If you love to go camping in your RV, there’s a good chance that you appreciate nature and all the great outdoors has to offer. Help preserve Earth’s natural beauty by following these eco-friendly tips for RVing.
Be smart when packing
While disposable dinnerware, like paper plates and plastic cutlery, may be convenient to pack, they’re also not good for the environment. Ditch the plastic and instead use real dinnerware, which you can wash and reuse. Packing smart also means bringing weather-appropriate clothing so you can run the heat less, as well as bringing natural cleaning products and lead-free fishing equipment.
Be good neighbors
When at campgrounds, always clean up after yourself. Leaving trash behind is not only inconsiderate of future campers but also harmful to nature. When washing up, be sure to also keep away from rivers and lakes, since soaps and detergents are potentially dangerous to aquatic life.
Reuse and recharge
Many items can be reused before they need to be thrown out or recycled. You can easily wash bottles, milk jugs, and even tinfoil and then reuse them to lower waste. It’s also a great idea to rely on rechargeable batteries for your electronics, rather than single-use ones.
Keep your RV efficient
Taking your RV in for routine maintenance can give you better gas mileage and help you conserve energy. Similarly, keeping your tires properly inflated and avoiding cruise control while in the mountains can help you save on fuel.
