There are actually a lot of fun-filled activities that will make you rethink how you spend leisure time with your family. With all your daily activities that somehow impact the environment in a not-so-friendly way—like using up a surprising amount of electricity to power up your multitude of gadgets, or driving around town in your minivan— wouldn’t it feel great to venture into activities that are both cost-effective and environmentally sound?
