Green tourist code
Bonfire and nearby
- During cooking use gas, petrol and other materials, which you have brought with yourself, as a combustible to the maximum degree.
- Usage of local wood is allowed, if its procurement and burning is not connected with spoliation of live trees, herbage and topsoil.
- Take care of economical use of gasoline (use cover for dishes, construct windproof and heat-reflecting walls, screens, etc.)
- Start a fire on the used fire pits or places, which are free of vegetation and other vulnerable natural features.
- If there are no above-mentioned places, you must: remove sod from the herbage promptly, humidify and retain it. On the obtained place you can start a fire. Whenever you are done, sod must be returned on the previously covered with water coal and then watered once again.
- Peat soil: place for the bonfire pit has to be entrenched, stone layer and metal sheet have to be placed to the bottom. Place has to be besieged with stones and watered amply around the perimeter. When you are done, place must be watered intensively. Residual process of glowing or smoking is strongly unacceptable.
Have in mind! The majority of forest fires occur because of bonfires!
- Dump well, which is regularly strewed with neutral substances (sand, sawdust), prevents from smelling and interaction with insects and is provided in the special place.
- When you leave the encampment, toilet must be embed and covered with sod, which had been removed and retained.
- Use bonfires burnable economically (if you can refrain from burning, do it).
- Spin out electric energy (chemical source, generator on hydrocarbon fuel or unconventional source).
- Use unconventional natural sources to the maximum degree: wind, thermal waters, sunbeams, etc. (for big camps).
- Take as few packing, disposable cutlery and single-use object as possible because you will have to toss it in the garbage afterwards.
- If you have bought products in the packing, you must repack it in more reliable and convenient reusable packing before the camping.
- Use as few amounts of dishes, plastic packing, which contacts with food, as possible. Usage of PVC plastic (it is labeled with PVC) is unacceptable! Throughout camping/camp appearing garbage is divided into three classes: Class 1: food waste (remainders of vegetable and animal source food) is recycled in compost pits or soil; Class 2: easily degradable and burning material-1 (paper, wood, secure plastics) is recycled by burning on the bonfire; Class 3: non-degradable and burning material-2 (metal, glass, dangerous plastics, e.g. PVC) is recycled by bringing to the nearest garbage container.
Washing and laundering
- Launder and wash dishes at the distance not less than 50 meters from the nearest water objects (streams, lakes, rivers, etc.).
- Dirty water must be spattered on the ground to make it filter with soil (you must not pour it to the water body!).
- Bathe using soap and shampoo at the distance not less 50 meters from the nearest water body.
- Avoid transfer of fat and oiled food to the stagnant water bodies. Before washing dishes remove fat mechanically (using duster, etc.). In addition, it will save your detergents.
- Use natural detergents (ashes, sand), inherently biodegradable and non-chlorine detergent synthetic materials.
- Laundering and bathing has to be carried out with minimal amount of synthetic detergents. Detergents that you use have to be as natural as possible.
