Low-Impact Fall Fun

It’s time to get geared up for fall fun now that the weather is starting to cool down and the heat waves are becoming less frequent. Sometimes it’s not easy being green and saving your green, and no one wants to sacrifice fun for eco-friendliness or to save a dollar. But there are plenty of ways to pass the autumn days that cause little to no impact on your planet or your wallet! Here are a few ideas for low-impact, low-cost fall fun to get you started!

HOST A GAME NIGHT
Staying in can help save, but no one says you have to do it alone! A game night is the perfect way to get together for a night of low-key, low-impact, low-cost fun! Source your games from garage sales, thrift stores, or your party guests themselves. Turn it into a pot-luck and enjoy tasty treats while getting your game on!

VOLUNTEER IN THE FRESH AIR

Volunteering for a good cause can also serve double-duty as a good excuse to get outside and enjoy some fresh air! You’ll find ample opportunities at your fingertips on volunteer matching websites such as volunteermatch.org and laworks.com. Want to make it really count? Work a physically active event, like one with TreePeople removing non-native plants, for the added benefit of a workout!

HEAD OUT ON A TWO-WHEELED EXPEDITION

Autumn is the perfect time for a leisurely bike ride across the Valley. You can enjoy up to 18 miles of beautiful fall weather on the Orange Line Busway Bike Path. Is a 36 mile trip too long for you? Start in the Noho Arts District and end at Balboa Park for a picnic (17 miles total, round trip). Make sure you pack a tasty lunch and plenty of water!

HOST A BLACK-OUT PARTY

It may seem odd, but one thing I miss about living on the East Coast is the fun that comes from a black-out caused by a rain or snow storm. There’s something about being stuck in a house or apartment with family or friends that is delightfully bonding! With no electricity, no lights, no distractions, you can break down the walls of technology that keep you from sharing moments instead of statuses. For your black-out party, stock up on matches, candles, flashlights, and blankets. Have your guests bring snacks, games and stories. Maybe even supplies for a furniture fort! Gather together to light up the living room with natural candlelight and tell ghost stories, play slumber party games, cuddle up and hang out! No need for an itinerary - once the lights go down, the fun is sure to turn up!
