Roo-duce, Roo-use, Roo-cycle: Pre-Roo Packing Tips

 

• Carpool - The less stuff you stack, the more people you can pack!
• Buy water in bulk and bring reusable bottles.
• Buy food in bulk.  Avoid bringing food that spoils easily and/or is individually wrapped.  Plan ahead and only bring the amount of food you need so you do not waste a lot of excess food.
• Think reusable before you buy disposable!
• Bring bags for garbage AND recycling.
• Avoid styrofoam coolers.
• Smokers - bring an ashtray! Every butt you throw on the ground has to be picked up by someone.
• Consider borrowing camping equipment before buying new (tent, cooler, tarp, grill, etc.).
• If you have to buy new, then reuse or recycle the box before you arrive on site.  Be sure to plan to bring your camping gear home with you – do not leave it behind to be thrown away!
• Avoid bringing unnecessary items that become pesky waste (sequins, silly string, confetti, balloons, packing peanuts, etc.)
