Keep recyclables separate/bagged, and dispose of properly. Don’t forget to put out your campfire. Take along reusable cooking/dining containers instead of disposable items.
At the Beach
Take your own water bottle. Bring your empty sunscreen bottles back home to be recycled. Take your own drinks/snacks in reusable containers. Much cheaper than disposables!
At the Park
Don’t forget to look for small items that may have been discarded. Serve drinks/snacks/meals using everyday dinnerware/silverware. Everyone will feel pampered, and you’ll have less waste to dispose of.
In your backyard
Use only one of each cup/plate/flatware. Offer to help with cleanup and sorting of recyclables. Your hosts will appreciate it! Don’t forget to clean up all of the spent fireworks after a backyard fireworks display.
Leave the Earth the way you found it… Clean up your litter!
