Rubbish after outdoor activities
Going to a hike, which will not last a single day, there are still long transitions and stops, nobody wants to take the waste with them, where to put them, it becomes incomprehensible. If you look, it is possible to minimize the garbage.
If you are going to use reusable containers in the forest, you should not pack products in plastic bags, but paper ones, which are used for making fires. This is called a recreation culture, which you need to learn yourself and teach your children.
As a result, long hikes, overnight in tents, romance, will not be disturbed by the buzz of flies eating the remnants of the feast scattered across the meadow and attracting animals.
It is impossible to bury plastic bags, especially plastic bottles, because plastic is poisonous and is a good combustible material that can easily provoke a fire in the forest. Therefore, we pack all inorganics into packages, we take it with us.
Waste classification and disposal problems
Each type of garbage has its own structure with a different period of decomposition.
The waste is toxic, there is no harmless garbage, any one carries a lot of problems to all living things, are classified into the following groups:
Organic matter in the process of decay emits an unpleasant odor, being a source of reproduction of various bacteria that have a destructive factor for the flora and fauna.
Scattered food waste attracts unwanted guests, which can be a great danger to tourists, and rotting ones turn into animals into poison.
Such waste does not decompose for a long time, cluttering up nature and forming a certain thermocap in the place of contact with the ground, from which there are wounds on the ground, which are restored for a long time, becoming the cause of the formation of ravines, the main enemies of the forest.
By adding inorganic wastes, the problem of disposal is not solved, and even more damage is caused to the entire ecosystem due to the long-term decomposition and release of toxic substances into the soil, water and air. The only way out is dumping.
To avoid damaging effects on the environment, and the rest involves a long time, you can do the following:
Paper, cardboard, bio-packaging can be placed in a fire and burn without harming others. So that the wind does not carry the ashes around the open area, and for safety, it is better to sprinkle the place from the fire pit with earth, thus, the green cover is restored more quickly.
How not to try to be extremely careful, always remain cleaning and leftover food. This is organic waste that quickly decomposes in nature. Under the shrub, it is necessary to carefully remove the sod, dig a hole and place all food debris there, dig in and also carefully return the sod pillow to the place. After that, this place is good to pour water. Food for a short time will rot, creating a top dressing for plants. The main thing is to release all waste from plastic bags, otherwise all efforts will be in vain, and plastic will again appear on the surface dug out by animals.
In the same way we deal with wastes of life, burying them in remoteness from the parking lot.
Remains of bread and cereals can be crumbled on a stump or open meadow, where there will always be forest dwellers willing to feast on themselves.
The cans are made of thin metal, which quickly oxidizes in air, especially when interacting with water, in order to speed up the decomposition process as much as possible, it is necessary to get rid of the anti-corrosion coating by placing them in a fire. After firing, the banks are easily deformed, flatten them with a stone, thereby reducing in volume, and are also buried in the ground like food waste. Banks quickly oxidize under the influence of atmospheric influence and will not cause harm.
Unfortunately, things are worse with plastic, if it is better not to take such a package, and if you take it with you, you will have to carry it as well. It is not recommended to burn plastic, since it releases a toxic gas during combustion, which can lead to poisoning.
Although opinions are ambiguous and many are inclined to think that gas is not toxic, of course, if you compare the exhaust from cars in the city, the burning of plastic in a campfire will seem to be the lesser of evils.
There is always a choice, but it is better to avoid similar disposal and take out the garbage to the first dustbin.
The glass does not burn, but is decently deformed in the fire, after which the glass needs to be poured with water, it will become fragile which can be carefully crushed to a state of sand, you will not cause any problems and environmental consequences with such actions, therefore this is the best solution for a heavy burden. In no case do not just throw the glass and, moreover, do not punch it without prior treatment, it can cause deep wounds to be inflicted not only on people, but also on animals. In order not to bother with such recycling, if possible avoid such packaging.
These actions are well carried out at each parking place in the course of cooking or spending the night, and not at the last moment, leaving a fire in the fire.
Such simple ways to get rid of a significant amount of garbage, and radically solving the problem with the environment.
Always remember! Garbage in a campaign turns into a real disaster, leaving less space for trees, flowers and animals. With a barbaric attitude to nature, man will not get it on earth.
When the culture of behavior on vacation rises, fires will cease to arise, destroying the still so magnificent forest. Fewer plants will be entered into the red book, nature will begin to recover, returning animals and birds to its home.
