Don’t Litter on your Kayaking Trip!

Make sure you bring everything away with you that you originally brought on your trip: don’t litter!

Just like most activities in the outdoors, kayaking will often require for you to set up camp of some sort and may even require that you do things that will produce litter or other trash. It’s important to realize that there is a reason why so many different groups of people say “don’t litter”, and therefore, you should always be careful with anything that you pack or bring in with you if you’re going to be kayaking in a pristine area.

While you probably don’t need to be told not to litter, you should keep in mind that it is important to make sure that you are being even more careful about it than you might be if you are in the middle of a city or other area. One reason for this is the effect that things you leave behind might have on the local wildlife. Some types of litter can result in birds or small animals getting caught and strangling to death.

One good rule of thumb that you should keep in mind besides don’t litter is that the best way to do this is to make sure that you pack out everything that you pack in. One thing that is usually pretty helpful in this is to bring a small, waterproof bag to keep your trash in (non-waterproof bags might get messier than you’d like – if water can get in, then it is possible that some of your trash could leak out of the bag and make a mess.

You should also consider that most areas which have don’t litter rules also have fines in place just in case somebody doesn’t follow the rule. Therefore, if you want to make sure that you don’t get fined a lot of money for littering while you’re on your trip, then you should be very careful with what you do.

Another thing you should consider is that the packaging on food can sometimes blow away while you are cooking if you’re not careful. Therefore, you should make sure that you take care of all of your trash as soon as you make some, instead of waiting until it is time to clean up. If some of your garbage blows away, then you’ll still be littering, even if it is only by accident.
