Shopping and Social Tour
The tour will set off from the hostel to visit Trashy Bags, an organisation located at Dzworwlu about 15 – 20 minutes drive away. Trashy Bags is a social enterprise where eco-friendly, stylish bags are created from recycled plastic trash. Tour participants will be guided round the factory to see how the re-cycled bags are made and will then have the opportunity to purchase any of the wonderful, eco-friendly products. From here, the tour will head to the Accra Shopping Mall, which is a newly built, modern shopping centre. Here participants can do some grocery and other shopping and enjoy a drink or a snack in one of the many restaurants. We will then continue to the busy and lively area of Osu, where we will walk down the famous Oxford Street. This street is probably one of the most crowded streets in Accra, lined with shops, restaurants and street-side stalls selling crafts and souvenirs from Ghana. There is an abundance of restaurants to suit all budgets in this area and participants can choose to take their lunch here. For those who wish to do some grocery shopping, the Koala supermarket is located nearby. Participants will then be safely guided back to Pink Hostel or can choose to hang out on their own and make their own way back to the hostel.
