As the leading outdoor meal producer, we feel it is our responsibility to make sure the outdoors is available for everyone, including future generations. Our goal is to have the resources available so our user can learn how to use the outdoors safely and responsibly.
A non-profit organization that uses the power of science to provide research driven solutions for the protection of the natural world. They achieve their mission through education, skills, research and science to help people care for the outdoors.
90% of people who visit the outdoors are uninformed about the importance of minimizing their impacts. With billions of trips into the outdoors every year in the U.S., people are causing significant, yet preventable damage. From littered parks to damaged trails, to the impacts of wildfire, water pollutions and wildlife issues, Leave No Trace is leading the charge to change this trend.
The Leave No Trace organization believes that if people do something, even if it's something simple, to help take care of the outdoors, we will all benefit and so will the outdoors we love.
Not completely. However, we do need to set the bar high in terms of our values and outdoor ethics. We need to look at Leave No Trace as a philosophy that guides us in our outdoor adventures. If we all pitch in and do what we can to minimize our impact, it would go a long way towards protecting the places we love.
