Nine out of ten people who visit public lands are uninformed about how to best protect natural resources. With over 13 billion trips into the outdoors in the U.S. every year, people are causing too much preventable damage, and that damage is adding up fast. This worrisome trend contributes to trash in parks and damaged trails, the formidable impacts of fire, increasingly polluted waterways, and wildlife issues.
Non-profit organization, Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics generates solutions to these critical problems and partners with companies that share a passion and commitment for protecting our cherished outdoor resources.
