How do I pack my backpack sustainably?
Less is more. Pack only what is necessary, but pack it right.
Regional provisions and seasonal fruit and vegetables from the area are ideal for refreshments on the road. The use of these foods promotes local cycles, the short transport routes save CO2 and thus protect the environment.
A reusable hiking box serves not only as a container for the Marende, but also for the waste that accumulates. Because what I take up the mountain, I bring back down to the valley and dispose of properly there.
Sufficient liquid is also important on a hike. Every newly bought disposable bottle means waste. Fresh water can be refilled in refillable drinking water bottles at drinking water fountains.
For human needs, pack a toilet paper as emergency paper. Paper tissues take 5 years, toilet paper only 2-4 weeks to decompose in nature.
