One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I could get on board with that saying sometimes. Can’t use a shovel? Sure someone else could use it! Can’t use plastic storage tubs? Sure someone else could use it! Cleaned out your home and found that you have 100 extra spatulas? Sure a bunch of people could use them!
Let’s talk about trash that is not treasure.
This is trash! Plastic bottles, cigarette butts, gum wrappers, and chip bags are all trash! Collected these items along this trail today as well as kept our trash in this bag.
Where does trash belong? Not here. Not in nature. Not for others to pick up after you. If you don’t want to carry it on your hike, don’t bring it!
