2. Used Gear - Choose used gear or rented camping equipment for a lighter carbon footprint. If you prefer a new sleep bag, try an eco-friendly camping gear option made out of recycled materials.

3. Clean Soap - Remember to wash you dishes with natural, biodegradable soap. Harsh detergents will introduce toxins into to the environment. Waste water should emptied into dry ground, or as directed by the camping facility, and never into a stream or river.

5. Minimal Electricity - Leave electronics behind to connect deeper with nature and reduce energy usage. For flashlights and cameras use rechargeable batteries or bring along a solar charger. Keep your emergency cell phone powered up and stick to the essentials.
