Random Acts of Greenness: Outdoor Etiquette

Put the can in the recycling bin When we do something nice for a stranger without expecting anything in return, we call it a random act of kindness. We think that the same principle can be applied to our quest to live greener lives. This week we'll offer ideas for good deeds that'll make people smile and help the planet.

Tip #4: Be a Good Steward

The next time you hike your favorite trail or take a stroll on the beach, aim to leave it a better place than you found it. Collect any trash or recyclables you find along the way and put them in the proper receptacles. Your cleaning effort will help protect fragile ecosystems and make the outdoor experience more enjoyable for the next person who visits that spot.
