Eco Friendly Camping Tips

By: Ivana Bozic

Yahoo has compiled a few must haves for those going camping this summer to make their experience more eco friendly.

The most important thing on the list is to make sure you have solar powered equipment. Campers have options on generators, lanterns, backpacks, and bug zappers that are all useful, reliable, and 100% solar powered.

Other important items include reusable cutlery and linens. Instead of using a pack (or a few) of disposable forks and knives, it’s much healthier for the environment if campers go for reusable napkins, plates, and cutlery. It also seems more beneficial as far as cost to reuse the items.

Natural fire starters are also mentioned because campers can use things such as pine needles or dry grass to get their fire going.

Green Cleaning Products Review

In the above video Good Housekeeping set out to test and find out which eco friendly products worked best.

With so many people focusing more and more of going “green” and keeping things “natural” it’s important to see which products get the best reviews by experts. Going green is in no way cheap for the most part, chances are eco friendly products will cost more than the regular store brand names. If you’re spending more then it’s good to know if you’re spending your money wisely.

There are websites devoted to selling only green products as well as groups who dedicate themselves to bettering the environment for future generations.

Going green shouldn’t be looked at as time consuming or tedious, there are certainly ways to do so without having to spend loads of money and there’s always some form of help to turn to on the internet. Small changes to every day essentials can actually make a significant change.
