I'm new here and maybe members know this, but we just figured out on a recent 6 weeks camping in SW States, that National Parks and Monuments in USA always have recycling bins. State parks and other local areas rarely do. We always collect our bottles, cans and plastic in a bin, and take them with us until we locate a recycling spot rather than throwing them out when packing up. We also try to avoid plastic plates/cutlery and clean dishes as we would in our own home. I limit use of paper towels except to wipe really messy/greasy dishes, and have had the same plates/cutlery for ten years -- it's still going fine. And NO plastic WATER BOTTLES...it is so easy to have a blue bin of fresh water on hand, and/or refillable water bottles. We keep two filled water bottles in the car, and one by the sink or a cup handy to use the tap water. Our 25+ son constantly reminds us of our responsibilities in that we all have to start cutting back on so much non-reusable products. The trash bins of the world are overflowing...and there are so many better alternatives to single-use plastic wrap and other unnecessary waste. Just do it! Camping is a great way to get back to basics and seeing first hand in our beautiful parks the need to work harder for the next generation. Good luck with your clean camping!
