When you camp it feels inevitable that you will have to use plastics. Although it is more difficult, there are alternatives to plastics when camping. Rather than purchasing large gallons of plastic water bottles, you can get secondhand 10+ gallon containers for water. Tents are lined with plastic but there are many cotton tents that do the same job. Additionally, there are canvas, wood and metal camping cots available for your camping needs. Reusable pots, pans and silverware are important to utilize as well. You are spending time in nature, don’t discredit the experience by contaminating it with plastic materials.
