CITO by example

Recommended Posts

Like most who stop through this part of the board, I carry trashbags, gloves, and hand sanitizer in my cache bag. If I see more than a couple things, along a trail I'll dig out the garbage bags and start loading up. I freely admit that picking up trash sucks, I hate trying to juggle the bag, gps, and picking up trash; but it helps make it look better, and it's a little more positive PR to have someone wearing "Geocache" shirt or patch cleaning vs yet another bomb-squad taking up geocaching.

 

Have you ever noticed when you're doing some trail cleaning, that you end up shaming others into helping clean up a bit too?

 

Especially if you've got the big trashbag and are off the trail under stuff trying to get to something ugly, they're a lot more likely to stop and pick up a little bit of the light stuff closer to them. Also people are a lot more likely to stop and want to talk to you because of it.

I've been walking back from the beach through the bush from a cache picking up rubbish and bumped into a couple and as we were walking and talking they ended up with handfuls of rubbish aswell.

So I think it works!

Do like me and take a little dog-poop bag dispenser and use the little dog-poop bags... Not very good if there's tons of trash, but it attaches right on to my carabiner clip... Along with my GPS, my pen...
