5 Outdoor Eco-Friendly Fall Tips
1. Leave No Trace
The ‘leave no trace’ principle is simple yet effective. It includes picking up after yourself, staying on designated trails, and respecting the wildlife and vegetation nearby.
2. Choose Reusable Gear
Investing in reusable outdoor gear like utensils, water bottles, and containers helps reduce single-use plastic.
3. Minimize Campfire Impact
If you’re camping, consider opting for a camp stove for cooking instead of making open fires.
4. Clean Up After Your Pets
Furry friends are always welcome to the outdoor festivities. If you bring pets, ensure you clean up after them.
5. Opt For Sustainable Transportation
If you live in a big city, try exploring public transportation, carpool to work, bike to the park, or walk to your outdoor destination to reduce your carbon footprint.
