Our practices!  What’s new? 

We practice natural,  organic lifestyle and our love for nature has led us up to the Aburi mountains to start the Green Butterfly organic garden and nature spa!

October’s second Eco market in Airport residential area.

Last Saturday we had the Open Air stock exchange in Airport residential area. This second market started operating this year at no.  11 Volta road near GIZ and just down the road from Koala supermarket and D Deli. Other landmarks are cuppa cappuccino and Stanford SEED. 

Through the open air stock exchange,  small community businesses come together to showcase their handmade,  natural, organic products,  as well as their art and various services. The project seeks to support healthy growth in our communities by supporting ecofriendly businesses. 

This month witnessed  our best attendance yet, not only of customers but also of vendors. Items on sale included clothing,  crafts,  skincare and hardware products,  accessories and food. 

We also had a henna stand where visitors got some cool henna tattoos!

Make a date with us next month on the 12th of November. We have even more surprises in store including a live acoustic session by Yasmeen “the voice” from 6pm.

August’s first Open Air Stock Exchange!


We had an amazing time yesterday at the Goethe Institut. Our monthly ecofriendly market is now a big hit in Accra and the place to be on the first Saturday of every month. Also on the second Saturday of every month in Airport residential. Yesterday was the best turnout we have had at the Goethe Institut for the month of August.




The Open Air Stock Exchange was started 5 years ago to support the local ecofriendly industry. The program supports artisans and producers of local Ghanaian handmade and organic products.

For the first time, there was a queue at the food court and no available chairs




We look forward to seeing you next Saturday at the Open Air Stock Exchange in airport residential πŸ™‚

Where does your money go?


Every day we spend money on various things ranging from things we absolutely need to things that are for pleasure or considered luxury items. Whatever the case may be, we spend money on products everyday but have you thought carefully about where your money is going and what sort of impact your spending makes on your community, your country, and the world? This is very important so take a few minutes to think about it.

There are mighty multinationals like NestlΓ©, Unilever, and the like. There are medium to large manufacturing companies some of whom employ the use of chemicals and dangerous substances in their products. Then there are the small to medium companies run by members of our very own communities some of whom are making (or growing) quality eco friendly  products without the use of dangerous chemicals or harming animals. Where would you rather spend your money?
The billions of dollars earned everyday by multinationals may not be impacted severely by your individual decision to patronise and support a local, handmade product but your decision to support that small local business means the world to a mother who desperately needs to make ends meet. You could be helping her put meals on her table, to clothe her children and to put them through school.

Here at Green Butterfly we support such women through capacity building and various retail platforms. Find out about the next eco market happening near you. If you live in Accra it’s happening on the first Saturday of every month at the Goethe Institut in East Cantonments (next to NAFTI) and on the second Saturday of every month in Airport residential area  (near GIZ) and Koala supermarket. Products you can find at the eco market include:

●Locally grown, Organic herbs and vegetables
● handicrafts
● beads and accessories
● natural handmade soaps
● natural handmade cosmetics
● Oils
● natural health foods
● fabric and clothing
● footwear
● art
● local music
● thrift items

Support local ecofriendly business and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing how your spending impacts people in your community. Your money is not going towards funding toxic chemical products, or enriching an already rich group of people. Your money goes back into your community and the people who live there.
