Canvas and Cast - as responsible wholesalers, campers and as fellow human beings Ask all campers to try and follow the 7 basic principles.
The most important - leave no trace.
Leave No Trace is a set of principles for participation in outdoor recreation that seeks to minimize the impact on the natural environment. Proponents of Leave No Trace believe that individual impacts caused by recreation can accumulate to degrade the land. Therefore, the Leave No Trace message encourages people who spend time in the out-of-doors to behave in such a way that they can minimize unavoidable impacts and prevent avoidable impacts. It is often summarized:
"Take only photos, leave only foot prints."
The 7 Principles
Leave No Trace provides a framework for outdoor recreation decision making, which is summarized in the following 7 principles:
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare:
2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces:
3. Dispose of Waste Properly:
4. Leave What You Find:
5. Minimize Use and Impact of Fire: Leave No Trace encourages people to use lightweight camp stoves, instead of fires, because the naturalness of many areas has been degraded by overuse of fires and the increasing demand for firewood. If a campfire is constructed, Leave No Trace suggests using an existing fire ring in a well-placed campsite or to use a fire pan or mound fire. True Leave No Trace fires show no evidence of having ever been constructed.
6. Respect Wildlife:
7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors: Following hiking etiquette and maintaining quiet allows visitors to go through the wilderness with minimal impact on other users.
