Why all the trash?

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:01 pm

This summer on camping and climbing trips we noticed a disgusting trend that needs to be discouraged.  In several places on Vancouver Island and in the Vancouver area, a lot of garbage was being left behind by lazy people. Sights like this one, from an unauthorized campsite in otherwise scenic Strathcona Park, were all too common.

Pick up your trash!

Pick up your trash!

There’s no excuse for this for the parties involved;  just clean up after yourself.   In addition, maybe the obvious vendors of some of the products in this photo can increase their efforts to promote the use of re-usable coffee cups and such instead of this used-once trash. And no, a lot of this stuff shouldn’t be burned. Much of it can be recycled, too.
