Round 'em up, Campers!
As we are all Earth Guardians at our upcoming shindig, let's sail down the trail of LEAVE NO TRACE! Together, we can make a yeehawin' impact by keepin' our surroundings as clean as a freshly swept saloon floor.
Here's some tips to help us be responsible stewards of our beautiful range:
Don't Bring Trash
Batten down the hatches and leave behind the excessive packaging. Strap on your reusable bags and aim to cut down on waste at every turn.
Lasso Them Shinies
Make sure your glitzy bits, bottle tops, and such are roped down tight to your gear. If somethin' tumbles off, it's become MOOP (Matter Out Of Place).
Trail Check Before You Ride Off
Before you mosey on from any spot, take a gander 'round and make sure you ain't dropped nothin'. If you spot somethin' amiss, be neighborly and pick it up, and dispose of it properly to honor the spirit of community. Lost and found round up at Volunteer HQ!
Keep MOOP Out of the Outhouse
Dispose of personal hygiene items like wipes properly, and don't go leavin' 'em scattered about the prairie or in the portos. Keep a bag for wipes and a bag for trash, and when they've served their purpose, toss 'em where they belong, in your trash at home.
Don't MOOP in the POOP
Dispose of them personal hygiene items, like them wipes, in a proper manner. Don't be abandonin' 'em in the big blue boxes. Keep a bag for the wipes and a bag for trash, and when they've served their purpose, toss 'em where they belong, in your trash at home... And remember, don't be stowin' your phone in your back pocket – lest ye be riskin' an unfortunate accident!
Separate Your Recycling
If the wind be in your favor and ye can separate them recyclables, do it like you're sortin' through your treasure chest. Crush them cans like you're squeezin' gold from a doubloon, and make use of multiple MOOP buckets if you have 'em. Keep 'em under wraps like a treasure map, so nothin' escapes.
Appoint a MOOP Wrangler
Choose a trusty hombre or hombre-ette within yer camp to be the MOOP Wrangler. They'll be the rootin'est, tootin'est varmint in charge of organizin' the sweep.
Roundup the Pre-Exodus MOOP
Before we pack up and hit the dusty trail, gather 'round like a posse and do a thorough MOOP sweep of your campsite. Pick up anything that don't belong in the natural landscape, from zip ties to the shiniest of trinkets and all else that glitters.
Leave No Trace
Remember, it's our sacred duty as Earth Guardians to MOOP it before we mosey on out. Don't be lettin' our campsite become a snake pit of clutter. Leave the land as pristine as a clear desert sky at sundown!
Let's ride out as Earth Guardians and be the kind of folks that'd make even the toughest cowpoke proud. Your little ol' actions can make a big difference, partner.
