Ghanaian guide to sustainable living

2020 Storyfest Entry

A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to travel to Ghana and learn about the lifestyle of the people living there. They taught me many things ranging from language to culture to the sustainability of their land. Ghanaians are dedicated to a greener future and display this through their constant green practices. An interesting thing to note, however, is that many of these natives are not aware that their practices are green. Rather, they are practices that make the most sense to them as it allows them to save more and be more at peace. 

I want to display a Ghanaian Guide to Sustainability that everyone can follow. They are simple tasks that many people can do but probably do not think about. Too often have I heard the excuse that environmental sustainability calls for people to do the impossible. Here are examples of everyday people completing everyday tasks.
