Can I Be a More Sustainable Bushwalker?

Most bushwalkers recognize that Victoria’s natural areas are a valuable and fragile resource. ‘Tread Softly’ has become embedded in the bushwalker’s code: we understand the importance of low-impact walking and the need to conserve and protect our favourite places.

We can become even more environmentally sustainable walkers by adopting new habits and continually making low-impact choices – when choosing a walk and outdoor clothing; when choosing, purchasing and packaging food; when choosing where to pitch a tent; by practising the three R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Geof Martin, a member of Melbourne Bushwalkers, has put together this wonderfully comprehensive article with thoughtful hints on how to become an even more sustainable walker.
