Eliminating Waste At The Camp


Paying Attention to Packaging – When out shopping, we try to go to stores or co-ops that keep the packaging to a minimum. For example, we choose to buy loose tomatoes rather than boxed or plastic-wrapped tomatoes. Also, take reusable bags to the grocery store. When it comes to resources, plastic is better than paper — but a reusable cloth tote-style bag is better still.

Ditch bottled water – Bottled water has a huge carbon footprint. It’s bottled at one location in small plastic bottles and shipped all over. We have moved away from offering bottled water, to using in-house RO filtration systems that make tap/ groundwater a good choice. Plastic water bottles make the footprints even bigger.
