If you want to go on a Green camping trip, there are plenty of recyclable items you can take with you. Much camping equipment is not sustainable, but there are some useful pieces of gear available for camping and hiking.
Your tent can be a part of your Eco-friendly camping trip. There are tents that are made with 100% recycled materials, from zippers to pole clips to the tent fabric itself. You can use them three seasons of the year. The floor, fly and tent and crafted from materials that have been recycled. You may also buy tents online that are pre-owned, so check out the options available to you.
Your sleeping back can also be Eco-friendly. They are just as durable and comfortable as traditional sleeping bags, and they are made from post-consumer waste. Some sleeping bags are made from re-purposed water bottles. If you need to clean yourself, dishes or clothes you can use a concentrated, biodegradable cleaner. Be sure that you wash 300 or more feet from any water.
As an Earth-friendly camper, you should leave your campsite the way you found it. Take all your trash home when you leave, since Eco-friendly supplies don’t mean that you’re allowed to litter.
