Turkey huntingWith Thanksgiving right around the corner, I’m sure many of you hunters have already been thinking about Turkey season.

Tips for “Green” Camping

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Coast recently published an article called Simple Green Camping Tips in which they offer a number of great ideas to simplify — and “greenify” — your camping experience. Here’s a quick overview of what they recommend:

  • Bring a Tent, Not an RV. Just think of the savings on power, fuel, and water…
  • Pack Biodegradable. Specifically, find soaps and sanitizers that are safe for local wildlife and their habitats.
  • Pack Reusable. Planning on using styrofoam or paper products? Don’t. Pack the real plates, cups, napkins, etc.
  • LED Lights. LEDs are the innovation to beat these days. Brighter beams, longer life, and green, green, green.
  • Leave No Trace. In other words, treat your campsite like you would a neighbor’s home — leave it better than how you found it.
