Once again, it is that time of the year where we get to pack up our vehicles and find a new home for the next few nights. It is camping season.
Camping is good for the body, mind & soul. This is due to many things including the nature, new social adventures and self reflection. Hopefully your spot has no wifi, no cell service and lots of room for activities. I can't wait to go soon.
Growing up in the Kootenay's I learned to enjoy and respect the outdoors as much as I possibly can. Recently, I have discovered and become upset at how some of us use camping as an excuse to buy mass single use products. To add, the amount of food being gone to waste during and after a camping trip is usually not minimal. It is very easy to overpack for events in the woods. I also would have a hard time with how much plastic people place into the fire-pits. Anyways... I have decided to create this post to help us become more aware and eco-friendly in nature (yes, I am a tree hugger vegetarian).
The following is a list of ideas we can use to be more environmentally friendly in the woods while still enjoying everything the same. Make sure to check this list before your next trip away. Enjoy!
That is all for today everybody. Thanks for reading and please feel free to share. I would like to thank my Outdoor Education Class of May 2019 for helping me come up with these ideas in class.
