Tips for “Green” Camping

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.
