you are cleaning, cooking, baking or lying on the balcony in the sun, you can have a podcast to listen to in the background. There are a variety of podcasts on the topic of sustainability and environmental thinking, where some are The durability pod, Sustainability Defined, The environmental pod, Climate feelings but also TED Climate.
Maybe the podcast addresses a topic that you yourself have not thought of before? It always feels great to learn something new. Listening to the podcast is of course something you can do when you are alone too, when you cycle, walk or exercise and then talk to your friend about the topics afterwards.
Save food together!
Is there anything more fun than saving food? To save food with his friends of course! And there is so much fun you can do with the food you save! Are you saving a whole bag of bread? Yes, but then it's just a matter of checking out some nice recipes where the basics are bread. Bruschetta? Garlic bread? Or something else nice? Are you saving a whole bag of fruit and vegetables? Find a recipe where you can cook something fun together Right. Why not invite friends and family? Do something fun by saving food together!
Create a sustainable challenge
Challenge yourself and your friends for a month. Make a list of things that you would like to challenge yourself within a month and make sure that these are things you can actually achieve. Of course, you can do your challenge against yourself alone, but there is something special about challenging yourself and knowing that someone else is doing a challenge at the same time as you. You do not have to have the same goal to be able to do the challenge, but just set a goal on how many lines on the list you have to achieve during the month and the one who achieves the fastest wins or the one who achieves all points at the end of the month. To make it more likely that you will achieve the goal at the end of the month and make it a little more fun, it can be fun to set a physical price. What do you gain if you complete the challenge?
Shop sustainably together
Are you looking for something for home or someone's birthday? Gather your friends and head out on the town to see what the city's second-hand shops have to offer. It's always more fun to look in stores with others, plus someone in the group might see something you do not see. More eyes are always better! It's also fun if you are all looking for something on the day you go out to the shops.
Do something fun for the environment and yourself
Gather your friends and go out into nature together with black bags and gloves and collect rubbish together. Either you drive on all kinds of rubbish or you focus on collecting PET bottles and see how much you can collect together. For the money you get in for the PET bottles, you can buy something to celebrate, or combine the point earlier about saving food with this point. Why not save food with money you have earned by cleaning up your city?
A hot tip when it comes to saving food is to go into a convenience store as these sometimes sell out bread as well as fruits and vegetables from yesterday for a cheaper money, food that would otherwise have been wasted.
Hope you got some ideas on fun things you can do with your friends now that spring is coming. We can all do something for the environment and have fun at the same time.
